The New Addition

Well ... we went sort of a new direction!

We got a 2004 Toyota Camry Solara this evening ... it only had 34K miles on it. Silver with gray leather interior. Moonroof, nice radio, fully loaded, not a scratch on it. One car owner, with a 7 year, 100,000 mile warranty ... I am VERY pleased.

My payment has dropped $175 a month and I'm welcome to pay it off at any time and I just might ... in the next few days I'll take pics and post them here. I'm so proud!

It drives like a dream ... and it was a very pleasant buying experience. I work with a lady who's husband is a fleet manager. I found the car online today- went in, drove it and bought it ... it seemed to take forever, but other than that, a very nice experience ...

I think it's a good car, it will hold it's value and Toyota's are great cars. I'm happy.

Big thanks to Conrad for the help, the support, going with me, etc ... couldn't have done it without you!

I am so glad to have this out of the way. I felt so unsettled with the rent car in the driveway and no car of my own ... and trying so hard to never get a scratch on it. All the worry. I'm hoping this purchase goes a long way to getting things back to normal around here.

congrats! Toyota's are great cars. Good decision on your part not to buy brand new. I have never had a brand new car, just slightly used and therefore we don't have any car payments. Such a better way to go!
