Last December I bought a new car
a Ford Escape
that is only the 7th car I have bought
my first car at age 18 was a Datsun
then I saved my money and bought myself a 1976 Camaro
Next up was a Ford Bronco II
then 3 kids later.....had to go with the mini van
I drove that mini van for 10 years.
When we had to get a new vehicle, Johnny at first wanted
another mini van. I did not
So he bought me a Ford Expedition
I called her the MacDaddy! Loved the Expedition
I could haul a whole pile of kids around
I drove that for 10 years and then bought my Pontiac
G6 GT hard top convertible.
loved it and drove it for 7 years.
Then comes December 2015. I wanted a crossover and the
one I really wanted was the Kia Sorento. But when we went to
the dealership they were not willing to work a deal
The Sorento was fast becoming one of the top rated crossovers
so they just were not offering a lot
we stood our ground and walked out
then went to the Ford dealership and settled on the Ford Escape.
I say "settled" only because it wasn't really what I wanted
It's a great car with some really cool features but it felt small
to me....I wanted one with more room
In August they were offering some rebates on the Kia Sorento
but I had only had the Escape 8 months. Johnny said well, all we
can do is see what they will offer. So we go, I find one I want, they
tell us the price, great price....BUT, will they give us payoff on the
Escape. At first they said no but when they realized we were willing
to walk away, they agreed to payoff.
and now I have what I really wanted.....the Kia Sorento.
we love it!
