Perfect for Seattle, right?!
A year goes by and we get a call from the in-laws that the PT Cruiser broke down….turns out to be the timing belt. We were still making payments on that car so we couldn’t just get them another car. The plus side is the dealer we bought it from would give us a lower pay off if we traded it in there. Downside…..they’re in Texas and we’re in Washington!

So that’s what we did. Crazy thing is I just got a new car the month before. […]
