Default Just Bought a 2008S Auto

Wife and I had been shopping for a car for a few weeks. Ran across an ad for this one on CL, went to check it out.

I rode along but didn't test drive as the car is/was mostly for my wife. We really liked the interior space and flexibility, it seemed peppy enough and was in great shape. Did the deal the next day.

I drove it to work for the first time yesterday - I DID NOT expect it to be fun to drive. Seriously, I thought "Eh, econo-box" until I drove it. No, it's not a rip-snorting muscle car, but genuinely a hoot to drive.

Nah, it's an automatic for her. She's got a bad knee and often doesn't want to drive the truck (manual) because it hurts to clutch.

But of course when we go someplace together, I'll get my turn.

Wait until you need to move some stuff and see how much you can cram in there you may give up the truck or buy a Fit for yourself.

I'll never get rid of my truck. It's a tiny old Nissan, and no matter how much you can 'fit' into the Fit, I couldn't do this:

I'll get the tape measure out next time my FIL needs his mower moved.

Oh wait... I *know* it won't work. My FIL drove his giant lawn mower into the back of my truck. We'd have to push it into the Fit. No thanks.
