Reasonable Price For A Car

Sponsored post

A friend of mine used to own a 1995 Lincoln Continental.  He loved that car, but it finally began to cost more to repair then the car was worth, after all, sentimentality on goes so far when it hits your budget.  So he donated it to charity, since it had quit running and began looking for a replacement vehicle.

Being on a fixed income, he wanted something that was serviceable and affordable.  He was not necessarily looking for a new car, but if one could be found at a reasonable price.  So where did he go to find a good deal?  He went to Cars.com.

Knowing my friend as well as I does, I was surprised at the car he ended up buying.  I thought he would go for a Cadillac or another Lincoln, but a Scion xb?  Well needless to say I was surprised.  But my friend said no matter how much he loved his Lincoln, the Scion was a much better fit for his budget and that he had said that three of his neighbors had the same model Scions.

He told me that he did his research on cars.com and was very satisfied with his results.  Now he has a used Scion xb and is happy with his new car.

I am not in the market for a new vehicle at the moment, but I thought I would take a look at the car.com website.  Since I live in a semi-rural area, I have thought about replacing my SUV with a pickup or small truck.

What I learned, is that I really don’t need to go and look through a lot Automobile Dealers to find the vehicle I want.  All I have to do is go to cars.com, find a vehicle I might like and the price it is selling for, then go to the dealer and take it for a test drive.

Just One Touch And He Goes Lively Again

It is indeed so tiring that all of a sudden your car just broke under the dreading heat of the sun.

Last Friday, the car was so conditioned when I started the engine of the car from work. I dropped by in China Bank to run my errands but then when I got back to the car, all a sudden the car won’t start that even if you have your sweat dropped and your soaking wet because it was hot inside the car plus the extremely heat of the sun, it feels like my blood is boiling and was already to explode. I gave up after of so many attempts to start the car. The guards were already looking at me, curious of what happened. I got out from the car and informed that my car just broke and I am so lucky!

I called my mechanic, asked him to come over because I can’t stand that my car will be left alone in the park spot of China Bank, I was thinking already expenses but to hell, I don’t care at all, I need to have it fix, I mean right away.

While waiting for him, I went to Pag Ibig to pay my monthly installment of our house and the other house. I took my lunch and went back to the bank where I left my car. My mechanic is already waiting for me and you know what, he just tightens the wiring of the magnetic and my car got lively again. He just started it like twice and viola!

Grocery shop must be done otherwise we don’t have anything to eat at home so I asked my mechanic if we can drop by at the mall for me to shop some foods, afterwards I was driving home, finally!

Groupon Coupons Valuable Assets For Us

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine

Saving money is very important to us.  We live on a fixed budget without much flexibility.  Most of our money goes to day to day necessities and paying our bills.  So any time we have a chance to save money we do it.  We do our best to take advantage of sales, coupons and any other kind of discounts we can to stretch our budget.

We have two daughters in school and we always put them first when it comes to their needs.  That’s why things like Groupon Coupons, are a valuable asset when planning a purchase.  School will be starting here soon so it’s time for us to start getting what our girls need.  From pencils to computers we can find a Groupon Coupon to help us save money.

We were surprised to learn about some of the items we can save money on, everything from auto parts, household appliances, to travel can be had by using a Groupon Coupon.

I was not really a big coupon user before, clipping coupons from newspapers and magazines just seemed to be too time consuming.  About the only coupons we used before we’re those that came in the mail or we by the item we wanted to purchase in the place we were shopping.  Now all we have to do is go on the internet and find what we need from such great places as Khols, Neiman Marcus, or products like Nike, travel like Hotwire or American Airlines.  It makes us much easier for us to save.

The Breaks Tight

Last Thursday, our mechanic sent the car to the house but when I started to drive it along downtown; I can sense that the break is so tight that the car was hard to move. So instead of the usual gear which 4th or 5th I lowered it to 2nd gear so we can move a little until we get to the hotel where Mj had her training. I asked the guard if I can leave the car inside their area and will just send the mechanic the next day. It was just right to leave the car in a place where there is guard around, I mean my friend had the same situation but with her she left the car on the side of the road near LTO. The next morning, there were police gathered suspecting the car carrying an explosive bomb. Good thing that they were able to trace the agency that takes care of the renewal of the license of the car and they were able to find the cellphone number of my friend. They contacted my friend, my friend told them that her car was broke and a mechanic will come to get it.
