Why does it have to be so difficult?

Weekend time, and maybe some of you will spend some time looking for a new vehicle this weekend. Not me. I already was doing that during the week. Why does buying a vehicle have to be such a pain? Just when I think I know what I want it turns out that it's not quite right.

Then what IS closer to right for you turns out to cost much more money than you have to spend. Then you start seeing other things that might work instead of what you were looking for in your price range. Confusion and uncertainty...welcome my unwanted friends.

And don't even get me started with wondering if you're getting a fair deal or not.

This whole dance is very troublesome to me. I wish I were one of those rich people that just had someone else buy a car for you, taking all the hassle out of it up front.

One of the cars I was considering was pretty close to what I was looking for, but it's a rear-wheel drive version. At first I thought, "Okay, maybe that won't be so bad." But the more I think about it the more I wonder who am I kidding? I live in Wisconsin. And I know the old-timers will say that's all they ever had back in the day and they did fine. Well, I don't want to live back in the day. I want all four wheels working for me in the snow.

Then I found out that this particular car had been in an accident. I'm not sure about this, but I get the feeling that should be a deal breaker and have me running from this car at this point.

Like I said....why does this all have to be such a chore? The search goes on....
