Had to buy a new vehicle

I had to buy a new vehicle.I had a 2005 Ford Escape that was becoming a money pit.It has been this way this year for it,had 3 coils go bad in Janaury including both front wheel bearings.Transmission went out in Febuary replaced with a good used transmission.It was on Monday I got the bad news,something in the engine went bad and my wise mechanic Randy told me it was better off buying  another vehicle.Went shopping around and saw a 2011 Chevy Equinox I was interested in from a private seller.Test drove it and had my mechanic check it over,said it was a good vehicle.Purchased it yesterday afternoon and I already transfered the plate off my escape to this one.So far it is has been a great vehicle.I sold the Escape this afternoon to a guy having him signing an as is slip I made out.

I have no idea how DH handles what's going on with his health. He's been diabetic for 21 years and now he has celiac disease. :(

Congrats. We have a money pit of a vehicle too but we've put so much in it would be a massive loss to sell. So for now we fix it.

My Escape ate two alternators also.I am learning about my 2011 Equinox too.Mechanic showed me the oil cap and educated me on the manditory engine oil that has to used only.Uses Dexos oil only,GM voids the warranty on the spot if not used.The oil change is not going to be cheap.

We looked at the equinox once upon a time. Looks like a great car:)

I just bought a new car too! I love it bought a Ford Flex so much more space than squeezing kids and their stuff into a tiny Toyota. Congrats on the purchase
