Bye bye Honda
Those of you unfortunate enough to know me IRL know of the on going saga I have had concerning a certain Honda dealership. On Tuesday I experienced the final straw which made me decide I was ending my long relationship with Honda (4 CRVs and an Accord estate) and changing my car for a smaller more economical one.
It wasn't a rash decision as I had already done my research to downsize to either a Ka or an Aygo. I went for a look in the Ford garage on Tuesday morning and drove home a shiny new Ka this afternoon. Cheaper insurance, lower petrol costs and £20 road tax. Can't argue with that.
So why have I spent the last 10 mins greeting?? (Shut up BDTP!!!) It's only a box with 4 wheels and an engine to take me from A to B. I've been talking and thinking about the changes in my life for over 7 months, so why am I caught out now they're actually happening? Weird.
So, next thing to do is get a bike rack fitted. And does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get an arthritic Golden Retriever in and out of a Ka??
