They ARE a car dealership, even if they want you to think they are something new and different because you do most of the process online. They aren’t.
Yep - I have a Chevy Sonic hatchback too. I coach soccer and everything fits just fine. Mine is a 2016 1.8L with 137K on it. I put Michelin Defenders on it and it’s nice and quiet. It has a few cooling system issues at the moment that I need to sort out, but overall, it’s been great.
Good luck to her, hope she finds something reliable and reasonable.
Every few weeks I’ll see what the money in my “new car fund” will buy me. It’s up to about 6k and the market in that range is just abysmal — there’s a guy trying to sell a 2013 Subaru that’s burning a quart of oil every thousand miles for $5500 “firm”. The rest of it’s just 2004-2008 hondas with 200k plus on the clock.
I’m going to say air conditioned seats. I had a rental with them in Northern Minnesota in December and still thought they were the bee’s knees. I could only imagine how good they would feel in swampy summer. Read more
Counterpoint. Had a rental with A/C seats in the summer in the South. Sounded like a good idea. But there was 40k+ of miles of people driving a car with black leather seats in the Deep south. Read more
Western Montana - beautiful. Mountains, Glacier National Park, very cool. Eastern Montana is the Dakotas without the charm...
As someone who (re)learned how to drive stick in Seattle and fully learned how to do hill starts here as well, I agree the hills are not really an issue. If they have to deal with sitting in traffic, though, I completely get it. Read more
I believe it. It doesn’t pay to cook for one. Even if someone is inclined to cook for themselves you’re quickly confronted with the economics of either eating the same leftovers for a few days (which can be a drag on your appetite), because most portions of fresh food in the grocery store are sized to accommodate a… Read more
Even though I am not a black man, the advertisements for the company Bevel got my attention. I have thick, wiry, curly beard hair that tends to get ingrown - especially on my neck. I started shaving with this razor and I’m all good now. Read more
My inner cook would have had to go with Flandango, but still, well done
Tom Cruise is speaking to the audience when he says “If you think, you’re dead.”
The other benefit is having cheap knives for when other people visit and might use your kitchen. It’s not super common for some people, but I’ve had guests try and put my good knives in the dishwasher (or just leave them in the sink) way too many times that often, I just kind of put them away and pull out some Kuhn… Read more
I’ve never understood the people who leap out of their seat the second the bell dings. It’s going to be another five minutes, just chill in your seat doing whatever you were doing. Reminds me of people who pick their way through heavy traffic one car at a time, as if they’re going anywhere.
This is the most 90's kid thing ever. It shows a true mastery of the technology of the day.
This is my kind of galaxy-brain problem solving. Kudos to you, my good fellow!
