Well, after a week and a half of car shopping Oda Momma and I had decided to try and get a "family" vehicle. We had a good price ($6000.00 under invoice), decent warranty and they delivered the car to the dealer on Tuesday. That evening we went to sign the papers and they tried to stick us with 8.5% financing for 72 months! Oda Momma and I have nearly perfect credit. There was NO way we were going to spend that much money on a vehicle. We kindly thanked them and walked out of the dealership.
The next day the sales manager called me to "apologize". Because he and the salesman I had been working with were off that day, my deal didn't go through. He asked me if he could run the numbers again and call me back in 5 minutes. When he did he came back with 6.35% at 60 months with the same monthly payment. I told him I would think about it and that my wife and I were pretty put off by what had happened the night before.
I went back to the dealership a while later and they had my finance charges down to 6.29 and had given me a bumper to bumper 7 year/100,000 mile warranty at cost. I signed the papers and drove Oda Momma to work in Dallas yesterday afternoon in this...
It's a 2007 New-To-Me Nissan Armada. Low milage and lots of little perks. Seats up to 8 passengers. I told Oda Momma that if we should ever be expecting sextuplets we'd be set.
This morning Oda Mae and I went to Sam's to pick up a few things. We had PLENTY of room...
Now we're planning family trips! The first one is Saturday, October 13: we're going to the fair. Feel free to come along!
The next trip we know we'll be going on is a little trek up to South Dakota for USDMAC's graduation in May. Again, anyone who wants to ride with us is welcome.
