    Most of you know the spousal units relationship with cars. I finally broke down and bought her another.

    Should we take a poll on how long this one lasts?

  2. Need more info.
    Is it new or used?
    If used, how many miles on it?
     
  3. None of that matters when it comes to how she drives it :eek::yikes::fight:

    The tires aren't flat, it sunk into the ground from the weight :rotfl:

    Trashy will be along any minute to claim it!

    If you leave it right where it is, parked...forever :rotfl:(I hope she doesn't read these posts :lurk:)

    Used. I don't buy new. Prefer to let others take the financial hit.

    Just over 23K. Its 4 years old.

  14. Can you imagine how much they are paying for car insurance? Ouch.

    Take a taxi or call Uber drivers.

    I will give SWMBO this.
    Brakes, transmissions, door handles, dome lights, even little unexplained holes. But she has never wrecked one.

    Car insurance is cheap. Perfect driving record. Triple A charges us double though. :confused:

    Just checking out SWMBO,s new car this morning. I didn't get too involved yesterday. Was just the interested husband staying out of the way, letting the wife pick out what she wanted. My standard answers were you drive it, pick out what you want. Its your car.

    This car is sweet! (I did know it was loaded. Everything except a sun roof). Sit in the seat and push the button to start it, and the seat automatically adjusts. Push the button to turn it off and the seat drops down and slides to the rear making it easier to exit and enter. It has all the safety warning devices, and a climate control system, not the standard switches and knobs.

    What I did not know is that the thing is turbocharged! This thing is quick!

    I do think she made the right choice. Wonder if I could get her to trade cars with me?
     
  18. Then we will need another poll for how long you survive her wrath!
