Wanda and I finally decided on the new(er) car that we would purchase. After much thought and quite a few trips to different dealerships that sucked up a number of our evenings, we made our decision. It almost seemed like we wasted a lot of time because we ended up picking a car that we've both liked from the start: a Nissan Altima. We actually started there, but went from there to a Nissan Murano, and then to a new Hyundai Sonata, then a new Nissan Altima, then a new Honda Fit, then a 2005 Nissan Maxima, and we finally arrived back at Sid Dillon Nissan and back to the 2007 Nissan Altima Wanda had first spotted on their lot when our adventure began so many weeks ago. We did gain quite a bit of valuable dealership hob-nobbing/test-driving experience from all of the time we spent. After all was said and done, it's fair to say that Wanda is a better hardball player than I. I have a tendancy to ramble ceaselessly on many a mundane topic and she, very tactfully and firmly, kept us out of many a bad decision. So, a salute to Wanda! My wife and negotiator extraordinaire.
Here's a stock photo of our car:
I'll have some pictures of the actual car up soon.
