Some of you may recall that I have said I would never buy a brand new car again. I seriously dislike the idea of a loan, etc. However, given my current circumstances, I think the warranty and the certainty of the car starting every morning is worth the expense. Not to mention that the money I had saved up won't buy much of a used car in the Northwest. So my dad graciously has loaned me the money for this little car. And I picked it up Tuesday.
It's a 2008 Hyundai Accent. I call it the RS model. For Roller Skate.
It's little. But, oh, the gas mileage.
Here's something funny. Did you know you can get a car without a stereo? I did. It's wired with speakers, but not getting the actual radio in the car saves you $400. And I can get one installed for $150.
All you have to do is ask for the base, base, base model. It also has no A/C, which I thought would not be a problem, since we don't live in the midwest. Then we got blasted with 90+ degree weather! :) Oh well!
