taken back by this car!
August 7, 2011
JUST drove off the lot with my new SPORTBACK with 3 miles on IT. Fist this I noticed the looks, and people slowing down to try and see the Inside Interior.
The second thing I noticed was the computer telling me I needed gas, which I thought it was telling me which side the gas tank was on, I drove 65 miles not noing this, just having fun playing with the stereo, setting my mirrors, getting covetable with the seat, which is covetable once you figure it out, and to me the stereo sounds just like a home theater system, and the blue tooth, awesome!
Then it dawned on me, I think I NEED GO GO JUICE!!!! STOP!!!! GET GAS!!!, I pulled in, filled up, IT TOOK 12.5 GALLONS, STILL HAD three GALLONS LEFT.
I payed 3.78 a gal, 47.25 cents, big change from my mercury mariner I traded in, 2006 57,000 miles on it.
Third thing I noticed, while filling up, I got the black on black sportback, and to me It looks just like or close to the old 93 saab hatchback, tell me im wrong but to me it does, Its a cool looking car!! with the right rims which I got.
OK, now for the true test drive, I purchased the basic ES, I got on the exspressway DOING 70 MPH IT was quiet, stereo sounded great!!! had ALL the windows down, and when the moment was right, I floored it, MAAAAAAAAN!!!! I got up to 130 mph!!! It felt like a v8, got scared and slooooowed down, and IT handled great!! People I had more, the car will do 150 mph!!!! OMG I thought to myself A 4 cylinder no way, but IT did.
fourth think you can't go wrong with, Im thinking to myself the 100,000 mile "WARRANTY" OMG!!! IM truly taken back by this car, Its a no brainier and 32 miles plus to the gallon, I can go and on about this car, I think it has a great shot for car of the year for 17,000!!!!! I know I made the right choice.
fouth thing that I can't believe 100,000 mile warranty
