new car (woot backposting)




Sally has been declared dead by Amica, and they decided to pay me for a new car. Woot I guess... we took advantage of this and got a larger car that can actually accomodate a car seat.  We were mainly looking at the Ford Edge and the Ford Flex.  Both were very roomy, and had the same engine, but the Flex comes with a better interior and 2 extra seats for not much more.  After dealing with two awful dealerships in San Leandro and Livermore, we got the car we wanted at Sunnyvale Ford.  The Flex really is a nice car, but it does get lousy gas mileage (24/17, or 2 more than the Mustang), and sales apparently have been slow.  We were able to get this one for about $800 under invoice, and with all the incentives, we ended up getting it for about $7,000 below sticker, just slightly over $30,000, which was roughly our budget, taking into account the insurance settlement figures.



p.s. writing this 4/17 but will be back-dating this 3/21 (zomg we beat Cal today!), because i can!
