It was time to get Laila a new car. She had been driving the same Honda for 10 years and it was showing signs of wear. Besides the 150,000 + miles it had picked up a disturbing habit lately of dying while driving it. The advantage of all the car rentals I have driven over the last few years was we knew what we wanted. When we saw a local dealership knock $4000 off of their list price on a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix for a weekend sale we decided to go for it.
I know I feel better just knowing that my bride will not be stuck on the side of I-75 for any period of time.
Unbelievable thing I discovered was that they did not fill the tank, I didn't realize gas was that expensive!
