Out with the Old, In with the New (Car)

Old and New CarsAfter 10 good years, I’ve finally parted ways with my Saturn wagon. The photo shows the old Saturn and new Prius as we make the sale in the parking lot of Sam’s.

The supply for Priuses is just catching up with demand around here. You can regularly find them in stock at dealerships, but the dealers are still expecting MSRP for them. We got a little bit of a discount (and delivery) by going through the AAA buying service. Not perfect for buying a car in limited supply, since they’re set-up to go find the car you want right then instead of monitoring supply until a perfect match becomes available.

Gas mileage? So far we’re getting about 50 highway and 35 city. Oh, and I did keep the FORTH GO license plate.

One thought on “Out with the Old, In with the New (Car)”

  1. Congratulations and good luck with the *new* car! I wonder if you’ll keep track of the expenses to get the true cost per mile. I wonder how repairs are done on them…
