Look What Followed Me Home Yesterday!










A (new to me) 2010 Kia Soul!

YAYZ, car payments for the next 5 years!

My 2001 Hyundai Elantra was starting to die - no air conditioning, no heat, the electrical system was acting strange.  117K miles on her; I bought her in 2006 (used) with 49K miles, one original owner.  The dealer gave me $200 trade in value.

The Soul has 26K miles, one original owner.

Everything in this car is in the same spot as my old Hyundai.

We were meant for each other! :)

  1. Great news and enjoy!!!!!

    Now you can get your own houseboys in that and stop calling me to deliver them!!!! By the looks of the back, you should be able to fit at least 5 muscular studs in there.

  3. Awesome! My last car was a Hyundai Elantra (inherited from Jeffrey.) It was a good car. I looked at a Kia Soul, but want with the Subaru Forester because it had more internal space. Enjoy.

    1. I also looked at the forester, but that would not fit in my tiny garage. the soul fits in the same footprint as my old hyundai.

  17. Congrats my lovely dear. Good choice as I love the Kia Soul, my favorite to rent when in Florida. Roomy, easy to drive, got pep, great visibility. Sits up at just the right height. I’d buy one if I wasn’t in the business I am in.

    1. SMOOCH! the height is what I need now; getting my fat arthritic ass/knees out of a lower car is too painful. with this I just slide in/out (that's what HE said, LOL). had her for almost 2 weeks now and I LOVE the ride!
