Car hunt

Elaine is out scouting for a new car. She wants a used Honda Insight. I agree, perfect for her. Now she is looking for a loan. Not easy. It's crazy the way banks operate. They can see that they are covered every which way but still won't approve a loan because of some mysterious thing they call a "credit rating". Anyway, first one denied, but there are others. Worst comes to worst, she can get a loan through a dealer. It will be high interest but she'll have a car.

I so want to see her in an Insight!!

Re: honda!
My current car is a Honda Civic, which I've owned for over three years after buying it used with 140,000 miles on it. When I bought it, one mechanic after another told me I could easily get 300,000 miles on it. I am now up to 220,000 and so in love with this car that I can't quite imagine letting it go.

It isn't just the reliability that appeals to me, although that's huge. It's also the thoughtful design. The designers created these cars for real people, to address real needs. The fold-down rear seats, the hook for the car seat, many other little things that tell me they built this car for the long haul, recognizing our needs. And it's comfortable. I can do the 430 miles to Las Vegas without any real difficulty (except from my knees, which are arthritic and get frozen, which would happen in any car).

My "roommate" lusts after cars that have two seats and lots of power, and motorcycles. He thinks of Hondas as "boring". Not me. Never. I think of him as being in a delayed adolescence.
