okay, so now that i’m over the whole getting my car bashed up thing, i’m ready to hit stage 2: optimism.
i’m not really ready for a new car. what i’d really like is something like what the honda accord hybrid has, but in an acura TL form factor. but i think those cars (excepting the silly new $60k lexus hybrid) are a few years away still. i don’t think i want to drive a prius — just a little too small at this point for me.
so now i’m starting to think about buying a new car — don’t really have anything i’m totally excited about, though.
so what should i do?
– buy some other approximately-22 mpg-getting-sedan from europe or japan & keep it for 8 years like i keep most of my cars
– lease one of those for like 3 years and buy something i’m more excited about in 2009
– buy an accord hybrid for kathy & drive her 2002 TL for a few years
– something else entirely
