Money Roundup: Buying a New Car Edition

by Michael on Feb 15, 2014

As I mentioned when I wrote about insuring a new car, we’ve been car shopping over the past few weeks. After a lot of test drives and an equal amount of thought, we ultimately decided to get a new 2014 Toyota Highlander.

We actually found the specific car that we wanted and settled on a price (via e-mail and phone) on Monday. Thanks to the weather, however, we weren’t able to make it to the dealer to inspect and purchase it until Friday.

Consistent with the view that the best deals can often be found out in the boonies, we ended up buying from a dealer about 100 miles away. So, for us, Valentine’s Day was spent driving to/from a distant car dealer and buying a new car.

Based on the relatively limited driving that I’ve done since all I can say is… Wow, what a great vehicle. I know it’s early, but I’m very happy with our choice.

And now… Here are some articles that caught my eye this past week:

That’s it. I hope you’re having a great weekend.
