New Car

Our old 1995 Ford Mondeo has officially bit the dust. She passed away the Monday before Christmas, may she rest in peace. Of course she was the only car we had, in addition to my husband’s second wife, his Cagiva Elefant.
The photo to the left is a similar model of what our new car will be. We’re buying a 2001 Renault Scenic RXE, automatic transmission (of course ;)) We got a good deal on it, paying about 3,700 Euros for it and it has 76,000 kilometers on it. My husband was doing some checking on the internet, finding basically the same model going for 6,000 Euros. Why did we get such a good deal you ask? Well, the Renault Scenic we’re buying is modified for a handicapped person, with a handles to manage the brake and gas pedals thus harder to sell. Our new car is a dark blue almost black and should HOPEFULLY have possession of it after January 7th, 2008.

  1. Isn't 3,700 Euros a little bit too expensive to pay for a used car with 76,000 kilometers on it and is probably 5 to 6 years old? I say thats a bit expensive for a car like that. What were youre other choices anyways>?

  2. We checked online, and other Renault Scenic’s the same age with MORE kilometers and automatic transmission were going for around 6,000 euros. So we got by cheap with this car, mainly since it’s fitted for a handicapped person.

    Other options, not a lot. We wanted something about this size, and automatic transmission. Automatics, at least in this neck of the woods, are just becoming popular/trendy so one ends up almost paying through the nose for one.
