We have not had a car payment in 11 years. It was time to get a car that was dependable. When Eddie had to tow me home from work one day in August, we decided we needed to just admit we needed to get a new car. We bought it one week before we took it on vacation to North Carolina. We put over 3000 miles on it in less than a month. I guess we broke it in well! I love it and it is more than worth the payment!
