Default Well i'm finally getting over it

Thought I would share with you my tragedy. Decided to get rid of the SSEi for a smaller and cheaper car. The car dealer got the better end of the deal. I ended up going back 7 years and traded straight across for a Subaru wagon If all goes well i'm gonna be selling my jeep and getting another bonneville though as I'm not sure i'm dealing with my loss very well.

why'd you trade a 93 SSEi with only 107K miles for a Suburu Wagon. ?

actually i get about the same mileage except in town and my subaru beats the bonny hands down. Must be my quick take offs and stuff. Considering where I live and stuff it was just a better decision to get something cheaper on gas for the time being. Plus I was wanting to update the bonny and go with something newer. I guarantee i'll be back around with a newer car in less than a year. But for now I still have the old 89 bonny to enjoy. Seems like that car will run forever. It just turned over 239K last week.

In town my bonny was getting about 17-19mpg with a heavy foot. Subie gets about 22
Highway driving the bonny was slightly better but only and I mean only if my foot wasn't in it which hardly never happesn. I needed something to slow me down. As i've had 4 tickets in the past year. Remember the 106 in a 75 in Nevada. Well it won't happen with the subie.
