Just wanted to share my exciting new set of (small) wheels I got.
I've ALWAYS driven Volkswagens that have been older and paid off, but I felt a change was needed to trade a cheap car payment for hefty German-parts-repair-costs.
Although I will always have VW in my heart, I felt a change was needed.
I traded my 2000 V6 VW Passat (his name was Bradley, or 'Brad') and got a 2014 Chevy Spark (named La Roux!).
Now I'm sure some of you are laughing at the size, but it has 31/39 MPG as well as just enough space to carry 4 adults without being overwhelmingly big.
I have made a few slight adjustments when I got Roux such as not advertising the dealership as well as a lovely decal. .. And maybe a very 'pride'-ful air freshener.
It's good to be back in a manual as well.
What do you guys think?!
P.S.: Both Raskin and Butters were wrong. It is neither purple nor black. Bend over and pay up!

Soooooooo, around 150k miles? That's about what I got on my last Chevy that died of natural causes (transmission went out) or you can count the 2012 Impala my ex just totaled last week that was half mine and had 50k miles XD
It's your ride, you like it and thats what matters!
Japanese > German > American Ill take my Nissan over a VW any day, and it's far cheaper to repair!

That Oregon love sticker is the sign of every girl ever in Oregon... Bleck! Good job keeping it off this one.
It's pretty I like it! Be a nice person and don't pull all the way into your parking spots so I don't get deceived driving looking for a spot!

I mainly picked the Spark because I don't need much as a driver other than good mileage and a unique look.
I can still fit people in it, since it does have four doors, but other than groceries, I don't carry much of anyone or anything.
