I love my Buick, even though I take quite a bit of ribbing about driving a ’98 Buick LeSabre.
This year it’s my turn to get a new car. The new Buick LuCerne is really beautiful, but I also like the Toyota Camry, the Lexus 350 and for a brief moment in time I considered a Mustang or Solara convertible.
Here’s the thing – I have a garage full of junk. My husband said I should get a new car in July before I needed to renew my registration, but I needed to clean the garage first. So, I actually started cleaning the garage 2 weeks ago and doing a mighty fine job if you ask me. I threw stuff away. I broke down all the cardboard boxes (I think I have a fetish here…there were an awful lot of carboard boxes!) and then my husband decided to help. He helped by taking the remaining stuff and stacking it against the far wall. Yes, there is room to park a new car, but the clutter-free look I was going for is not happening.
Now, let’s talk about car shopping. My husband is not a haggler. In fact, he HATES buying cars. When he made his recent Honda purchase, he was just going out looking. He went to one showroom and got the car that day. Imagine my surprise. I, however, have a friend who has haggling down to an art. She recently purchased those new windows for her home and saved about $20,000, so, yeah, she’s going car shopping with me.
