At first the Mister figured we'd used the car for a couple years and then trade it in. At that point we were looking at cars that had roughly 50,000-70,000 km on it. Truthfully I never wanted a car with high mileage, so I convinced the Mister to get a car that had a much lower number. I found an ad for a car with roughly 14,000km on it. The thought of driving a car with lower mileage made me feel so much better. After some discussion, we both agreed that we would keep the car for at least 5 years for it to be worth to purchase.
I emailed the dealership and exchanged emails with a specialist. After obtaining some information and insight into the car history, I saw on their website that they had increased the car's price by $3000. The Mister called and asked him about it. He told him that at the time of viewing, the car was under some sort of promotion. Thankfully the Mister managed to get the specialist to bring down the price to the original price I first saw it listed at.
Then I emailed him again and managed to get him to drop the price down by $2000 (yasss!!!). That same day (Saturday) I got off work at 5 and got a text from the Mister informing me that he was in town. I immediately told him that it was "now or never" to go downtown and see the car before we decide to purchase. It was literally the only time we could do it because he's in and out of town during the week and I work hours that doesn't always coincide with dealership's open hours. So, just in a couple hours we were downtown viewing the car.
And lastly, I wanted to share this insightful video of a man's view of the world after spending most of his life in jail.
