Damn You Koon's!

This past week we had gone to buy a new car. For anyone that has never done so it is a long process and very stressful at points. Our journey started by stopping in and looking one day. We were told to get our down payment together and all papers we would need together for the next day.

We got as much as we could together and went back the next day. We waited ALL day for the guy to finish up other deals he was working on and get to us. Little did we know communications were off. One guy thought we were waiting for stuff the other and we thought we were waiting for him to get done. Needless to say we spent all day there around 8pm when the dealership was closing. We finally life around 2am! We left in a mini van...

How we got the van with having NO kids!-

We had looked at a few cars and dreamed and drolled over them. For me it was an 2009 Vue(I wish) and for Cpl it was the Jeep Wrangler. Both of which way out of a price range! So, we looked at the cars that were with-in the price range. First car was an '06 Grand Prix. We both liked this one up until we were going to take it for a test drive.

First clue we didn't want it was before we could take it out they had to jump the car. Okay maybe it was just an old battery that can be fixed. Then the guy drove it to get gas...I watched as he drove away to see if any noise was coming out of it. Good news no noise. Bad news it started to smoke.

'Cpl please tell me its your smoke not the car!' I said.

'No. Its not mine. What are you talking about?'

'I see smoke coming out of the car.' while looking at the sales man I said this, 'We don't want it now take it to the shop this one isn't ready!'

Alright, on to the next 'HELL NO' car. This one we just flat out said no to... an 2000 Sunfire with 196,000...enough said. Bright side it was cheap as hell!

Last one...the mini van! It ran has less then 100,000 miles and doesn't smoke. WE HAVE A WINNER!
