It Was Time
Today we did something that we've been talking about for a while. We sold Mac's car. It was a Mazda MX5 also known as a Miata. It was a cutie, but we just never drove it. It was a 2010 and it had a bit over 13,000 miles on it which means we were averaging a bit over 1800 miles a year on it or a bit over a 100 miles a month. And considering that we live nearly 10 miles from town it's easy to see that we weren't driving it much. In fact it was starting to have problems from just sitting around and not being driven. So we made the smart choice and sold it, sold it back to Mazda. We'd planned on selling it to CarMax a national company that buys used cars, but we had to have a valve fixed on it first (something caused by it not being driven enough) before we could sell it. When we told Mazda what we were doing (that's where we were having the work done) they offered to buy it from us and take care of the repair, and considering the repair was going to cost $700 their offer was more than fair. So now we have one car, mine and my auto insurance is much cheaper. I'm very happy and Mac will no longer feel guilty about the car just sitting in the garage.
