I did. My first ever new car. I've had a 1993 Chevrolet Suburban for over a decade now, and it's been a decent vehicle; however, in recent months it has started to fall apart. Right now it doesn't even run, there's something blocking coolant intake into the engine and it just overheats in seconds if you actually start the engine. It's also had a rear main seal leak for a couple of years and is in desperate need of some attention. So, while it sits on the sidelines, I had to do something in order to get to work. With that in mind, I thought I'd take a crack at the car I've always wanted to own, just to see if I could get one. And I did. I now own a brand new 2015 Volkswagen Golf TSI S. This exact car: Now I'm quietly terrified about the most pedantic of things. What will I do if I lose my job? What if I can't afford it later on down the road? What if...? I love the car, absolutely love it, but that voice in the back of my head is driving me crazy now .
