My husband and I walked into the Honda dealership today, signed a few papers and came home with a shiny new CR-V. It seems kind of odd that it should be so easy to spend twenty grand. In reality, it wasn't that easy as I've been fussing over it for months - spending that much money makes me very nervous!
I decided on a lease and am trying to figure out if I got a good deal or not. My monthly payments will be the same on this car as on the Civic that I financed 8 years ago. I put more than half down on that car, but this one cost a few thousand more, so I can't quite get how the payments are the same. I know I didn't get enough for the trade in of my Civic, but I haggled as much as I could stand to.
Anyway, I like it! I had planned on getting it in a nice sagey green, but the blue was all that was available on the lot. Most importantly, my husband fits comfortably inside and I won't have to watch him folding himself up into the front seat like he had to do with the Civic.
