So you know I have a killer car, it's a 2006 Chrysler 300 SRT with a Hemi engine. Bad ass car. Expensive as fuck. $350 per tire to replace. Shitty gas mileage. But damn it's pretty...
It's also a leased vehicle and the lease is up January 17th.
Oh, and I just found out two weeks ago that I am already over my miles.
Anyway, I've been shopping for a car for a couple of weeks now, and finally found it yesterday.
So I bought myself a new car for my son's birthday.
Welcome to my new 2010 Nissan Altima!
(Clearly I have a thing for silver cars!)
My young trendy Nestie girls would call this a "push present", albeit 19 years late. LOL
I'm very happy with it. It has all the same bells and whistles that my 300 has except navigation and the Hemi engine. The nav came in handy during times when I'm showing houses but hell, I can buy a Garmin. And the Hemi was nice when idiots on the road in front of me were driving too slow and I wanted to zoom around them, but otherwise all it did was cause me to slide all over the freaking road in the snow and give me a whopping 15 miles to the gallon.
But the best part is that the car payment is half what the 300 was, and that makes me really, really happy.
Oh and it has a feature the other car didn't....a cool iPod interface in the nifty Bose stereo so I can listen to music on my iPhone when I'm driving!!! Yay! (This would be my son's favorite feature on the car, as you can imagine.)
So I'm all kinds of happy with my new car! And my 300 is parked in my back garage for the next month until I can turn it in on January 17th. Yay!
