Goodbye, Hello

I traded in my VW Beetle. It was time. The car was old, piling on the miles, the a/c didn't work, the cruise didn't work, heck, the spedometer didn't even work. It stopped at 65mph, so anything over that was a complete guessing game. Plus, I have decided that a 2-door car is not for me. I am a 4-door kind of girl.

So, here is a picture of me kissing my Beetle goodbye.

I bought a new Saturn Ion. I thought for sure I would be a Volkswagen girl until the end (I had a Jetta before my Beetle). The one thing I really miss is the "flip-out" key. Fellow VW owners, you know what I am talking about. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for VW, but it was time for a change.

Here is my new mode of transportation...

I was so fortunate to get 0% financing with my loan! Oh, and I get free OnStar for one year. Keith and I activated it together. It was really weird to hear the woman talk in my car. I cannot wait to be out of town and call OnStar to ask where the nearest book store, shoe store or coffee house is!!!

it's me, Val said...

Corie, was it hard giving up VW? (I'm so partial, ya know!) I may have to give up on VW all together come Oct. I want to get another, but my pocketbook might not support it since I have to go up (as in, get a bigger car), and the only option there is the Toureg or big honkin' van. I would love the Toureg, but well, you know, money. Anyway, let me know how you handled giving up the VW mentally. I'm not sure I can do it. Ha! :)

Congrats on your new pretty!
