I did much of the research through the BBB (not the Bed Bath and Beyond!
) and discovered the reputable dealership. DA, Gwen, and I went to it this morning. I told the man what we desired but they did not have the C-Max like the rented car.
But he found the exact car in a dealership in South Carolina. The man said he could do the courtesy trade for the car we want. So, our C-Max will be arriving at 3:00pm. We came to home for lunch, then Gwen followed me to the rental agency to return the rented C-Max. She will take us back to the dealership then.
I called the insurance agency to discuss the insurance rates. They have the different levels of rates and DA advised me to get all the coverages, the most expensive rates. She told me it is best to do this with the new car and the new driver such as me.
The C-Max we will be receiving is a little bit used. It is white with 6,000 miles of use. It was this "demo" car. A "demo" car at the dealership is the car they give to the people when their own car is becoming serviced. I do like this advantage of the miles being used. There are the things called "bugs" sometimes in the new cars which occur in the first miles of the use. This C-Max is the much less expensive than the new cars because of the use.
I am able to call the insurance agency of the car and tell the VIN (that is the Vehicle Identification Number) and the other information of the car and the credit card number to them. Then I will drive it to home. I am missing of two classes today but the university knows of the situation with attending to DA.
DA wishes to ride up into the mountains when we receive the car. She can not see them but she loves the "feel" of the mountains and the smelling of the fresh air.
And there are the rules of the car. I am not to have the classmates in the car yet until I become more experienced of the driving. DA and Mamma shall judge the time of the rule. I have ridden in the classmate's car and I do not like that. They make too much of the noise and they like the bad music, and it is very loud.
I must not use the phone while I am driving. For me it is the sensible idea. People on the phones in the cars crash into the others. That is a terrible thing.
I must go now. I hope everyone has the very good day!
