So, it’s the end of an era. My beloved Jeep is on its last legs. I thought the old girl would have at least a few goods years left in her, but it seems that way too often there are things that need fixing, and each time this happens, we are dropping a good thousand dollars.
On Monday, we discovered that my jeep is leaking oil. And it’s not just dripping, it’s pouring out. I can see the number signs in my head….i know it will be another grand to fix.
I’m realizing that it may be time to say goodbye. But, i dread the day – for two reasons. The first, naturally, is because this car is my baby. i’ve had it since i was 16, and I love it. It’s the only car I’ve ever had, the only one I’ve ever driven. It’s become a part of me. I will be very sad to see it go.
The second reason is that I know in my heart that I will be getting a minivan. I am not a minivan person. Do you hear that world??? I am an SUV driver…and no matter what, I always will be. But, we just can’t afford it. The Honda Pilot that i really want…is just way way more money than let’s say, the Dodge Grand Caravan. So, I know I’m going to end up with a van. cripes.
anyone out there have any opinions on leasing vs. buying? we aren’t sure what to do with this next purchase. Two of our friends are leasers and are beginning to steer us in that direction, but we aren’t 100% sold. anyone? anyone?
