I mentioned before that my 2001 Ford Focus [picture above] broke down around end of May few days after my birthday. Since husband went to a whole month of training out of state in June, he did not check on the car until he got back in July. Early last month he fix the car and changed some parts, but still there's white smoke coming out of the exhaust. When he checked it again, he has to replaced cylinder heads or pistons. This means he has to take out the whole engine to do it.
Because of the nature of damage, we decided to get another vehicle for me. Vehicle is a necessity here. Hubby needs his truck to go to work and I need a vehicle to do errands and bring the kids to their appointments and school as well. By 2nd week of July we went to the dealership and luckily found one that fits me. We got a 5-seater 2007 Kia Rondo. I haven't heard of a Rondo until I saw it on the website of the dealership that we went to. It's a mini-SUV. When I tried it, I thought it's perfect for me. I am very petite and I don't need a big vehicle to drive. The Rondo was on special price and the good thing was it only has 56,000 miles on it. It's red and in very good condition. The first owner really took care of it. The only thing we add on it before bringing it home was tinting the widows a little bit since it was too clear. I don't have a picture of it yet but will soon share one when I can.
We asked the dealership how much they will take of our car to trade, and they priced very low as it has an engine problem. So we decided not to trade the car anymore and hubby will just fix it. Now we have three vehicles and we'll see of what we can do with it when it's all fixed and done.
