Getting rid of the 3...

Hey guys, sadly i have to get rid of my car due to some financial issues. But what this means is i need a replacement. Let me tell you the car thats really stuck to me and what im most likely going to lease. The 2013 hyundai genesis 2.0t. What do you guys think? Any others cars in the same price range i should consider? All inputs are appreciated. Thanks

Seems good, but after reading the car and Driver, the tranny was garbage. But it's still a good value for the new hp your getting. I would suggest teat drive one first, and I mean take it for a real spin and make a decision. Going off the article people had problems shifting.

Why don't you make the weekend cruiser the new daily if you are having financial issues? If you are unable to afford the second car right now, why put yourself in the situation again?

Also, what about the Kia Optima SX?

i had cinnamon raisin english muffins this morning for breakfast. i grabbed the wrong package by mistake because i usually eat the whole wheat ones.

anyways, they were pretty tasty and i might buy one package of each so i can have one whole wheat english muffin and one cinnamon raisin english muffin.

I'm a big apple juice fan in the morning... Orange juice seems to give me heart burn, and water just doesn't do it for me...

Maybe "weekend car" is code for something else, like "wifey's car" or "daddy's car"?

If there really were some financial issues going on, I'd like to think nobody would be dumb enough to keep the '07 CLS and trade in the daily which is warrantied....

And I've found if you mix equal parts Rockstar Sugar Free and Orange juice with lots of pulp, it's a delicious beverage. I had Buona Beef for the first time last week and I must, say it's pretty amazing. Their steak sammich is mmm good.

Typical Californian behavior, OP. I suppose you wear Gucci (gotta hav dat swag) during your financial turmoil too?

Buy a used Honda 4 door and get your shit together.
