So, yesterday I discovered that the Saturn’s breaks were frozen AGAIN (guess that’s what happens when your car is not driven for a month and left to sit outside). Called the tow truck, had it towed to the dealership, asked for a trade-in quote. Was hoping for $4,500. Was offered $3,000 because according to them the car is basically worthless – breaks need replacing, there is rust on the engine, etc, etc. (Yeah, right. I don’t believe them for a moment, but it’s not like I have any choices when I can’t get the car out of their lot without forking out more money, now do I?) We finally agreed on $3,500. I will pick up the check today. Oh well, our own damn fault.
