Also, I am not talking about a full size fridge. We are thinking of getting one of those small "college dorm" type of refrigerators to put in our basement to keep some extra water bottles, soda cans, beer cans, etc. nice and cold, because in the Summer we go through alot of beverages.
Our local "P.C. Richard" store has a nice "Avanti" 3.3. cubic foot for sale right now for $124. That's pretty cheap considering that Wally-Mart has the same size "Black and Decker" for $168, and Target has a smaller 3.1 cubic foot one for $139.
Anyway, on the box it specifically says "Do NOT lay refrigerator down on it's side! KEEP UPRIGHT AT ALL TIMES!!". The problem is, we don't have a truck, so laying it flat on the seat would be the only option of getting it home in our small Chevy Cavalier!!!! Would laying it flat for a 20 minute drive home, really damage the fridge? It's to tall to stand it up on the seat, so without spending extra money to rent a truck, or pay for delivery, laying it down in the car is the only way to get it home.
