Nice!  Enjoy your new wheels!
 
Now if only we could get MTV to pimp your ride!   :hahaha:

I don't think I'd want them to pimp my "new" ride, or even my old ride. It's just stealable bling. I didn't even want power windows for cryin' out loud. I miss my crank, lol.
 
Christian, I don't know what the fuel economy is yet, since I've only had it for about a week. The EPA rating is 47/48, although they are currently renewing those for all cars, which brings everyone's numbers down to compensate for "real world" conditions.
I'll let you know when I have to fill the tank for the first time. So far I've only used about a quarter of a tank. There's this guage on the dash where I can see the instantaneous mpg. Depending on what sort of driving you are doing, it shows anything from 30 mpg while doing something like accelerating up a hill, to 140 mpg while coasting. So it'll come down to the law of averages, and learning how to drive it efficiently. I'll let you know how that first tank averages out.

i wish i had your car DWG...i just got my permit (lets not talk about it..my fear of the road is high and today i almost hit a escalade....seriously... ALMOST)
 
anywho....my sister somehoe late last year talked my dad into letting her get (with his help) a 2007 ford focus....and here i am...w/her piece of shit 96 neon.....
 
 
everything in the world is wrong with it.....water pump leaks....it has too much oil...the battery died on pirate day ( and forced ME to buy a new one for it)...it needs new tires (the car shakes when it hits 35mph)....and no power windows.....i don't like cranking when the AC doesn't work as well....

Nope, I also test-drove a 2005 Honda Civic that had "crank windows". I was like, "woot! Cranks!" They are so liberating...passengers can open their windows without having to beg the driver, "Can you leave the keys in the car while you go into the 7-11 so we can breathe??". I've always hated when my husband would leave us in his SUV and take the keys into...wherever...and we couldn't open the windows. I always had to open the door to breathe.  Roll Eyes
Now I have to remember to close the windows on my newer car before turning it off. I find myself turning the car off, then noticing the window is open, and having to turn the car back on...gimme my crank any day. Oh, well...compromises.
 
Kristyn! We were just wondering today if you'd started learning to drive yet. Congrats, and don't be too afraid. That's counter-productive. Be careful, be defensive, pay attention to everything around you, but try not to be too afraid. Good luck to you.
Get that car looked at though. I think it may need more than just new tires; have the front end aligned too. Jeez.

Aww...be careful Kris.
 
I suppose if you choose to live in a city with a good transit system you could get along without a car.  
 
I wish I could ride a bike to work, but I get out at midnight...too dangerous.

Honey, don't do that to yourself!  Do you want to turn into my mother in law, who's afraid to drive and has to rely on other people to get anywhere?!  No.  Trust me, no, you don't!  With more practice behind the wheel, you'll be fine!  Eventually you'll think nothing of zipping along the 6-lane expressway.  Just buckle up, stay alert and obey all the traffic rules, and you'll be fine!  Smiley

I heard that on the news, PG, and I thought about you!  Actually, it made me kinda happy that Buffalo isn't the only clusterfuck in the country ...  Roll Eyes
 
Hope they get it resolved before you take your test!  Good luck!
