Default somebody slap me

Hopefully I'll be working soon, and with the money I'll be making from that and the odd jobs I do for practically everone I know, I'm thinking of maybe buying another car. So I was getting crappy service at the Chevy dealer so I went to the Ford dealer to look at used cars. I was looking at a Mitsubishi that cought my eye when the salesman called my attention to a Focus. I know, me driving a Ford, crazy, right? It is a tan sedan with tan interior. It has a small dent in the back door and 1/4 panel, like barely noticeable. The salesman said they were asking $9500 for it but they'd had it so long he could easily have me in it for $8000. :o I told him there'* nothing I can do right now, but once I start working I may just talk to my parents and see if we can work something out. Me, in a Ford, it'* crazy, but for some reason I like that car . BTW, it'* a 2005.

Focii aren't bad! I'm considering one, but they're not as powerful as i want in a small car.

How many miles on the Focus? For that price I'd imagine they should be very low.

I can't say I'm a Focus fan at all. Probably not bad on gas though. Probably not even close to being as safe as the Bonne either.

Didn't think to ask the miles on the '05. He said with the automatic it would get about 30 on the highway. The one I fell in love with, though, was an '07 coupe with like 2 hundred something miles on it that someone bought and didn't like *lol* with a 5-speed. He said it would get about 35 on the highway, but I'd never be able to afford the 07.

At this point the only Chryslers I would drive would be either a Stratus R/T coupe, Sebring coupe, or Sebring convertible, preferably with the 3.5 liter.

EDIT, and I get the feeling Canadicut (did I spell it right?) may be kinda a long trip for a car, lol.

The 3.5 liters only come in the new Sebrings and you can't afford those...so you need to buy my Sebring.

Just kidding, I'll probably end up trading it for my next Bonne since I can't really sell it yet anyway.

Really? I thought you could get the 2.7 and the 3.5 in the older ones. I wish I could afford a new Sebring, local Dodge dealer has a silver one with black leather interior and my name written all over it .

I don't like the look of the new ones unfortunately. I like the look of my year the best.

And yes, the 2.4 and 2.7 were the only ones available. The 3.5 is a first with the new ones. Some Stratus' came with a 3.0, but I don't think any Sebrings did. Just the junky 2.7. That'* why I chose the 4 banger.
