The Truth about Company Cars

First of all, I'm very grateful to have a company car, please don't get me wrong. I love that I pay a small amount (about $700-1000) for the personal use of my company car, but I'm irritated with what I've gotten.

I just got a Chevy Uplander. New 2007 model. It has 4 wheels and a steering wheel and an a/c and a radio...um, that's about it. Oh, yeah, and I got seats with seatbelts too, thanks. I almost forgot. I've been with my company for 9+years. We get cars based on an hierarchical system; therefore, I get a level 3 car. At a level 3 you'd think you'd get something nice! I do drive about 35,000+ miles a year, I want some conveniences. But alas, I digress.

Again, I want to reiterate, I am very happy to have a pretty-much-free car. It drives well. It's fine. But it really has nothing to do with me personally. It's an impersonal decision for the company that affects every single day of my working life:) ahh.

No kidding- I'd rather take a 'lesser' vehicle with "more'options! It's not smart on their part- ut glad you got a "fre car"!
