This will be old news to my Facebook friends, but less than a month ago I purchased a 2008 Honda Civic. You might recall how I was debating earlier about whether to get a Civic or another Altima. Well, the blue car stole my heart.
Buying a slightly-used car made more sense, because my second older car didn’t qualify for the “Cash for Clunkers” program. Moon still had the new car smell without the new car price tag. I even got the owner to come down $695 off his asking price, which put the cost below book value.
I’ve named her “Moon,” since she’s blue and from Kentucky. She is quite gorgeous – inside and out – and I’m thrilled that she got 39.2 miles per gallon on a recent road trip. She also plays mp3 cds, so I filled up a disc with 105 songs and it’s like having my own personal radio station (without the commercials, of course).
