2011 Ford Fusion
He’s been searching for several weeks, and he finally found one that met most of his criteria. He had a budget he was working with, and in order to get a newer car with lower miles, he started looking at rebuilt salvage cars.
Buying a salvaged vehicle is a good way to save money, on both the initial purchase price and also on insurance costs (you can only get liability coverage), but it requires the buyer to be especially diligent.
Nicolas carefully researched each vehicle he looked at, finding out what the extent of the damage was, and then he and Tom looked over each car very carefully, inspecting the repair work and checking for short cuts or missing parts. They looked at over a dozen cars in the last couple of weeks, and although a few were “OK” and slightly cheaper, this one was in better shape, had a few more upgrades, and lower miles.
Overall, he decided it was the best deal.
with a little help from his brother,
and Dad’s supervision!
I think he’s pretty happy with his purchase!
We’ve been enjoying some beautiful weather here in Michigan this past week . . . so has the wildlife!
The trees around the pond haven’t started to change color yet,
but it won’t be long now!
We finished off our evening with a little reminder of Glacier National Park
in homemade huckleberry pie bars! YUM!
