So recently our second vehicle, a 02 vw Jetta tdi started to give us some issues so we decided it was time for something new. Our other vehicle is a 06 Tacoma which the wife has grown very found of, and now I bearly drive it anymore. When it came time to look for another vehicle I was hard pressed to buy another truck or SUV due to gas prices and not needing two trucks. I thought the wife would jump at the chance to get a new vehicle but instead she wanted to keep driving truck, and told me to get what I wanted. Me being cheap and owning other previous hyundias, figured I couldn't go wrong with the Elantra and ordered a gL manual which took two + months to come in. I Figured since I was going to be main driver I would go with a standard transmission. Well tonight I had a few drinks at the inlaws place, and it was either pay a cab or wifey drive home. My Wife did drive a standerd many moons ago, so she thought she would give it go. Well low and behold she picked it back up like riding a bike, and I just lost my car as the truck sits in the driveway, and she has my car at work. Easy come easy go :) can't blame her for loving the heated seats and wheel tho :) :)

That'll teach you. You should have known better, once she got her hands on the steering wheel.

Newlyweds, by any chance? ;)

Girl next door divorced me day after that kid smashed me, guess she didn't think I could support her lavish life style anymore.

Later met this beautiful intelligent woman, but was disappointed I owned two AT cars, purchased her a new MT car, that made her happy. She was from a foreign country, had to be imported, what the heck, so does everything else.

When I purchased the Limited, was very disappointed it had an AT, but could only reply, with all the other goodies you wanted, can't buy this with an MT anymore. But when I showed her manual mode, that made her very happy, ha, just pretend you are stepping on the clutch.

She is also a very frugal woman, asked me to look at SUV's and Pickup's, but when I showed her the prices and the terrible fuel economy, she comprehended.

Ha, no matter what kind of vehicle you purchase, in a couple of years, will be worthless. Least we still have a couple of bucks left in the bank.
