I haven't blogged about it..
but I've had some serious car issues lately.
In the past month my car has broken down twice, and been in the shop for repairs that were supposed to have been fixed previously. We are over VW to say the least. So upon picking Betsy the VW beetle up from VW, we drove straight to carmax to get her little self appraised.
Then we went car shopping.
We hit up Nissan first, and test drove the Rogue. Test driving cars makes me nervous.. it felt like I was 16 again and taking my driving test.. but I survived! Then we went to Hyundai and test drove the Elantra. We have been researching cars online since my car broke down the other night for the 3rd time in the last 6 months, and had narrowed down our options.
By the end of the day we ended up back at Nissan, had them appraise Betsy.. figure up payment plans and ladies and gents: We traded sweet little Betsy in for a 2011 Rogue! I am so incredibly excited!!
It was hard to say goodbye to her though, we've been through a lot together. I got Betsy December of 2005 before I turned 16, and she's a 2002 VW turbo.. with only 83,000 miles. You would expect a car to last longer than that. So enough of my blubbering.. here's our last picture together. :'(
Sadly the dealership didn't have the Rogue in the color we wanted, so my White Rogue is currently in transit and should be there for me to pick up soon! It's going to be so nice to drive a car that I don't have to worry about car problems with. Tow trucks are not fun.. and multiple repairs aren't either.
But I definitely plan on a Memorial post for sweet Betsy.. or should it be Honorary Post? She isn't exactly dead.. but it's kind of in memory of her.. I'm stumped with that one.
