I'm not sure if I mentioned this already, but about 2 weeks ago, I was sitting at a stop sign right outside of my neighborhood, waiting for a break in traffic, when this lady ran into me. There wasn't much damage, but I still had to put my beloved Jeep in the shop earlier this. Really, it's just more of an inconvenience than anything else.
But let's talk insurance companies and rental cars for a sec.
I drive a 2008 Jeep Commander with a 3rd row seat.
I wasn't the one who caused the accident. Again, I was sitting, completely stopped, at a stop sign. Minding my own business. So why is it that the insurance company will not pay for me to drive an equivalent car to the one that their insured driver wrecked? Why am I now forced to drive this?
Nothing (really) against the Chevy Impala, but I drive an SUV for a reason. And get this - My Jeep will fit in my garage (just barely, but it does fit), but this sedan will not. So now I have to park outside in the elements and defrost my rear window on my drive to work. (Yes, I realize I live in South Texas and that "elements" is a bit of stretch. Work with me.)
AND, it is really hard to drive! It's like a major calf workout just depressing the gas pedal. And it smells. And it's dirty. Why are all rentals cars dirty? Don't they clean those things?? Ugh.
Spoiled much? Yes. Yes I am. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. I love my Jeep. It is the best car I've ever owned. I can't stand to be away from it.
How about you? Are any of you as in love with your cars as I am?
