    Haaaaaaaaaaaa...Yes, perplexing and convoluted as they come, my deal is!
    Both vehicles, same color, model, price.
    Only 125 miles and a few accessories (autostart/mud guards) separate the two.

    What you have said here has weighed HEAVILY upon my mind as there is great validity in it.
    I am re-evaluating my decision now...
    I was at peace after making yesterdays decision but now, once again...there is doubt.
    I took the car from Dealer 1 on a nice road test hwy/city and it looked/felt fine.
    Idled so smooth I didn't even know it was running.
    Gotta be honest...my 2012 seems faster but this is definitely smoooooooooooth and I quite like the I.V.T.
    As my good friend Gomer Pyle would say:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5VZjT0JE70

    I used to also have paralysis from decisions like this, but decided a long time ago to just go for it. I used to really agonize over things, wanting to get the absolute best deal, and the best value. I realized that all I was doing was wasting my time and not getting to enjoy things because I'd obsess so much over them that it was inevitable that I'd get buyer's remorse no matter how much I scrutinized things. Some people really like sweating the details though, which is perfectly ok. In the end, you're the one that's paying for it, so ultimately you're the only person that has to be happy.

    What are your favorite features of the new car over your old car? What don't you like about it over your old car (If you had express up windows on your old car, I already see that as something you might not like)? As for it feeling slower, does your car have a "Sport" button? You may try using that, as it holds a lower "gear" longer. Congrats on the new car, oh and pics or it didn't happen.

    Car #2 had a secret map sewn into the passenger seat that leads you to one-eyed Willie's treasure.... (You'll never guess what was on TV a few minutes ago)....

    You've pretty much summed me up here.
    While knowledge is supposed to be power, in my case it is a curse.
    Knowing all the things that can go wrong and subsequently fretting over each and every one.
    They say the devil's in the details but lately the devils in my head.

    Maybe you really don't want a new car.

    Well...anytime my hand goes into my wallet, I do get uncomfortable.
    With 6 new Hyundai and our current 2012 soul under my belt, (and over 100 new & used motorcycles) I think it's fair to say I am able to make a purchase.
    My problem is that thoughts lead to concerns and concerns turn into fears and fears become debilitating "brain lock"
    Do I need therapy. you ask?
    [email protected] answer!
    Trouble is...my track record thoughts-concerns-fears is almost flawless.
    Most time when I'm concerned...there is reason to be.
    All this being said my solution is to leave little as possible to chance and control as much of what I can as possible.
    Hope for the best...prepare for the worst...control what you can...be at peace with what you can not.
    It's the "at peace" part that I still have trouble coping with.
    As my friends tell me all the time "my game is tight" but old age and poor sight have altered that game I am afraid.
    Couple that with me being the consummate bargain hunter/shopper and perhaps you can see where I have become a bit self defeating over time.
    When folks tell me to "think outside the box", I bet they had no idea I would be thinking outside the atmosphere!

    PS: As if I needed a PS here?
    As I sit here typing away, I think I WILL go with dealer #1.
    Though any miles that are not my own makes me uncomfortable perhaps facing my fear is a good thing?
    If I was wrong, I will admit to it.
    If I was right, next time it won't happen again.
    At my age I have always been a creature of habit and those habits have kept me (and others) safe over the years.
    It's a brave new world out there and perhaps I'm just having trouble keeping up with the changes.
    This dealer really has done most everything they can to satisfy me considering the rocky start and after all...the car Is brand new.
    It all fades into the woodwork over time so maybe all that is required is a little time to let that happen?
