already got rid of my bonne for other reasons.

next car will be purchased as a family decision between me and my future wife, with the acknowledgment that it will see the birth of our first child, at least.

i see a fuel-efficient 4-door-4-banger in my future

and a motorcycle.

Oh, yeah, the Bonnie stays. (even though I can't seem to keep my foot out of it...lol)

I couldn't afford to buy another car anyway, I need to pay this off and it does its job just fine. If my Bonnie was a piece of junk reaching its end of life, then I'd consider a replacement.

If anything my next car will have a V8. Take that!

I had a Mazda 6 before I found the GXP, and even though it said it had better fuel efficiency, when I started driving it it acutally did worse than the SSEi that it replaced. The GXP is holding it'* own to the SSEi and doubt there would be much that make me get rid of it.
