For nearly the last 20 years due to being married, having kids etc. etc. while I have made the lions share of the family income somehow I always ended up taking it in the seat when it came to what car I ended up driving on a daily basis because I worked from home. For some reason my ex thought that since she had to drive to work (2 miles) everyday, she should drive the nicer car which always left me with whatever was left. For many years it was a 99 Isuzu Rodeo (which I actually really liked but that's beside the point). After the divorce I ended up with a car that my mother gave me originally intended for my teenage daughter, who I decided needed to learn a life lesson after putting me on the spot when I was still getting back on my feet, a 2006 Honda Civic that for some decided to pretty much fall apart after I took possession of it. So after driving the noisy, paint peeling, AC hardly working, headliner falling down hand me down, I finally decided to go out and get a "new to me" car that I ACTUALLY PICKED OUT AND WANTED!!! So for the first time in a very long time I have a car that I am actually somewhat proud of:
Its a 2013 VW Sportwagen S. Has the 2.5L. I may be adding wheels and tires shortly to make it look a little more sporty, but right now just enjoying turning the AC on high and freezing my butt off!!
TL/DR: I got a new car that I am kinda proud of.
