Buying a car


What? Why are talking about buying a car? I was at lunch the other day with some engineers and we got to talking about new cars. I’d mentioned how I had not done a lot of due diligence in the past and planned to make that change next time.

Since I have to rent lots of cars, I get the opportunity to try many different makes and models. Therefore, my plan is to rent a potential new car for say 4-5 days to see if I genuinely like it or not. I mean really, a 20-30 minute test drive to fully see how you like the car? I don’t think so.

When I mentioned that thought, everyone said it would be a really great idea. So I’m sharing with others. If you are going to spend, $15,000, $20,000, $30,000 or more for a new vehicle, why not do a thorough test.

That was it, just wanted to pass some life skills onto others. Now back to the geek.
