    Just caught up on backlog of magazines yesterday. One was consumers reports where they tested the GLA. Pretty much roasted it.

    I'm not a member so I couldn't see the full review on line but what I could see didn't seem like they hated it. But man, are they not a fan of the CLA. I'm not either for the record but its strictly from a styling point, haven't driven one.

    All of the German brands are going down market now and getting hammered for it. I've only driven the A3 and the GLA both of which I like. Like any other German make one leaves the near 30k starting price in the distance when you start adding options. I don't necessarily like them dumbing down the brand, especially BMW, and making lesser vehicles for the masses but they are selling apparently.

    I was pretty impressed with the GLA when the wife and I test drove it last year. I was really liking the styling when it came out, but I'm not quite as endeared with it as I was back then for some reason. Not so much that I would take it off the list, but just not quite as thrilled anymore.

    I did think it was a bit cramped, but then again I was in my 5-series at the time. Coming from my Mazda3, or the wife's GTI, I'm sure it would seem just fine and more than adequate.

    I agree on the performance - I found the 2.0 turbo to be pretty engaging.

    I think the perception of the quality of some of these new entry-level cars from the luxury makes depends on what you compare it to. The GLA (and CLA) may pale a bit in comparison to the new C-class and other MB vehicles, but when we looked at it, I was more comparing it more to the wife's GTI. I mean, her fully-loaded GTI has an MSRP of almost $33k. It seemed a reasonably well-equipped GLA would be right around $40k. I think that price difference makes the Mercedes look pretty good, especially considering the addition of AWD.

    Same goes for the A3.

    So, back from the Amish world. Power went out at 6:00 tuesday when the bad storm line (close to tornados in the area). Just came on about an hour ago. So just over 48 hours. Lucky, because as of today, the power company was estimating Noon Saturday. By then, with a couple of thunderstorms, the pool would have gone over the banks! Really need to get some sort of generator for the future.

    anyway, in the middle of no power, trying to work from home without internet (or, power!), and normal life, I got bombarded suddenly with interest in the Volvo. Not sure why, since I last renewed the ad last Friday. So, just my luck as to the timing.

    one guy showed up today, and took it away. A large wad of cash combined with my being hungry, tired, and sweaty, and I caved and went a few hundred below my rock bottom line. But, it is gone.

    Now, I get to find out if it was a good idea or not, because at some point in the next 4-6 weeks, I need a buying story. otherwise in Mid August, the wife and I become a 1 car family. And that ain't happening!

    oh heck no. if that was the best offer I got, he was getting back in his Jeep and driving back to Allentown with a disappointed daughter. And I would have held on to it.

    depends which short list. since it has been a few weeks, I lost track.

    pretty sure I swung back to just keeping the Sonata, and finding something not too expensive on a 3 year lease for the daughter. timing works out the best on that plan. Besides, i don't have the budget right now to get myself something fancier than the Hyundai!

    Mazda 3i G and Sonata Sport are probably the top 2 options. I may try to sneak the Camry in again (hey, might get an XSE in under budget!). I can investigate the Legacy, but probably still out of price range.

    I'll shoot out a few emails tomorrow, and maybe look a bit Saturday. But doing something over the 4th is a good bet. Would rather not wait until just before she is going back in mid-August.

    or, I never get around to it, and she takes the Hyundai, "forcing" me to go and get something!

    Lease number expirations:

    Toyota - 7/6
    Hyundai - 7/6
    Mazda 7/6

    So, the numbers you got from us a few weeks ago (June?) should still be valid next weekend.

    Weird... Still no payment book or welcome letter (via mail) on the Yukon. I already contacted the bank and made the first payment online (next payment not due until August), but I'd expect to receive something in the mail by now? Of course, changing addresses right after buying the car probably didn't help.

    (Also kind of shocked any bank would finance a vehicle with 140,000 miles at a reasonable interest rate, but that's a story for another time...)

And, of course, the '92 Nissan Sentra SE-R and '95 Saab 900s I bought for the ex... Ok, I like a lot of the cars in my life.

    Yes, I doubt there is any reason for concern on a practical basis. From what I read about it, the issue is due to the circuitry coming down to a potential single point of failure. Those safety systems must have redundancies in them so as to prevent things like the now famous "unintended acceleration" hoopla.

    Some reprogramming should do the trick.

    so, did some more looking and driving today. No yelling, silent treatment, and no one died. so all in all, a good day!

    drove a Jetta Sport (well, she drove, I rode). we both drove an ILX. really liked the Jetta. like a GLI with the 1.8l powertrain. A good compromise. Navi interface looked like a Garmin circa 2008, but at least it had nav. Hard to get a real strong price though (they are actually pretty thin supply, seem popular). Certainly a contender.

    the ILX? Nice to sit in. quick. Did not really enthuse either one of us. Probably just used to the Sonata, so it seemed a bit small and rough? We did sit in a TLX> that was really nice.

    scoped out a Sonata sport with tech & premium. Screaming deal on one of those. Just having trouble getting over the idea of 2 same year sonatas in the fleet. But bang for buck, it has it (even if not "exciting").

    sat in the Mazdas again. decided the 3 is just a bit too small for this application. the 6 though, that was nice. plenty of room, nice interior. Huge trunk.

    so, at the moment, seem to have a working list (to be discussed today, to try and come down to a winner) of:

    -Jetta sport - smaller but big enough, a little pricey per month.
    -Mazda 6i touring - sporty, roomy, plenty of features (but have to add Navi), good value
    -Sonata sport premium/tech - loaded with features, roomy, good highway cruiser, great bang for buck.
    -Accord sport - pricey, low on feature content.
    -Legacy premium - most expensive. solid car, but seems to be falling out of favor.

    Continued: So, lots of solid and interesting choices. In terms of features, back up cam is a must. Power seat is not required, as long as she can raise it high enough (kind of short). moonroof is not a concern. really wants built in Navi (can't blame her). I think BLIS is a must now (she is less concerned about it). Would prefer XM for the long drives through nowhere.

    putting all this together, and factoring in the budget (shot to hell, but I am still trying for some sense of rationality with the revised one!), the choice is down to the Mazda 6, Jetta sport, and Sonata sport. That assumes she gets the new one. still may hand down my car. She really does like the Sonata, just has an aversion to having the same car! That does go against all my principles too of course.

    an interesting set of options, all right about the same monthly lease cost of $250/mo. All should do great for 3 years of 8 hour commutes to school, and all the running around while there. Too bad she just hated the Camry, and I didn't want to force it on her, but the difference in price, in the big picture, is not all that much.

    Most likely the Jetta will be first knocked off the list. Nice, but not quite as nice as the other 2 (which are both cheaper, roomier, and have more stuff on them)
