11/26 All good things ...
eventually die. OK, so it's not dead. I'm exaggerating a bit but ... my 1999 Hyundai Elantra is in need of replacing. I've been driving for almost 2 years now without a car payment, YAY!!!
I've had almost no trouble at all with this car in the last 7 years (highly recommend Hyundai) but ... it's getting to the age and the mileage (94,000) where things are going to start needing to be replaced.
The A/C went out last week, I had freon added with no guarantee that it would be a permanent solution. (it wasn't). I've got a serious leak and the unit needs to be replaced.
This is not the worst time of year to be without A/C in South Florida (it's actually been little more than an inconvenience not to have it this week). Other than the A/C the car is in perfect running condition and I could probably replace the A/C and drive it another year or so but ... I work hard, I deserve a nice car and I'm on my way out the door to find one. Just need to look up the name and address of the 4 local dealers near me.
I've been in sales all of my life so my negotiating skills are fairly sharp. I've included a copy of the notes I'm taking with me, let me know if I've forgotten anything.
Happy Saturday all.
