Default Well I'm out of the game, but....

Well bad news, Charlotte was traded in yesterday. I'm up in college and left her at home and my folks decided neither my white car or the bonnie are reliable enough. So they offered to trade both of them in to get me a brand new car. I reluctantly agreed because I need reliability for the next 5 years, not 300+ horsepower. That was the hardest decision I've made in a long time (they did give me the option to keep Charlotte). I think I did the right thing because that car was great to have but gave me alot of problems and got too much attention. I'll still be on here because I still LOVE Bonnevilles but next weekend I'll be driving home to pick up one of these:

The one I'm getting is a base model with the I4 but its an 08 with 25 miles on it. I usually don't care for the foreign cars but this was too good to pass up and has an amazing warantee. I know most of you have **** yourselves by now, hell I'm even teering up typing this, but I had to do this from a professional standpoint.

Oh yeah, I've had to get a new transmition(at 38k!!!), pull the dash out to find a water leak, replace a vacuum hose, buy new tires, all in the year that I've owned the thing. We were mostly worried about what might happen next.

Sorry to hear about the problems. Too bad you didn't spring for a 97-99 with low miles instead of the 01, as older SSEi'* seem to have less problems when it comes to the cabin and electronics.

P.*. -Did you get my PM?

Ok we are going to miss Charlotte and all, but this is clearly Not a Bonneville and or a 3800 powered car. which is what our "your ride" section is for.

If I had to drive a Hyundai, I guess it'd be a Sonata. But that is definatly a step in another direction.
