I love my car, but it took me years to get to a place where I could financially afford it. Prior to purchasing this car brand new, I used to drive an old late 1990s Toyota Camry that sounded like it was going to explode whenever I passed 50 miles per hour on the highway. Despite its age and condition, I got a lot of use out of their old vehicle. It had good gas mileage for its size and weight, which isn’t as light as some of the cars on the road nowadays. It was also extremely cheap to fix and maintain as the parts and components were unbelievably easy to source at affordable rates. The only thing that was somewhat disappointing with that car after a few years of use was the air conditioner inside. I recharged it several times with more coolant, but eventually the leaks in the compressor were simply too much for the ailing cooling system. My new car, which is still on a loan repayment plan, has the best heating and cooling system inside. Aside from the cold air conditioner that makes summer driving a literal breeze, the heating system keeps me comfortably warm when it’s cold outside. This winter has been particularly cold compared to winters in the past. While we usually only have temperatures in the 50s outside, this past week saw highs in the upper 30s while the rest of the country contended with blizzards and high winds. It makes all of the difference in the world having a comfortable car with adequate heating and cooling inside.
