I'm going to clean this post up a little later, but for now, I'll give the highlights. On December 31st, a blue moon I might add, I finalized a purchase. I bought a new car. Finally after months of humming and hawing, I made a decision. The 2010 Kia Forte Koup SX, in shimmering silver. Loaded - leather, sunroof, 6-speed automatic. It's gorgeous and I absolutely adore my new ride. And no, when I turned in Sabrina Sebring, I didn't cry. As bro Chris says, "Chrysler could go broke any minute - dump that thing!"
Painless experience at Kia Vancouver - thankfully because Dad's in the biz, I could deal with the Fleet Manager, Troy - hell of a nice chap.
