$1911.00 would buy The Good Car Guy and Girl a hotel and car for the Christmas holidays in Aspen. The Wildwood Lodge is close to some major ski areas, plus Hertz would give us an economy car.

Or….. $2,445 of my dollars could be thrown at the Aspen options sheet. That’s Chrysler Aspen; not Aspen, Colorado. It’s the Signature Series, including MyGig, sunroof, rear backup camera, chromed wheels, two-tone leather on the seats and steering wheel, and satellite radio.

This $2,445 is on top of the 34K you’ve already spent. I think I’d take Aspen, rather than Aspen Signature Series. For those of you who plan to purchase this new Chrysler, think seriously about saving some money while gaining a vacation.
