I gotta quit doing this.

For the third time in less than a year, I bought a car. Like trading in my 8 month old 2012 Ram for a Jetta diesel was a necessity, this was too. After 9 years, and 116K miles we had to trade in Katie's 2003 Jetta. I'll spare you all the gory details, but to make a long story short, we were paying the same in repairs, as we would have on a car payment, so we made the decision to do just that, add a second car payment. After rolling a good bit if negative equity over from the truck, we knew we didn't want another new car payment. I tried to talk my self into a Charger R/T, believe me I did. I just couldn't justify the price. We ended up finding a 2007 Jetta GLI with only 41,000 miles on it. The fact that it was limited edition was just a bonus. With out anymore adieu, here she is. I call her The Short Bus.


It even came with $1800 Bilstein coil overs already installed.

I could never get ahead trading vehicles and only buy one when I absolutely have to. If I take one to a dealer, believe me you don't want to be the next owner because it is totally worn out.
