No WAY! Do you bounce up and down at traffic lights? Aren't you a couple thousand miles to the west of the lowriders? Does your daughter's head bob up and down??

I blew out a speaker on my other car last fall while listening to "Lowrider" on the way home from work.... :smileysad:

2008 Nissan Xterra...it's a pretty sparkle blue and as a requirement for me, a Manual Transmission!

I can't stand waiting for a car to accelerate, it needs to do it on my own terms!

ANYONE w/ OnStar & BlueTooth capability in their cars:
DD was playing in my Rendezvous a few months after I bought it and to this day I have no idea what she did... but whenever we get in, Miss Automated Voice says "Phone Unavailable"... we have no idea how to make her stop, or what was configured (incompletely!) to make her say that. Ergh! It's a common joke in our car now to say "oh guess what? The phone's unavailable!"
Drives me nuts. If anyone knows, puh-lease let us in on the secret!




Is your vehicle from 2006 or earlier? GM made a major major mistake: until 2006 they sold cars whose On Star depended on the older analog cellphone technology, even though they knew the telcos would soon be turning the analog network off. There is a law firm working on a class-action lawsuit over this. For fairly recent GM products an upgrade to digital costs a couple hundred bucks, but for older GM products there is no fix.

Not at all.  I was going to buy a slighty used Corolla, but they needed to clear the '08s to make way for the early introduction of the '09s.  So I got a new '08 cheaper then I could a used 07 or 06  :smileyvery-happy:

Me: 1993 Toyota Camry, 220k miles, 25 mpg suburban
MrMS has 2 vehicles:  1997 Toyota Corolla and a "monster truck"- Yukon XL.  The Yukon stays parked unless he needs it for towing or hauling tools and wood and stuff around- though, it doesn't get horrible gas mileage for its size- about 18-20 mpg unless we're towing the trailer.
 
I think my poor old Camry will be put out to pasture in the next year or so, and we'll get a Prius (or Aptera if they're available).  Something cool and efficient for a commuter car...
 
Edited to add: I forgot the other vehicle we own... a 14 foot canoe!  Coolest wedding present ever... though it was quite hilarious when we tried to tie it on top of the Corolla.... :smileyvery-happy:
