Car Hunt

We are now hunting in earnest for a new car.  We plan to pick up one car here and one car there.  The NM car will likely be mine, and we will pick up something newer for E in NH.  Last Saturday, we packed up Liev and went to the Toyota lot, where E wanted to look around.  He squirmed, and it was hard to look around.  Mom is sitting for us today.

This week Egor found a used 2003 Highlander in great shape.  All his research says this would be the perfect purchase, but I am very skeptical.  The car we looked terrific, but it positively stank.

The former owners were smokers, and the deodorizer they used to remove the smell makes my eyes water.  I want a newer RAV4, but E said it’s not such a good deal.  I hate strong odors, and my car reeking of chemicals is a major deal-breaker for me. But, after several phone calls to the dealer, E assured me that the car would air out fine. There were tears, but a deal was made. Egor promises this will be his car if I can’t adjust to the smell. I also insisted on seat replacements for the cigarette-burned passenger side, and Toyota even threw in new tires. Phew.  Off to google car de-deodorizes!
