Comments: Chip, chip

The weird thing about being a used car salesman must be that he knows that everybody thinks he's trying to cheat them and that he knows that everybody is trying to cheap him. Kudos for the honesty. I'm sure it was a breath of fresh air to someone who's probably worried that he'll become someone he wont want to look at in the mirror in the morning.

currently toiling in advertising on behalf of the car dealer, I can tell you that good, honest ones are few adn far between...

you fit into an Accent? I can barely fit into an Accent...And I'm not even tall.

Disposable cars, those Accents. But great gas mileage!

Hats off to ya for the honesty,Ted.Con jobbing a company isn't any more moral than doing it to a person.
Also,I know how you feel on that tranny thing.I had to get rid of both my 68 Roadrunner and my 78 Wagoneer because the cost of fixing tranny problems was more than I could afford.Sounds like you made out pretty well though.Good luck with it.I am kinda suprised that you liked the Hyundai.My granny has one.I have driven it a few times and it seems cramped to me.That's not to mention bashing my head on the roof ridge every time I get into it.For an economy only car I would pick a nice,clean,low mile Dodge Omni any day.
Let me tell ya Ted that even new cars can be somewhat of a PITA.I just had almost $ 1,500 worth of service work done to mine.Most of that was just regular maintenance minus a new camshaft positioning sensor.I decided to go ahead and get everything done from top to bottom after my battery died at that little store up there next to Great Meadow one day a few months ago.The cam sensor was something I had put off for over a year.Thing is that it was originally diagosed as a bad fuel pump.That's understandable as it did have all of the symptoms.
