I love my car - my sweet CR-V, but it's getting old... and it's having issues...

#1 loves his car, but it's getting old and it had a big old nasty issue...  His clutch gave out on the highway yesterday. (All are safe and well.) We had the 1990 Camry towed to the fixit.  It will be more than $900 to get it fixed, but the car is worth it.  It only has about 70k miles on it.

My car, on the other hand, has more than 177k miles on it and they want $2,000 to attempt to maybe fix it.  I'd rather fix it and let my LLB drive it, but $2,000 for a "maybe it will work" is almost too much to risk.  They think that my issue might be the catalytic converter disintegrating.  Oh yay... not!

I've been researching cars and done a bit of car shopping.  I will be purchasing a new CR-V.
I am SURE that the best pricing is happening now - as in today... I am also SURE that when Mr. finally decides that we need to purchase the new car (next month or in May) that there will be no bargains... As is what happened last time I needed to purchase a car.

Alas, this is the way things go and it makes me crazy!

sounds like you need to just go get the car yourself. Hugs! At least you won't have to wait for a POA to do it. ;o)

I hope your new car has a great deal, but this is a lousy time for car issues. Hugs!

We just got a new one for Don...the old softball van had over 200k on it.

We moms can put the miles on our cars can't we?
