Good News Keeps Rolling In…
Let me start by saying that I was able to secure an extended warranty for my recently purchased 2005 Jaguar S-Type. We are covered for another 5 years/100,000 miles bumper-to-bumper. So to the few well-intending people who were skeptical and tried to warn me about expensive repairs and that Jags spend a lot of time in the shop, take heart. I’m covered!
I learned that same day that insurance is only $11/month more than the 2009 Sonata we traded in.
Also, after using just over a quarter tank of gas, I’ve found the gas mileage to be the same as our 2007 Sonata!
Good news keeps rolling in, and I have much to be grateful for at this moment! It’s important to recognize this since I was also conflicted over need vs. want. I don’t splurge on much, and this was a dream I never thought possible. I worried about the materialistic aspect, and I still do a bit. However, I did not purchase this brand new. The S-Type has actually been replaced by the XF, and that would set you back about $50,000! My 4-year old Jag only set us back $16,000 before trade, and it did not impact any current financial situation.
I cannot explain how things turned out the way they did. Perhaps it was Karma (CAR-ma)!
