That's right, we made a big financial decision today, and got a new car... well not really new, it's a '94. New to us though, and we're the second owners. We bought it from my wife's aunt.
We needed a second car (relatives got sick of us mooching rides all the time) and we got a good deal. We bought it with cash, and it is very reliable.
Plus it's fun to drive.
I've been driving a car that is a high mileage car for a while now, and this new semi gas-guzzler really has some pep, which I am thoroughly enjoying. Other than that, I'll put some air in the tires and see how long she runs.
Anyone have any first car horror stories? Post them in the comments, especially if they will help others avoid making costly mistakes.
