Looked at a Volvo XC60 T8 today. Dayum! Those badboys are nice! I told her she'd have to sell the Charger. She said "no" and threatened to without sex and lawn mowing. We're back to the drawing board.
it was worth a shot. I suspected the manual might be an issue. They seem to be a cult thing nowadays.

she wants a beater. I'll get her a beater. We looked at a few rigs today. I told her let's stop looking. No need to have an extra car now with 6 months of good weather coming our way.

ZEro down 135 a month buick encore lease
chevy trax same deal.

todays lease deal is toyota tacoma zero down 174 a month lease...

she has a hot rod scat pack she loves...do a 5000 or 7500 mile lease ...

scour this leasehackr website when you are thinking of getting something for her...

https://leasehackr.com/

its a great site to shop...

fwiw gm is coming out with new buick encore so the one out now in a few months will be back to 135 a month...

my cell phone bill is higher,,,

the tacoma seems cool...

check in the various sections of the forum in a fe

w months
the other thing to check is short term lease deals avaialble on swap a lease

look for the 6 to 9 month leases...

sameon craigslist....swap a lease or lease transfer as key words...

having a warranty for the wifes vehicle makes sense..

never a beater.
