When I think about the upcoming United School levy, this analogy always comes to my mind.
My car is 9 years old, it's in pretty good shape, and even with 100,000 miles on it, there is still a lot of life left. I fix things as they occur; but there are things, which over time, will make replacing it not only necessary but the smartest and cheapest action to take.
Having recently had this conversation with a friend, I was asked, "What would you buy?" I would buy one the same or similar to the the one I have now. I would look for something with more seating and storage. Having heating for all occupants would be appreciated. Of course, it would come with more computer generated options, but they help to make your trips easier, more gas efficient, and a lot safer for those in and outside the vehicle.
And so, if someone offered me a 2012 replacement of my car and said there was a legitimate program whereby I would only have to pay approximately 23 percent ... you can be sure I would be driving a new car home.
You do the math.
