Well today we finalized the deal on my lunch break (and I got another grand off the car, which slightly lowered the monthly payment and shortened the term by 6 months
) so I left my truck there and took the new car. Then after dinner went back and picked up the truck.
It rides even nicer on the highway than it does on local roads. It's effortless. Electric PS I guess helps that. It's not fully loaded, but it's loaded enough to feel like I have something "of the times" now. It has Bluetooth(which was nice on the ride home), Satellite radio, heated mirrors, auto-dim rearview with Homelink and Hyundai's roadside assistant, auto-stick, traction control, ABS
, stability control. Even with everyone in the car it got up to highway speeds in a hurry. When driving home myself, I was on the highway doing 85 not realizing I was doing it till I looked down. It's SOO quiet inside. I'm used to the echoing boxes that it's almost too quiet, but that's where the Bluetooth came handy to get some tunes going.
On the way home from getting my truck my wife drove the car. She really likes it, but it will take some time to get used to. I guess that's what happens when you get something new when you are so used to old cars with high miles. Either way, I told her that I can't wait till she wants something else so I can have that car.
Tomorrow..... I start driving the wagon again
We are going to evaluate how much it's going to cost in insurance with 3 cars then make a judgment call as to what we are going to do with the truck. If it's cheap enough I may keep the truck as a spare/family outing/snow vehicle. If it's too expensive, the truck will get sold and the money will be put away for car payments. That's all to be decided, but in the meantime I need to clean that car better cause they did a ****ty job at cleaning the windows and they fogged right up. I think tomorrow my wife's going to clean the car.
