As many of you already know, I've plenty of trouble with my car, starting with having to replace the whole transmission right after I bought it. The current batch of ills consisted of rear brakes about to go, a half-broken emergency brake, a leaky gas tank, and a slipping timing belt. This made for a total repair cost of somewhere over $2000, which was more than the damned thing was worth.

I decided on an alternate solution.

No thanks, I expect to keep this for at least 5 years.

"I am the Knight..."

Wait, what? New Knightrider? The 80's rise again... again?

Is it just me or did KITT get really ugly?

Pure envy-fueled hate rays are directed towards your vicinity.

Don't envy me too much. My auto debt just jumped from $3,700 to around $19,000 all together. The car was $13,000, but then there's the carry over from the old car, the taxes and fees, and I even got the extended warranty this time to avoid the problems I had last time.

As long as it's dependable it'll be worth it.

Hopefully you bought this one from a different dealer.

It got it from Simmons-Rockwell. I didn't even check out the Honda dealership.
