So we finally arrived here yesterday.
Versa all packed:
1.5 hour wait at the border:
Noticed the V hit 35,000 km while waiting in line:
Look at what I found when we arrived at the hotel:
My dad bought it without telling me
Caliber pros: Big inside, HUGE trunk, seemed pretty powerful, tons of hidden compartments to store stuff, and a chill zone in the glove compartment
Cons: Passenger blinker burnt out, brake pedal is very high off the floor (meaning you cannot rest your foot on the floor), and the blind spot is horrible. Backing out of a parking space is a nightmare. It also had 40,000 miles ... too old for my liking.
So I went back to Enterprise and switched the car. The guy told me we could switch daily if we wanted, but I got a 2010 Hyundai Elantra with 8000 miles on it. Still looks new. This car makes me miss my CVT. You can really feel it changing through the gears and from take off it has little power. The word ECO keeps appearing on the dash. It too has a huge trunk, and not a bad exterior.
I have found so many other HK fans here:
And of course I had to add my touch to the car, this is hanging off the rearview mirror, so if you see me HONK
And to all Cali people. What is with your cold weather? It was freezing here today. I had to wear a winter sweater (which I'm thankful I brought). Back home, it's over 100F ... here it feels like winter
