Maintenance

I love having my own car. I love the fact that it's paid off and still in relatively good condition. I hate the fact that I have to get work done on it. I went in this morning for the 50,000 mile service. Grrrr! An oil change, tire rotation, brake job and fluids replacement later, I'd spent 3 1/2 hours and almost $600!! Yikes! Why can't my car just take care of itself? And to think I was planning to spend even more on it to get the windows tinted! I'm so poor now I'll be eating ramen for dinner for the next month. Sigh.

Booooo. I can't believe it was that expensive!

I am completely jealous that you have your car paid off and only 50,000 miles on it!

After getting ripped off buying my last used car, I learned the trick of getting a really, really great deal on a car. I think I got it for about $6000 less than MSRP. Also, I can't stand to have debt (other than mortgage and law school loans, which will never go away), so I killed my savings to pay it off.
