How about a dream purchase I have in mind?
I have had decent, reliable cars for the whole time I’ve been driving, but I have never chosen a car based purely on what I want in a car.
Practical factors (price! how many people can it carry?) have always been the driving force.
But when I get rid of my minivan one day, I have my eye on an extremely attainable dream car: a Honda Civic with a sunroof (I’ve never had a sunroof before!).
Why a Civic?
- Hondas are super reliable
- Civics are not too small and not too large
- They’re really comfortable to drive
- They get good gas mileage
And even with all of these practical features, a Civic would be by car the nicest-looking car I’ve ever owned.
Mr. FG and my kids are always bemused by the fact that I have set my dream car sights on something as regular as a Civic. But I really think I would be just as happy driving a Civic as I would driving something much more expensive.
For now, my 2012 minivan is fine. But once our nest is a little emptier and our car insurance policy is less populated, I’d really like to own a Civic.
