Got it right. When it rains, it pours.

Our older Kia has had the following things go wrong:

  • Foudn a nail in the front passenger tire's sidewall--typically no big deal, but when I went to change the tire one of the lug nuts snapped off...we got this fixed...

  • A/C does not cool off, except for the morning times when things are typically cooler

  • Brakes don't feel right--they stop fine but just don't seem right

  • And today, decided to put the windows down since it was hot and the A/C is temperaturemental, the rear drive window won't go back up. The motor clunks and that's it...

eep! sounds like it's time for a new car.

Yup.

Rachel and I ended up buying a car this past Tuesday.

We went with the old man style '08 Ford Taurus--which is basically a redesigned Ford 500.

It's weird not driving an SUV sometimes.

yea i've been driving an SUV of some type since 1996. i don't think i could go back to a sedan-type vehicle.

but hey a taurus. those are nice cars! what color?

We chose a gold/champagne one--mostly because of the heat down here and it's what we liked at the time.

The car we traded in was a dark blue/violet color and got insanely hot all the time.
