At long last, I signed the papers and committed myself, for better or for worse, to pay large amounts of money for a new vehicle.It took hours and hours in the hot car dealership (with broken air conditioning), but at the end of the day, we drove away in our Nissan Rogue.
Whew! I'm relieved to be done with the researching, test drives, soul searching, and endless conversations with salespeople. I really didn't like the intense focus on buying stuff. And despite feeling sick about such a huge purchase, it's pretty nice to drive a new car!
