So my old SUV was falling apart. I was warned at a recent oil change that my exhaust system was “barely hanging on” and that I should get a new exhaust ASAP. The car had 107,000 miles, so I decided it was best to say my goodbyes and get a new vehicle. Olivia loved that car, but I had my issues with it…mainly piss poor gas mileage. Driving 52 miles (as I do weekly to pick up Olivia and drop her off) used almost a half a tank of gas. Couple that with the occasional date, gym trips, running errands, and work, and I was filling up once a week. Yeah..spendy.
The new car is certainly nothing flashy. No Audi or BMW here, it’s just not my style. I am a practical guy and settled for a decent car (not naming names) at a decent price. The biggest bonus, other than the car being brand spanking new, is that it gets amazing gas mileage. I have driven for 9 days on one tank of gas. I’ve picked up and dropped off Olivia, been back up that way, run my errands, etc., and I still have gas to show for it. Awesome. The increased car payment will actually be offset by the gas savings!
Anyway, I just wanted to share that. More posts to come later today.
