I Got A Car, 2.0

2011_chevrolet_camaro_coupe_ls_fq_oem_1_500-1My Mazda 3 and I were in an accident in January 2013 — not my fault I should add. I went through the other person’s insurance and on their recommendation took it to Caliber Collision Body Shop. After about, 6 days, I was informed that the body damage had been repaired but they needed to see me before they could release my car. When I arrived, Caliber explained to me that my Mazda had major underlying issues (not from the accident). Issues ranging from strut damage, leaking shocks, botched tire alignment, no tire tread on 3 tires, and more. The estimate to bring the car up to code was well over $3,500.

After hearing that news and knowing that matched what the car was worth, I figured with the same money I could put up a nice down payment on a new car. A new car with magical features such as: keyless entry, power windows/locks, MX radio, OnStar, tire pressure sensors, tinted windows, and more. Features I have been without for over 3 years. So the hunt began.

I came across a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 3.6L V6 automatic in silver. The day I went to test drive it was the day I bought it. To make things even better, I got great financing — so good, my monthly car payment only went up $20 a month (compared to my Mazda’s monthly payment). $20 extra per month for all the magical creature comfort features — totally worth it! Not to mention it’s also a really good looking car.
