Suzanne Thinking New Car, Again

Actually, it’s not as bad as the title might lead you to believe. She is thinking about doing this for a good reason. Normally, its me that wants the new car. 😉 About 18 months ago, we both bought ourselves new cars. I got a very nice Mercedes Benz E350 and she got a nice […]

Mercedes Benz Concept Car

I was surfing the net the other day looking for what the new Mercedes Benz concept cars might look like. I found a bunch of concept cars that looked “typical”, but one caught my eye. Now, I havent found anything from Mercedes Benz on this car, so I dont know how real it is, but […]

Radio Reception in the Mercedes

My Mercedes Benz continues to be an excellent purchase. However, all is not perfect. The radio reception in the Mercedes tends to be very poor when I get near the Sonoita area. Now, I am a good distance from the nearest town and thus radio tower, but every previous car (4) I have owned while […]

Mercedes Benz Pictures Uploaded

I have finally uploaded a few pictures of our new 2006 Mercedes Benz E350. When Suzanne returns from her annual trek to Dallas, I will try to get some of the new 2006 Volvo XC90 uploaded too.

So Far, So Good

Today is day four of my summer bachelor time and so far, its been great. Well, it’s been pretty good anyways. As luck would have it, I have ended up late at work each night this week, so “my time” has been more limited than I had hoped. In addition, its rained every night this […]

Even Better Deal on the Mercedes

Despite my previous post on how well the Mercedes Benz buying experience went, it wasnt all pleasant. A day or two before purchasing, I had sent my Brother-in-Law Tim an email asking him if he, as a Daimler Chrysler employee, could get me an employee discount on the Mercedes. I had asked the same question […]

2 New Cars

Well, its been a very good Memorial Day Weekend thus far. We have been considering for some time getting a new vehicle. Heading into this weekend, we owned a 1997 Expedition (with 165K miles), a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado (with 75K miles) and a 2004 Volvo S60 (with 45K miles). Both the Expedition and Silverado were […]
