So, I bought my car 4 years ago. It’s a two door Tiburon, no bells and whistles, slow, but sporty and cute. It get’s decent gas mileage, puts up with all the hell I give it, but I want something more – something BIGGER.
I took it in for some much needed love today ($250 worth), and they gave me the new Sonata as a rental while they worked on it. Now, the new Sonata is one of the cars I was looking at. Right now I’m on the fence between it and a new Tuscon.
Well, of course – new is better.
But, I told myself I wouldn’t get a new car until I was 25, which is 2 1/2 years from now. It would allow me to pay off my car, be car payment free for a year and a half (which means mucho savings), and give me a paid off car to trade, plus decent down payment on an SUV with the bells and whistles.
Lord – please give me the strength to wait. It’s so hard when I know I can have a much nicer car, with Leather, heated seats, and a Sunroof for around $20K TODAY! Could I afford it? Absolutely, especially since I’m due for a raise in June. A SUBSTANTIAL/promotion raise.
So – if you could get a new car today, what would you get? And what do you currently have?
