I bought this yesterday. My truck is 12 years old, so it was time.
I haven't had a car payment in about nine years, and I am not looking forward to having one now. But I am looking forward to having a car that's a little more modern than my truck. When I bought the truck, the FM cassette deck was the pinnacle of its technology. It didn't even have electric windows.
In a perfect world the new car would have been a Porsche, BMW or Mercedes. Something fun and fast. But we don't live in a perfect world. I drive a long distance to work every day, which is a.) expensive and b.) hard on the environment. I went with a car that minimizes both problems.
It's not much to look at on the outside, but it is a very sophisticated vehicle on the inside. Lots of toys and gadgets to play with. I love having all my music on a USB flash drive and just plugging it in (bye, bye CDs!). The Bluetooth is cool, as are the voice commands, navigation, backup camera . . . it's a lot to take in.
Hopefully it lasts a long time and I am not seen on the freeway with a runaway vehicle, frantically trying to get it to stop.
