Well, no, not really. But when I thought about my car being dead, that was the music that came to mind.
That, and rattle and hum.
My car, it is no more, it has ceased to be, it has expired and gone to meet it’s maker.
Well, not literally. If we took that literally, well, I dunno where they were making Chevy Malibus in 2000, but I’m certainly not hauling the dodgy thing back there.
Wouldn’t that be fun, though.
‘Where you off to, John?”
“My car is dead. I’m taking it back to meet it’s maker.”
At the dealership; “It’s alive! ALIVE!”
“Just a plugged fuel line. That’ll be $500, bub.”
My car is dead, and we are quickly looking at options for a replacement.
My criteria; Not new, but no older than 2009. Fuel efficient. Low mileage, average about 15k miles per year max. Fuel efficient. Cheapest we can find in nice shape. Able to fit a big bear butt in the driver seat.
So far, just browsing the internet, we’re fidning reasonable deals on Kia Rios and what is looking like my personal favorite at the moment, the 2010 Hyundai Elantra GLS.
We’re going to look at an Elantra tomorrow, but I was curious what suggestions or thoughts any of you folks might have.
Anyone doing any car hunting on a budget lately?
