Enough is Enough Already

Last weekend I did something I didn’t want to do. I bought a car. I was 5 payments away from paying the last one off.
But we’d been having problems with the vehicle almost from the day we rolled it off the lot. And by that I mean the battery went within 24hrs. 6 months ago, the transmission went. And we had a check engine light that kept coming on for nearly 3 years (the dealership said it was our gasoline that we were using and they’d turn it off for a while) But the last straw was a 5 year old vehicle failing emissions for a computer problem.
Put a fork in it, cuz it was done. I was breathing steam when I got home and told my husband the issues in a very loud voice.
Then, we had to decide if we wanted a new car with the extended payments or pay gobs of money to fix the unfixable. My husband very subtlety let me know he wanted a new one.
Since both of us knew we couldn’t count on Putin keeping gas prices down indefinitely, we went with a hybrid.
We had considered a Ford, but the last Ford we owned kept trying to kill us (which kinda turned us off for life on the brand). While I love my GMC truck, the last two Chevy’s we had were lemons. Giant lemons.
So had to pick between a Honda and Toyota. My folks have a Honda, and my friend plus a sister-in-law have a Toyota. We stopped at the Honda dealer first because it was on the right side of the road. 5 hours later we walked out with a Honda Civic hybrid and another 5 years of car payments.
My husband keeps singing the Jeffersons theme song and feels like he’s in a luxury vehicle. And it is nice.
I just hope it isn’t a lemon.

    You should have bought a Founder’s dreadnaught or something similar.
