I haven’t purchased a single item from my May wish list because I have been a bit distracted this month working towards a much bigger purchase.
A few months ago, I was at a full stop at a stop sign waiting for an opportunity to make a left turn when an elderly woman turned into my lane and hit my VW Jetta head on. There wasn’t one thing I could have done to avoid the collision and I watched it happen in slow motion. I even honked before she came to close so she would correct her trajectory. This was jut another episode of bad luck in a string of incidences that month. I really just couldn’t catch a break.
After the accident I happened to fall and ended up in a boot and on crutches unable to drive for about a month so I couldn’t get my car to the shop right away. Last month I did make it to the body shop and the insurance company of the woman who hit me deemed my car a total loss.
I legit cried.
My car wasn’t that old and it ran like a dream. I had just had it serviced and bought a brand new battery right before I took it to the shop. It was paid off to boot! Now I’m starting from scratch and getting a new car. I should be more excited about a new car, but given the circumstances it’s just a shame and I hate that my car couldn’t be repaired.
I will be buying new and am getting another Volkswagen. Through all of this mess I have been unsure about everything except the fact that if I had to buy a new car, it would be another VW. After trying out a few different models, I will be getting the VW Golf Alltrack SE.
On the outside it looks a bit like a posh Ford Focus wagon, but on the inside, it’s incredible. It handles like my beloved Jetta, but it has even more power under the hood. I was able to test drive it on the interstate in Charlotte and just plain fell in love.
I had been looking at their larger line of vehicles and test drove the Tiguan, but this wagon caught my eye. It has everything that was on my must have list: all wheel drive, takes regular unleaded gas, automatic transmission, and the back seats fold flat so that more can fit in the vehicle. I had been looking at larger VWs because the one issue I had with my Jetta was that I couldn’t fit furniture or anything with any size to it in the trunk or back seat, even with the seats folded down. I needed something a little bigger and this wagon is perfect. Other features that I love in this car are: incredible sound system, iPhone integration, it still has a CD player, hand brake over electronic emergency brake, different driving modes, sun roof and it handles u-turns like a dream. It’s just an incredible car and pricing starts around only $26,000! It’s an incredible deal for such a quality vehicle.
