New car

I totally forgot to mention I got a new car.

This is not the best picture of my car or my guy, but I am lazy and don't want to go out and take one lol and this is my new vehicle! :)

I had a 2010 Ford Escape, and loved it. I loved the leather seats, the sun roof, the fancy parts of the car and the fact that it was the newest vehicle to date that I have ever owned.  The problem was that it broke down on me three different times in the year that I had it, all three times the issue at hand was never successfully diagnosed and fixed. Once I was told it was bad gas. It got towed two times because it would not drive to the place, but they couldn't figure out what was going on with it.  Something made me feel uneasy with the vehicle. It broke down on me without warning and then the high dollar extended warranty I purchased was crap!  They messed the paperwork up on me when I purchased it they left off the mileage the car was when  I bought it... and every time I called them broke down on the side of the road they said my warranty was not valid.  The place I bought it always did me right and gave me a car to drive, but it was always a hassle and big fuss.

I told the sales guy at the dealership I would get another vehicle if they could get me in one for the same price I got into that Ford.  They did, they got me in a 2011 Hyundai Tuscon.  I miss some of the features of the Ford still, but have piece of mind and better warranty and feel like this vehicle might be a little more dependable.  Do I think bad of all Fords? No... just think I got some sort of lemon or something.  I do like my sleek black car, and its getting me around town just like I need it to! :)

I have had it two months now... I got it on June 22nd, the day I did Huntsville Sprint Triathlon.... I had to go to the event in a loaner car, it just happened to be a 2013 Hyundai Tuscon... I think I fell in love with that car so it helped make my decision to get one, and the 2011 was more my price range. :)
