Over the weekend, I was so tempted to trade my car in for the new Mercedes C class. I was thinking that I’ve had my car for three years, it only has 27,000 miles and in perfect condition. I priced it and the trade-in value could be as hihg as twenty-seven thousand dollars! The new C Class, if I get the basic with no upgrades, will only be thirty two thousand five hundred dollars. That woudl mean that I will only finance, approximately five thousand five hundred dollars. Even if I finance that for two years, I can do it.
The problem was I keep hearing or reading how much it is to maintain a Mercedes Benz. Just tires alone could cost me a bundle let alone engine issues or electrical issues. So, I decided to hold off until I’m sure. I am still keeping an open mind though because I really want to get a Mercedes Benz. In this lifetime, I promised myself that I will get to drive my own Benz – no ifs, ands or buts.
I was checking out their website and boy, the new C Class sure is pretty. It could be my new baby for 2008. I may sound a little too materialistic but I just wanted to taste the fruits of my labor. I have been working since I was 18 and haven’t stopped. It would be nice for me to buy what I want for once. It is not a necessity and it’s not something I need but that is exactly my point.
