So my heart was broken yesterday...kinda.
So thru some negotiating via email I talked the local Toyota dealer down from $30,980 to $26,250 for a 2010 Prius IV (there are 5 levels...IV is ...well only topped by V). It has leather, nav, heated seats...everything but a sunroof. Nice car. I put that on the burner.
I still love the Kia Optima. I found out some bad news...the awesome radio that is based on the same technology as Ford Sync....won't be available until early 2011. Bummer. It's a deal killer for me. If I am going to BUY a car to keep...I gotta be totally happy. So a new car is on hold for a bit. Really bummed. Cue to violins....I'll get the cheese for my wine.
