Yes, I know that the brand has a horrible track record. I also know that I drove the car for two weeks on a loan, and it works well enough for my needs, and after a series of "cool" (according to dear hubby) cars which break down, get crashed into or try to eat my legs as I get in, well enough is good enough.
It's a blessing to have a car to travel farther than I can walk or want to ride my bike or carry on my back or in the bike's basket. When I need it. I've been without a car at will for nearly two years now, and it's nice to have one again.
What really decided it for me is that now I have a way to get to the doctor's appointments I need to make without throwing the other household drivers into a tailspin trying to get me there & back.
Oh, and I can go visit my favorite fabric store when I feel like it, too.
Independence is a lovely thing.
