ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


yup ok this is so unexpected!!!

my sister wanted to get a larger vehicle cause she has three little ones in seats in the back and her ford taurus is only a mid sized car ........... so they are getting a tad cramped in the back

well .. sister finds she isnt going to get much for the trade in of her car not sure why its a 2004 i think . anyways its pretty new . so i told her DH has thought about getting me a car but i said no since we share a car atm and honestly it works fine enough and we dont have another cars gas and repairs to pay for. either way my sister said shed sell it to me for a grand no problem ....... well ..... i think thats a good price

she said it needs s tune up but really that cant be that pricey ....... and it has ALL working windows !! AND A RADIO!!!!!!! WITH A CD PLAYER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my first CAR EVER to have a working radio AND CD player oh my ....

i mean its 1 grand how can i pass it up? i think personally that they are not super pretty .. i dont think they design is flattering really lol i like jettas or civics .. camry .... accords .....

but i mean its dependable and i feel like its a steal .. what you gals think ..???

Well the first words out of Dales mouth were "whats wrong with it".
An 04 goes for roughly $4,500 around here, depending on mileage and options. Even more from a car lot.
I'd say go for it!

well she said it needs a tune up BUT that there were no real issues with the car . and seriously this is my sis if she knew anything REALLY wrong shed tell me

her and i are REALLY close so im not scared to trust her on ANYTHING let alone a car . i mean i trust my only child with her . and no one else has babysat him . just her LOL

(dixiana i LOVE dales thought process . wats wrong with it ? LOL funny yet SO trrue that you need to have that "buyer beware" )

the only thing wrong with it officially is that the turn signals only turn off if you move it back to normal spot .. as in if you hit the left turn signal .. normally it would click back into no signal on after you made your turn .. this car it will stay on left turn signal forever til you manually set it back

so honestly its like 100 bucks to fix but i really have no issue putting it back to normal on my own . its not that big a deal

the AC works GREAT

(i have NO ac in my truck so im STOKED AND NO RADIO AT ALL)

so to have ac and ALL the windows AND a radio AND a cd player is unheard of in my past LOL

either way i told DH and he wants to talk to his buddy in the morn but im pretty sure we are gonna get it

ill KUP tomrw bout what his buddy says and such ... but honestly if SOMETHING were wrong with it shed tell me
