As you might have gleaned from one of my posts yesterday, our wrecked Hyundai Elantra was designated as “totaled”. We got word of this on Thursday and were required to return the rental car on Friday. Unfortunately, we haven’t received the money for the car yet–we just got the paperwork for that in the mail yesterday, but we can’t really function with one car, so we went to Blue Knob Auto and bought a new car yesterday.
We ended up with a 2013 Kia Optima. I had a bunch of different makes and models on our list (you need to do that when you’re researching their cars because they go FAST!) but the Optima was at the top of the list because it had less than 1000 miles on it and Kia has a 5 year warranty. We took it for a test drive and liked it, so that was all she wrote! So, basically, it was like getting a new car, but at a couple thousand dollar discount. You can’t beat that.
