Welllll....we bit the bullet. I had an 05 Honda Civic with 180,000 miles on it and I commute 120 miles a day for work . The car had $7500 worth of damage done by a deer to the front end when it was two months old and then in October of 2010 I was rear ended doing another $4500 worth of damage. So my $10,000 civic has had $12,000 worth of work done to it lol. It now needs new tires, timing, oxygen sensor....It doesn't owe us anything at this point. It has done us well though so I can't complain. So we went and purchased a new car however I am just not looking forward to car payments as the Civic was paid off in 2009....sigh it is what it is I guess lol We bought a Dodge Avenger and it is in my favorite color-orange!!! I will post pictures as soon as I pick it up...hopefully tomorrow.
