We're closing on a house in Port Charlotte FL that will be a getaway for long weekends, etc. I was going to drive one of our cars down, but the seller of the house also had a car she wanted to sell. I am the proud owner of a 2003 Saturn L-200 sedan, silver with gray cloth, alloy wheels, cold a/c, no sunroof, 4 cylinder ecotec/automatic, 109k miles. I paid the princely sum of $750 for it. If this car travels more than 1000 miles a yea under my care I'll be amazed. Nice cheap set of wheels...will be garaged when we aren't down there too, so the sun shouldn't hurt it too much.

The son was unhappy because he thought he was finally going to be rid of the old Kia. He was angling for the Jeep, expecting me to get a new car. Joke's on him...he gets to keep driving the Kia.

Put a battery tender on the car when you aren't there.
