A big thanks to all those who added their comments to yesterday’s post. It’s true, I have not made a decision matrix. And since I’m updating this from an airport, you’ll have to settle for a list of criteria. I’ve ordered them roughly on importance
Let’s do this:
I don’t really have much of a desire for anything else. Hatchbacks, wagons, coupes… Eh. Since part of my search is based on finding something that conveys a professional front I think the sedan is the only way for me.
Nothing before 2008. Nothing with more than 30,000 miles. These criteria might be tough to hold as I play brand games.
I have one, though it’s somewhat fluid
As Nick mentioned in one of yesterday’s comments, this is proving to be tricky. Way more tricky than I had expected actually.
There are a few brands I don’t want to touch. Audi, because of Jesse’s traumatic Audi experiences a few years ago. Suburu for absolutely no reason except that they don’t appeal to me.
6.I don’t want to go crazy
Smetimes I go way overboard with large purchases. I’d like to stay grounded with this decision.
This one is a bit twisted. I want a respectable car but relative to what i have now this will be no challenge. Also, for a company in our industry, there’s a heavy bias amongst our executives towards the car companies with whom we do business. Something I should keep in the back of my mind.
Hopefully that provides some insight to those of you making recommendations. Please keep them coming, its great to get additional feedback. For now, I must board a flight. Speaking of travel, keep an eye out for a new skyline challenge next week per Adam’s request.
