    Thanks CantGetNuf Heehee! I test drove the SRT8 (V8 Engine) Yellow with Black Racing Stripes but it was WAY too much car for me. I would have had a $1000 in fines and tickets with a suspended license in no time! So I got the downgraded V6 and classic white like one in the movie Vanishing Point.

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    I got my Mercedes from my employer. And no I didn't have to sleep with him to get it. During the worst part of the recession he couldn't afford to give me a raise. My clunker broke down and he gave me the Mercedes and told me not to ask for a raise for at least 3yrs. lol Worked for me. Its a '92 but my employer has OCD so it's in great shape.
    When I first got it my son asked if I could meet him at the gas station. When I pulled in he got out of his car, went to my trunk and opened and then reclosed it. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "You had a Dollar General bag hanging out the trunk. Gawd it didn't take you long to redneck up this car did it." LMAO!!!

    I test drove my new car today. I'm going to pick it up tomorrow. It's my third straight RED car. lol I asked him to find me a silver one, but it didn't work out. He asked about red and I said why not? lol (IT's actually Sparkling Ruby Red. Dark red with some sparkle.) It's a 2013 Elantra. It's sporty enough, but still a good sedan.

    Debb we have a silver 2011 Elantra. Sporty little car. My husband wanted it for his work car because it gets such good gas mileage.

    My car turns 5 years old this summer! I'm hoping to pay it off in August with my house money.

    I love red. I'm on my 2nd red car. I will NEVER have a silver car again, I've had too many. Plus i think it's boring (no offense ) but seriously look around, most cars you see are black, white and gray/silver. It's weird, there used to be so many vibrant colors. My car is a 2014 Chevy Cruze. Not my first choice but GREAT on gas.

    My son bought a 2017 Chevy Cruze hatchback in January and loves it so far. The hatchback is new for 2017 which is why he waited to get it.

    I've never, ever had a red car. I think b/c in my mind it's kind of flashy and I don't want to draw attention to myself.
    I had a maroon Astro van for many years, which is as close to red as I have gotten. Right now my Chevy Trailblazer is charcoal, which appears almost black. In the past I've had navy blue and silver cars.

    Re: What kind of car do you drive?

    This happened on Wednesday and I'm still laughing thinking about parking at the service bay for the guy to take down the information before the recall plus service stuff that needed to be done. I drive a Honda CRV purchased in January 2007, and when he wrote down the odometer reading it was 9999.00. One more mile and I would have made 10,000. I squealed and he said I could drive around the block a few times to hit the mark, but I declined. Still...a great car moment for me. The guys at the dealership love my car even with its paint scrapes.

    Needless to say, the drive home flipped the odometer.
