Our car's been acting funny lately, and when we took it into the shop, they quoted us $800 to fix it. It's 10 years old. This $800 is probably just the first in a long string to come of $800 repairs. So we decided we're going to sell it and go car-free. My husband spent the morning cleaning it, and it'll be listed for sale soon. We have to wait for the vehicle information package from the government before we can list it, and I'm not sure how long that takes to come, but I'm hoping we can have it sold by the end of next week or so. Whee!
Our insurance company quoted us $3000 to insure it for the next year, and I spent several hours shopping around until I found a company that will charge $1700 instead. Guess that was wasted effort!
It's a bad time of year for it, right when the bad weather is about to hit, but we'll manage.
