The Mrs. and I bought a car today - a 2008 Dodge Caliber.
The car dealership really gave us a runaround - after being approved for financing, they threw us a curveball and raised our monthly payments by $150 a month. That cause a real issue, so we went to the dealership and basically told them that we weren't interested. The salesman tried to tell us as well that we would default on our deposit if we didn't take the car.
Anyhow, cooler heads prevailed, and we were able to get a better price on the car. Of course, our detailer friend noticed some really bad cleaning and detailing work, which we will deal with at another time.
This is the big prize, the one we've been waiting four years for ... it's Germany and Sweden in an all-Aryan World Cup final! I'd like to see Sweden take it, but there is a strict rule in football -- never bet against Germany.
