MIRACLE...of MIRACLES....I can't even BEGIN to tell you about this...not properly...not so you will even understand the DEPTH to this. But I'll try
#1. 2 years ago I rented a car that I loved....loved....loved....lov
ed ....loved...It was a Nissan Rouge...and I swore one day I would buy one. I loved how I felt like I was in a spaceship...I was high off the ground. My back did NOT hurt when I got out after driving for hours..and so on. BUT as dreams have it...I did NOT HAVE that much money and so....oh well.
#2. Jen being a best friend...took a picture of a BLUE NISSAN ROUGE and gave it to me to put on my wall at work to help me DREAM! (I love blue..but wasn't so loving THAT BLUE)....but still I dreamed.
#3. I knew my car was dying...a year ago my mechanic said you might get 7 months. Well thankfully I got a little longer. BUT STILL...there was no way I could save to get my DREAM CAR
#4. Adam (my brother) - released from the Marines - moved in and because of that I have been able to pay off a few credit cards..and make a huge dent in the others. Getting back on my feet after two years of doctors and medical bills.
#5. Adam decided he had saved enough money at his cool amazing job...to buy a car because his was falling apart. FOR SOME ODD reason I was available to go with him. (that's another whole story I will skip here) He went to a CARMAX ...and I heard all about them...and although I NEVER EVER wanted a USED CAR....I sorta changed my mind hearing how they take care of things...that and their PRICES!
#6. While looking for Adam's car.....I saw some NISSAN ROUGES....and they were actually in my price range....I was shocked....and...sorta excited....thinking " OH MAYBE IN 6 months I can get a car"...
#7. BUT - the NEXT DAY - My car broke down....it would cost approx 1k to fix. AHHH....
So we went back to CARMAX last night to look at those Nissan Rouges.
#8. Adam and I had an apt to drive the Nissan Rouge. The man took us to the car and we couldn't find it. We spent 30 minutes driving and walking all over the lot to find this Nissan....and the MAN listened to me. I was okay with the GRAY NISSAN...it had a sunroof. But I really wanted a BLUE Car. I happened to see a Blue car with a sunroof and he let me sit in it. But it was a Honda and I did not like it at all. Too uncomfortable.
#9. However, since the sales man knew I wanted blue..and we couldn't find my Nissan....he checked his books and said he found a BLUE car...similar to Nissan's...with a sunroof ....We went and looked at it...and I FEEL IN LOVE.
#10. Not only was it BLUE ...with a sunroof....IT WAS CHEAPER than the Nissan.
Oh...as soon as I sat in the Chevy Captiva....another sales rep drove the Nissan right up to us saying "FOUND IT"!! So I drove both the Nissan and the Chevy. The CHEVY was smoother....same odometer reading....same year...2013....same specs. Same gas miles...Same safety. And the CHEVY was more comfortable..more head room...more storage room...The seats warm up.... I could go on.....did I say IT WAS BLUE! A beautiful SKY BLUE..
AND.....The CHEVY gave me the SAME feeling I had ...when I drove that rental.
We inspected BOTH CARS afterwards..side by side....the Gray Nissan...the BLUE Chevy...and the Chevy was just saying...."I"M YOUR CAR......I'M YOUR CAR...I'M YOUR CAR... PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME!!!
So I drove it off the lot!!!
I can't tell you how blessed I feel..and so glad my Nissan was missing for a while...so I could find this other treasure!!
