So where does that leave me? That leaves me with some car shopping to do. doesn't that sound exciting? in some ways, yes it does....in others NO!!!
I don't want to grow up and be old enough to have a car payment. It just doesn't sound like any fun at all. In fact, in many ways I am not looking forward to car shopping. My coworker D* said she'd have her husband (a mechanic) take a look and see if he can fix it for cheap, but I'm just not sure I want to put any more money into this car. I'll probably just buy a newer car.
Buying a new car is also not fun because my credit union doesn't want to give me an auto loan (they're being stupid. I have excellent credit.) I know that i'll be able to get one from a dealer, I'd just rather not. although, from what I understand, the economy is such that I'll probably be able to get a really good deal on a newish car. I've never had a car that's younger than me, so it will be fun. I think. maybe. we'll see.....
if you have any suggestions on where to go to get a car in Utah County, or what kind of cars you've had the best experience with...please let me know! Thanks a billion!
