Mark, are you talking about a brand new car or used? I like that process as you described. The last time we went to the dealership that had a car we wanted to look at, they bothered us for darn near a month.

Kwak, the Traverse has about 125k miles on it and still runs great. Just bought new carpets for it. I do take very good care if it maintenance wise. I hope to get 2 more years at least out if it. I walked into the dealership unannounced, saw pretty much the exact car I wanted and in 20 minutes started the paperwork and picked it up the next morning. Must have been the easiest sale that guy ever made.

New cars TT3. Dealerships just want to push what is on their lots. They will haggle more with them. When they search the reginal depots they can't wiggle as much but you pretty much get the exact car you want as far as trim levels, color, rim style, ect.

Good morning! Guys weekend here. Good news, the dogs did not bark to go out until 8:20. Bad news, the boy had football practice at 8:45. He made it.

Good morning and yet again! In bed by 11:00 and dogs slept until 8:00 again! Off to Mass and then I button up my gym project. New equipment was delivered and I have to finish assembly.

We have a 2013 Travest with 68,000 miles, no major problems so far, bought new tires and brakes but nothing else has needed to be repaired.

Big morning in our household. Oldest kids move into his dorm room this afternoon. For some unknown reason, his school started a week later than normal this year. We leave in a few hours.

Gym! Fixed. I must have gotten too much sleep last night.

Good morning. My little vectors are in two different classrooms, now and are bringing us even more pathogens than usual. So in addition to dealing with one or the other getting up at 1-3am, my wife and I were both sick with a mini-flu this weekend.

The pre-school plague continues...
