A New Car!!


Last night we went to test drive some cars we were interested in, and ended up driving away with one! It's a Suzuki XL-7 Luxury edition. It has all wheel drive, 6-CD changer, iPod hook-up, leather seats, front seat warmers, optional 3rd row back seat, and sun roof. It's a 2008 with 13,000 miles. Before us it was a rental car so it was very well taken care of. In fact, Ja's dad thought it was brand new. We never thought of owning a Suzuki, but with all the features you get you can't beat the price.
Going to CARMAX was a very enjoyable experience, I would definitely do it again. The salesman we had wasn't pushy at all and he was very open to showing us many cars. We learned later that they aren't paid commission from the price of the car, but a flat rate. We were grateful for this because he first showed us car that was out of our price range but had no problems showing us a cheaper car. AND CARMAX has a 5-day return policy. If you don't like the car for ANY reason you can return it no questions asked and get your full down payment back. The Manager said he's know some people drive it to Vegas and back to test it out. It doesn't matter how many miles you put on it and you don't have to return it with a full tank of gas. I would recommend CARMAX to everyone.

Okay, the above comment is kind of creepy! Where's the privacy! I had some guy comment on the Jason Chaffetz post a while back! Any way, congrats on the car!

Nice car. Congrats! We may have to look into Carmax down the road when we upgrade to a minivan. Lol, I don't know if I'm ready to be a minivan mom quite yet!
