Can I just state that the only thing in the world I hate more than shopping for clothes is car shopping? I’ll drop 200 bucks on the newest Cyborg gaming mouse and won’t flinch when paying top shelf for a good Viking chef knife or a nice cut of standing rib, but the idea of buying a car just gives me the vapors. I’ve only ever had two- the Chevy and the Subaru, and right now I am just trying to do everything I can to find a car that was just like my last one.
I did the same thing when the Celebrity died. I was paralyzed by indecision for months, then just said fuck it and took the bus for two years before getting the Subaru. Right now I have my eyes on a used Honda CR-V and a used Acura, but I just don’t know. Maybe a Forester. I do know that as much as I loved my Outback Legacy, I am getting something taller this time, because I simply can not drive after dark with the glare from SUV’s and fracking trucks in my rear view mirror. That, and I demand AWD, because the roads around here simply require them anymore.
Any thoughts? If I can get through this debacle we call buying a car and escape paying under 8k for a new ride, I would be ecstatic. I just want to get from point a to point b, have awd, and not kill the wallet or the environment.
