Wow! Today was a whirlwind of action. I headed downtown to the Toyota dealership and test drove 3 cars and then was offered some deals. Then I was hungry and had some lunch at Whole Foods and thought about going back to Toyota or seeing what Honda had to offer. So I walked up several blocks to the Honda dealership, which was a lot larger.
I initially wanted to check out the Honda Fit, but when I saw it lost interest. So she took me outside to see the Civic and as I got in to the Sedan I started to look at the 2-door next to it and asked, "What's that?" The rest is history.
This was the first time in my life at car shopping and it was certainly an adventure. I do wish someone had come with me to explain all the little details, but I did my best to understand and get things down to a reasonable price.
It's still not entirely final but tomorrow I will go to pick up the car and pay. I got the Honda Civic Coupe in blue.
Even though I am going to lease a car a part of me is going to miss taking the bus and being a city gal that way. But another part of me is going to enjoy just hopping in the car and zipping home.
I suppose there can be some fun road trips ahead of me, maybe a stop up in Vancouver!
Ack...need some sleep!
