Recently, I shared about how we paid off our car 14 months early.
The process of buying Red the Corolla was full of firsts: first time visiting a dealership, first time taking a test drive and first time negotiating with a salesman.
But Red the Corolla is not my first car.
That distinct honour goes to the Green Beast, a 14-year-old Subaru.
A heavy car, equipped with all-wheel drive and heated seats, the Green Beast drove like a dream, especially in the winter. Sitting behind the wheel, I felt like I could drive through anything.
I loved my first car most of the time.
The rest of the time was spent learning a lot of lessons about car ownership the hard way.
