What's new?

Admittedly, not much. Work is busy and in between running errands here and there, I have seen the relentless Christmas commercials are everywhere now. The lease is up on my Subaru in February 2011, which is good because it's time for me to start saving a bit of money and see what I can buy for a used vehicle next year. I'm aiming low, primarily because the cost of insurance and my needs of a car are much lower than they were before.

I'm figuring, either a 4-year old Honda Civic or a 4-year old Toyota Corolla. Both are fine used cars that will last hundreds of thousands of kilometers if maintained properly. I've been doing my research on Autotrader.ca and Kijijii.  I may even consider getting a car older than that - say 10 years old until I can afford to buy a car with minimal credit requirements.

If anyone has any personal stories on how well their used car fared after 4 years, I would be interested in knowing. Feel free to leave a comment on my blog here. 

Gotta run. Watching a movie called FRAILTY with Bill Paxton. It's about a man who's convinced he is the hands of God's executioner, sent to kill people possessed by demons. Good times....
