So I'm in the process of buying a new to me used car. I hate looking for cars, figuring out to pay for them, researching, all that junk about looking for newer cars. It is just a pet peeve of mine. Any who I don't have much choice seeing as how my car is almost completely dead. :(

I got my car my Oldsmobile Ciera 96' (Green/Gray Color) almost 3 years ago and while I didn't really like it I didn't have much of a say since my Step mom helped me with some on the money till I could pay her back. I was only 19 at the time so I couldn't really afford a loan or anything of that sort. So I got the car and not even 2 weeks later the lights on the outside went completely out over and over again. I finally got that fixed but I had more problems. About a month into the car my exhaust pipe had hole in it and I had to get that repaired. Then in the summer time since I got the car in the winter my air conditioning stopped working. Air conditioning is always nice when you have roll up windows and its really hard to put them down or up on the other sides of the car! So about a year after I had the car I was working late a night and some jerk hit my back driver's side door and that lead to me not being able to open the door ever again. Yeah fantastic! Doesn't that just sound like such a great car? Actually I had gotten a CD player from my ex-boyfriend for one of my birthdays and he installed the CD player and that was one of the only nice things that was in my car. Needless to say I kinda have grown attached to that car even though I secretly hate it and it has a mind of its own (hence the service engine soon light comes on and goes off a day later). I have 181 thousand miles on it and its time for it to part ways with me but I am feeling a little sad about giving it up knowing that this car is just going to go to the junkyard. My dog was sick a few days ago and I was so worried about her that I decided to start my car and drive to the vet hospital for what might be the last time and boy I was emotional driving home thinking that this might be it for the little car. I'm sad and excited at the same thing thinking on a new car and the new possibilities ahead for a newer car but I just can't seem to stop thinking about giving up this car.

Am I crazy or does others feel the same about giving up your car?
