We have been car shopping for a few weeks now. My car is tired and I am ready for a new one. I am pretty picky with all things in life that cost a TON of money, so cars are no different. But my luck seems to be running low!
Car #1 was chosen. Heck, I almost bought a keychain on Ebay with the car on it. Then I go in, talk about price, and ask to find this car. I was really hoping for this nice dark blue that was available in years past, but this year a new weird grey-blue is the option. I settle on black – I love everything about the car so I don’t mind settling for black. I tell the guy I want black, grey interior, navigation (we got lost on the way to a wedding once – yikes!) and the techno package. The guy then tells me they only have a white one on the lot with nav. I ask if he can see what else is around and he comes back to say “oh we do have one!” but then it turned out he really didn’t. We left and I emailed him saying “please tell me when this exact car comes in” and I never heard back. I asked other dealers around the state – all saying the car isn’t anywhere to be found. I decided to try a new car.
Car #2 was then chosen. This one I was still picky on, and as usual, the dark blue was an “odd” color and no one really had it. ONE was found in the US. It didn’t even have all of the options I had my heart set on, but again I decided to settle. Then price was discussed – and this guy would not budge. At all. I priced the car on the website and this guy was WAY over that price. I mean crazy over. He refused to budge. We left.
Car #3 was chosen with little research – I used to own the same brand so I was comfortable with it. I picked, you guessed it, dark blue. Black interior. Navigation. The guy went to go look in the computer and he came back and said “nowhere to be found.”
So I am at the point where I don’t know if I should just order car #1 exactly how I want – even insist on the old blue paint (which btw is available on other models, just not my model anymore). Or if I should try for car #4. What should be car #4??? I am starting to wonder if I should give up the sports car dream and go for a truck…..
Here is one we test drove and loved:
So blog readers, should I order car #1 or should I go look at the trucks tomorrow?
