Because I have been good, very very good, Santa delivered my Xmas present early.
I have seriously been considering a new car for a while. Have done my research online and even visited a few dealers to help make decisions. It narrowed down to a Honda CR-V. This would be a replacement of my current CR-V which I love!
Yesterday I decided to visit a dealer to physically view the items that would help me make a decision. Model LX or EX? Although I did not want the sunroof that came with the EX, the alloy wheels, fog lights, and variable intermittent wipers were only so-so for me.
The color I wanted was on their lot though in the EX model. As I struggled with a decision between what I wanted vs. what I was willing to pay $$ for, the salesman kept sweetening the offer. In the excitement, I had nearly forgotten a couple of required accessories. Again the offer was sweetened a bit and I also upped my down payment a bit.
When all was said and done, I got what I wanted (and then some, such as the sunroof), kept my payments to what I could afford, and got 4 years of free oil changes. Six hours later, I left with the new baby.
The Bluetooth handsfree link for my phone is excellent and already set up. Playing music or podcasts from my phone will be nice! A bit better gas mileage too.
One critical task is to get the all-season tires sipped. Planning on doing that first thing tomorrow morning. All tire stores are closed on Sunday. And wouldn’t you know it; there is a winter weather advisory for snow tonight. Please cross your fingers that it does not amount to much as I won’t be driving the new baby if I can’t get down the street.
Happy holidays to all!
