2015 S hatch
Well, I helped my mother buy a 2015 S grand touring Hatch to replace her horribly beat 99 taurus. Although we wanted a Stick, we are both pleased with the Auto and love the car and are both building credit through it.
Most importantly, I am in the Army and away from my mom who lives alone and really can't maintain her car ideally, and I only get to visit once a year (she lives in SoCal, I'm stationed in upstate NY). This is one less thing she and I have to worry about, as her taurus has a transmission that slips all over the place, has no heater or working gauges, and no power steering. I could have fixed most of those things but here in upstate NY, or Afghanistan, I cannot, and she cannot. With her new car, she won't even have to change the oil before I am out of the army and ready to take care of the thing. Tire pressure is my only concern, and I'll tell a friend to do that for her.
She is actually more of a hot rodder than I am, and loves a car that has soul, which is why we went for this car. 13:1 compression and a race header? Hell yeah! And it's a rocket, too. quiet, seamless acceleration at any speed. I taught her how to use the paddles and in what instances 'Sport' mode would be appropriate. Anyways, I'm posting this because the forum is saying I have to before I can go forward. I myself have a collection of absolute shit cars that I never maintain and abuse.
