I bought a 2015 Kia Rio. On the one hand I realize Kia is not the greatest (I’ll point that out before anyone else does), on the other hand it’s the nicest, newest, most expensive car I’ve ever had, so for me it’s a step up. It’s a bare bones model, though. Hand crank windows, manual locks, no alarm, no cruise. Whatever, that’s what I had with one previous car, and I drove that for six years. It gets awesome gas mileage, 27 city 37 highway, excited about that.
I like it! Congratulations
How is the new job going?
Congratulations!!! It is so nice! @freakonaleash
It’s going well, though I haven’t done any real work yet, aside from a tiny of bit of shadowing yesterday afternoon. Other than that it’s been orientation stuff. I’ll start training Monday, though not in the actual pharmacy services dept. Next week I will be in the training center, sort of a simulation, then the week after I will be in the actual pharmacy unit in the children’s hospital, where I will be from then on.
My best bud loaned me $500 this morning, saved my ass and allowed me to get this car. I owe him big time. I got it with just a $500 down payment. First actual payment won’t be due for a little while.
Awesome, sounds like you’re enjoying it. I hope it’s not as stressful as your last job.
Nice car! I just bought a new car 2 months ago too. Enjoy that new car feeling while it lasts!
Looks good. My Chevy Caviler looks just like it (I gave it away to my nephew). Awesome.
Great car, hope it gives you many happy miles
SO GLAD to hear your transport woes have been solved. Enjoy your new ride!
Edit: The most important thing is a sexy interior. Who wants to look at an ugly gauge package?!?
Your Kia is The Sexy.
Yeah, the van broke down at the worst possible time, orientation week at the first full-time job I’ve had in years. Like you said, though, that problem has been solved, got myself a car that should be reliable, with as new as it is (still under warranty).
Nice car @freakonaleash. That looks like a perfect commuter car, great gas mileage and reliable. I personally like less frills on a car as it’s less stuff to break. Things like electronic windows and automatic door locks are often the first things to break so you won’t need to worry about that with your new car.
Yeah, we made a point of buying my wife’s new-ish van without electronic doors and tailgate – all they do is fail during the first good cold snap. Simpler is usually better.
