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.

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.
