I just looked up my car 2011 sienna..

I was happy -- I had little info when I bought it in 2010.

Jesus Fucking Christ! I'm glad Manly wasn't hit by one of those. You put a fucking turret and a .50 cal on top of that and it'd fucking survive Afghanistan. ... Also looks like it could provide housing for a family of 4. Big Grin

Got it. Thanks!

They are giving you 14 cents per mile discount when 25 is more reasonable. If the model is not the issue I'd take the new one every time.

And if I buy a new Tucson I get a $500 discount for being a "valued Hyundai owner" and another $500 for being a Vet making the difference even less. Think it's gonna boil down to the additional cargo space available in the Santa Fe. We don't use it often, but it is nice when we need a new refrigerator and can just go to Costco and take it home.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

That's an interesting way to look at it. Thanks!

I'm just happy I didn't meet HoC and BB's fate!

I gots no damn Mercedes. I gots a Jeep. I wanna 135i Bemer convert, but my puppy gets so excited in it he pees on the seat. And I need the Jeep for carrying stuff on the top.
