We Have a Car
January 8th, 2010 by Babs

<div class=\"pavatar\">We Have a Car</div>

Today the dealer dropped off our shiny new (to us) Honda Civic. We were originally planning on getting it registered and picking it up ourselves, however because our dealer is small they don’t have a link with the RMV, so I had to overnight the paperwork to Geico for stamping. Hopefully by Tuesday or Wednesday the car will be on the road.

As I said before it’s a 2000. It’s color is officially Light Teal Pearl. It looks like a cross between a pale sky blue and a light aqua. Very pretty and in very good shape, too. The dealer checked the brakes and decided to replace the front rotors and pads as they looked a little worn to him. They will also be paying for the state inspection. It’ll also pay a visit to my mechanic for a checkup.

I will, personally, be making sure the car is maintained. Glenn promised he would take care of the Taurus but couldn’t even keep up with the oil change schedule. I was reading the maintenance schedule for the car. Although it says to go either by mileage or months — whichever is sooner — I’ll probably have to focus on mileage. The schedule only goes up to 8 years and the car is now 10. :) One of the cool features is that it has a light that comes on every 7,500 miles to remind you that “work” needs to be done.

I can’t wait to get behind the wheel!!!
