12 years ago I was excited to get my first new car. Back then I thought I’d keep it for a long time, but I didn’t imagine it’d be 12 years!
My green Focus didn’t let me down either. Sure, it had its issues every now and then, and I haven’t had A/C for years as I was too cheap to fix it, but overall it ran well and was pretty reliable.
However, we decided that it’d be better if we traded it in before it left us stranded on the side of the road someday. After all, it was pretty old in car years.
So last Wednesday we traded it for a 2009 Toyota Corolla. Better gas mileage, no rust and A/C. That’s a win all around! Oh and it has no dent in the bumper either.
It’s a bit sad to see my Ford Focus go, but it’s nice to get a car that we won’t have to worry as much about. Plus it’s fun to drive something new.
