  • Re: Buying American Cars What Does It Mean?

    Folks, buy what floats your boat and if others have a problem with your choice...tough! If you're not paying the note, your opinion isn't needed or wanted. Any positive comments are accepted but any negativity will not be entertained at all. Seriously, we all have different reasons for driving what we do, all valid to the individual.

    Coming home from work, I was in a great deal of back pain and wasn't paying attention. Looked up and saw a highway patrol car up ahead and I was doing 85 in a 70 zone and he put his lights on and started to move. I just knew he was after me!! I hit the brakes immediately, dumb move really, and started to move over a couple of lanes so I could pull over...felt like I was gonna pass out from the back pain and the fear of getting pulled over. Well, don't ya know, he gets behind the black Celica next to me and proceeds to stop him! Man, I must've thanked G-d about 20 times as I settled down and proceeded on home doing exactly 70 the whole ways home. Talk about lucky, I was sure he was going to nail my butt and another ticket is all I need right now!!!
    Guess I need to slow it down a bit and this was just the reminder I needed to slow 'er down in the future!! G-d was definitely on my side today!!

    I owned a '14 Tucson for just over a year and it was flawless...drove very nicely but was just too big for me. I got the SE version as I needed a power seat and would've kept it but due to the size and the better mpg's I'm getting in my Golf. First time I ever dumped a vehicle in such a short period of time, bought 12/1/13 and sold 12/14/14. I had looked at the Encore while shopping and was set to get one but liked the Tucson a bit better at the time.

    More like 2400 or so...Ft. Lauderdale is about 1200 miles away from the areas in Westchester I'd be going to. Peekskill, Shrub Oak, Briarcliff/Ossining area, Mt. Kisco, Katonah and then possibly into Westport, down to the city and out to Staten Island to visit family. Since I've not been back in like 9 years, know I'm going to be doing some driving so flying/renting might just be the best thing here. And if I do take the Golf, it'll just add an additional 6 days onto the trip so I really have to think here.
    But Part I, renting the vehicle just in case, is done. Lodging comes next. Always best to stay in a hotel as not to inconvienence anyone and makes it easier to just come and go. Having missed the last one and the couple before that, feel it's now or never to do this...think I do owe it to myself to "just do it"!
