I bought a new car!

  1. I bought a new 2006 Scion xb. It kind of looks like a box on wheels, but its cute. it grows on you. It drives so easy, it's very roomy,and it fits 2 carseats and a booster seat in the back!

    When I drove it off the lot it had 18 miles on it. I've never even been in a car that had that few miles on it.

    Anyone else have a scion? What do you think?

    My sister likes those--I can't see it. I've got an Escape and I love it. I've actually upgraded two rentals to drive them on vacation. It's very easy for my 82 y/o mom and her friends to get in and out of. Only change I'd make is to get the Hybrid version, but not sure it would make that much of a difference w/the amount of freeway driving I have to do.

    Really impt ??: What color is it?

    Congrats!


    This is what I was driving over Thanksgiving break:



    Don't worry, ain't mine. *sigh* It's my cousin's - he just bought it this year :chuckle

    I drive a beat up '96 Neon

    Hey! MY car has 5333.33333 MORE miles than yours does!

    So neener-neener.

    Hey, previously we had a 1988 Mercury Topaz, which did have only 78000 miles on it, but a bad transmission. It broke on the drive home from my son's school. Plus, it was a 2 door car, for 5 people. ugh.
    We also had a 1993 Ford Aerostar van for a short while. 200,000 plus miles on it, and a really bad transmission. It shook, and hesitated when I pushed the gas, and jerked, and it made bad, bad, noises. it broke on my way home from work.

    so, with both cars broken and way more cost to fix then cars were worth, we got a rental car for 5 days while we worked on buying a new car.

    How exciting for you!! Glad the car "feels" so good to sit in and drive! And our two cars are red, so I have no complaints about the color!

    Congrats!!

    I have a F-150 pick-up and when it grows up, it's going to be a F-350....or a Dodge Ram. (I loved the decked out Dodge Ram Pick-up I used to have.....used to get compliments at drive-thru windows with that baby!) :chuckle
