So, I just wanted to intro myself. I am Will, and I was recently looking for a "new" car. I have been needing to replace my Geo Metro. I know, laugh it up.... Better?
I knew there was no newer car that would get that kind of mpg without breaking the bank (56 mpg), and I could not spend more than $10,000.00. Normally up crap creek, but not this time.
I was looking at the 50th small dealership when something glinted in the corner of my eye. It distracted me from the never ending line of dull looking tiny Hondas and Toyotas. I moved to investigate and saw the most beautiful thing. It was a badge that said XFE. It sat on the trunk lid of the most beautiful blue Cobalt I had ever seen. I instantly remember asking several local dealers about the XFE only having them look at me like they had no idea what I was talking about. I was beginning to think the car was a phantom.
I looked at the car and noticed that the window sticker said 30 mpg hwy, and the tag said base model. It had the correct 5 speed, and no power windows. I was thinking that maybe this guy did not know what he had... He didn't, and I did not tell him.
So, I purchased this car. It's a 2008 XFE with 34,000 miles, 100,000 mile warranty, for a grand total of $7,000. I am so damn happy, and by the way after 150 miles I am at avg. mpg. of 38.4!!!!!!
These photos are from the dealership. When I get it cleaned up I will see what my Nikon D700 or D300 can do with it.
