The month of auto costs continues to add up but this time, it's a new car! Golf R is being stored off-site for the Winter. I'm welcoming a 2015 Ford Escape to the stable. Base model, 250K miles. Got it for $800. I put an additional $2500 into it (full overhaul of maintenance, tires, insurance, registration, floor mats, wipers, brakes, detailing) and now it's road ready. $105 alignment and we're set for a couple of years!
