DN1 (Daughter No. 1 - stole the idea from Buck) finally decided that it was time for a reliable car. The old 1990 had become a real albatross around her neck.
It's a 2006 Kia Sorento. Not new, but new to her, and in really good condition. I told her from now on, when I see her name on my caller ID, I won't cringe, wondering, "what is wrong with her car now".
I've decided to keep the Honda, for a commuter/spare car. I'm sending the old Ford Escort, (not so) affectionally known as the Albino Turd, to the scrapyard. A nice man is coming to haul it away this afternoon. It has been sitting dead in the driveway for about two months now, with some mystery electrical problem that I can't figure out. I can't say I'll miss it.
