New Car

I'm getting a new car. A Subaru Impreza WRX to be precise.

You see, the motor died in my Kia Rio, and since the warranty expired a few months ago, it isn't worth fixing (estimates ranged from $2500 to $3500). I tried to find someone who wanted it, but no one did, not even for parts (A couple of years ago, Kia was giving Rios away to anyone who bought a real car). So it has been consigned to car-heaven, AKA a salvage yard.

And by new, I mean actually new (2008), not just new-to-me. I pick it up Saturday.

Yay, debt!

I guess congradulations are in order. So, how comes it that you decided to get a brand new car? Also, my condolences on the passing of your Rio.

I felt that I can afford it, and I've never had one before.

Funny. The only reason I got a new car, instead of a used, was that I really wanted a Toyota Echo, and there just weren't any used ones available locally. They'd only come out the year before. It's been a good little car, though, so I can't complain.
