Today is the day I received the Title to my “old” new car. Yes, Mom’s I bought a 1994 Subaru Loyale “Royale”. This is the first car I’ve ever owned the title to. All my other cars have been new and never paid off. There’s something to be said about owning a car that doesn’t have a huge car payment attached every month. I paid $1200 and it’s worth every bit. Now that we live in the frozen tundra of Northern Idaho, we needed a 4Wheel drive or All wheel drive car. I wanted something inexpensive with low miles. This beaute has 118,000 miles on it. That’s really good for the year and make of this car.
Some advise when thinking about purchasing a used car. 1) Always check CarFax. 2) Make sure the car was owned by a GrandMa. 3) Check www.nada.com for the real value of the car. 4) Read the reviews for the car you want to purchase. I know this takes a lot of time out of your day, but it’s worth it. Do it at night when your little angels are asleep. Also, keep in mind the cost of tax. Here in Idaho it’s 6% sales tax. Check your state to find out what that is. Also, keep in mind there are fees for transfer of registration and $5.00 processing fee for registration. These are all costs that can be tacked onto the cost of the car. Of course, don’t tell the seller. You just want to keep this in the back of your mind when you’re negotiation. Oh, and the most important thing…if you’ve got an angel between the ages of 2-5 try to find a sitter when you go to purchase or negotiate. Having our angels around is great but not when we’re talkin’ money. My little guy decided to cry and whine the entire time. I wished I had left him at home with a friend. Be an OWNER not a STONER.
Here’s one review I found for the Snow Master…1994 “Royale” Loyale: Tougher than the little engine that could, and would last forever if maintained properly.
The Snow Master of the North.
