My son bought his first car!

September 5th, 2016 at 01:33 pm

My son put a deposit on his first car yesterday. He got such a deal! It is a 1997 Chrysler Concorde and is in pristine condition. It has leather seats, and other than minor wear on the driver's seat, it looks brand new inside. For that matter, it looks new outside as well! It has only had two owners. The original owners were older and kept it garaged. The lady we are buying it from bought it for her mother. She put an additional 800 miles on it and could not drive any longer. We took it on a test drive and everything worked beautifully.

We got this car for $985 which was the Kelly Blue Book price for the 1995 model. The lady thought it was a 95, and so we saved at least $300 because of her error. I felt slightly bad about it, but she said it was no problem.

The car even has ALL of the maintenance records. It is also fully loaded. My son is so excited to go pick it up next weekend! He worked so hard to save for a car. I am tickled he ended up with such a deal on his first car (and it was the first car we looked at).

Since he has his permit for a couple more weeks, I had to wait until DH was available to drive with me to go get it; hence the wait.
