Out with the old, in with the new
My car has been on its last leg.. for a while now. This is the first car I got as a surprise when I finally got my license at 18 (yes, 18 because I was a baby and scared to drive) It was a 2013 KIA and it has actually lasted for the past 5 and a half years. Then it started having little problems every here and there. The kids also started messing it up, spilling things on the seats and dirtying up the floorboards.
The next car I was going to have to pay for. My parents were very nice and paid for this 1st car for me, as well as the insurance. If I were to get a new one, I was going to. After searching for a few months for one that was affordable, but also in decent shape, I found one! It was at a Lexus dealership in Austin (but not a Lexus, haha) and I was able to get a good deal on it. I traded in my old car, made some money off that and got a Kia Optima LX. It is a 2018 and only had 25,000 miles on it, which was awesome. My parents had told me to look for something under 40,000 miles, because the less, the better.
I drove up to Austin and got it yesterday and I love it and already have covered my seats and floorboards with towels in preparation for the kids this week.
Also, the people at the dealership clapped for me for purchasing my first car and put this bow on it.
