So I ended up having to total my old car after the flood.
I still don’t understand why I didn’t drive mine and my husband’s car away before the flood. We could have taken two separate cars. Saved all three of our vehicles. I didn’t think of that. Of course, I didn’t think that the water would get that high either.
Bought a new to me one, basically same year, same model as my old one but with a bit more features and less mileage.
It was a fight to get this one. My husband wanted to take the insurance money, have me buy a really old grungy one, if one at all, and pocket the rest of the money. This one I lucked in to though. My husband’s boss was selling his old Honda Accord to buy a new Infiniti, so I bought the Accord to give him some extra money to put towards the Infiniti. My husband makes me feel bad about buying the car. I guess I deserve it, but right now we have better things to do than spend our time trying to fix up a car we were counting on being dependable.
