  1. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Well I paid $21,000 plus $700 GAP and $2100 on HondaCare $0 deductible 100,000 mile coverage. It’s ready for 40,000 miles a year Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    EX-L I think. Has leather. And went used. Practically got the better of me. The mileage and that I don’t need a big car since I’m single and have no kids. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Could have asked for a recommendation. I have real estate agents in the family. And why Palmdale? Move out to Kern. Life is better. Commute to Edwards sucks, but 1st week is about over. Also saw some setup for Captain Marvel at work. Brie Larson taking pics before shooting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Dealer in town won’t come close to Costco since it is below invoice. Dealer with Costco about 80 miles away will only go to Costco which is 500 below invoice. My issue is time is running out on the cobalt. Trans issues going to work this morning and then no problems on the way home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    My commute TO work is 75.3 miles. In that drive I have to climb from near sea level to over 4000 ft. Work is something like 2500 ft up. So both directions require some climbing, but going there is worse. Did not want a CVT so 2.0 it was. Wanted everything but leather, so Sport. Wouldnt have minded leather, just do not want the cost of leather and the 2.0. Priorities.

    Mileage is slightly better than the Cobalt's 2.4 and it adds like 80 HP. More if I get that HONDATA tune. I have to move in August so I need the Cobalt to make it that much more. Then I can afford the down on the Accord. I wanted fun and comfort. Almost anything larger will beat the Cobalt in both. I would look at a Malibu, and I did look at a used 2016 with higher miles, until a salesman tried to pull shady shit and kept pushing me to a new Cruze LS after I repeatedly said I dont want that. I said I'm good, my car runs fine. The sales manager then got condescending and proceeded to tell me the Cruze was better than my Colbalt because it was newer and bigger. I told him there is more luxury in my 13 year old car and it still runs. His smart ass response was "Well obviously not, you came in here for a reason". So I walked out and told the salesman I am tempted to call the GM about him being a condescending asshole, then I left. Won't by another from there since the GM didn't even return my call

    First day as a DoD employee is done. On the way home I figured out a way to work the truck into the schedule. It had sat for 3 weeks before Friday. I think the car will be commute and truck will be in town weekend runabout. Also been eyeing the Accord Sport 2.0T to replace the cobalt. Want something comfortable with extended warranty to do 40,000+ miles a year in. Costco price is about 28k Also Destination Not Found Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Driving to class last night I saw this. Looks to have “frame” damage. This was basically it going straight and it looked like it was hard to control. Looked like the body work (yes i know it is a unibody) was rotated a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
