New Car
Posted by tim in Happy on March 24, 2009

Yep, you read the subject correctly: I got a new car. And by "new", I mean a 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer. It only had 20-some miles on it when I drove it off the lot.

Everyone keeps asking me what prompted this purchase. Here are a few reasons:

  • The Saturn had over 100,000 miles on it
  • The transmission in the Saturn was starting to slip really bad
  • Not long after having dropped $800 into the Saturn for a new water pump, hoses, and thermostat, and after having changed the EGR valve, the "Service Engine Soon" light came on
  • The Lancer was cheap :)

Now though, I really have no excuse for not driving somewhere... although I do have a lot of studying to do before April 2nd...

Nice! Jap cars usually last a good 400.000km with proper service. :-) It looks real smart too! How about pics of the interior?

That'll have to wait until I get it detailed next. A weekend at the beach got it a little dusty inside.
