My name is Kristen and I am hoping to purchase my first 'on my own' car soon - a 2003 Dodge Neon. I have several steps to take before I make the commitment and have been doing extensive research to be sure that is not a bad experience.
Yes, I am too old to finally be buying my own car (I have 2 grown children!), but I have always had a husband (ex's don't help ex-wives with car purchases
, not that I would want his help
, sadly he hates me and might decide to put a bomb on it before I try to drive it off the lot!) or my dad to help me with the technical part of car purchases. I do still have my dad available for his opinion and insight, but I know that I need to learn to do this on my own... he won't be around forever either
Anyways, so I found the Allpar website and am so impressed!! I shared the link with my dad and he has found it quite informational as well. Needless to say, I decided that joining the forum is the next logical step so that I can see what else might be going on 'inside' that I might need to know. Great to meet you all, and hope I'm not too much of a 'car-tard' to be here.
