Today I took in my gto because behind the driver side rear tire the bumper keeps popping loose and they told me they would have to give me a rentawreck. For a couple of hours they had me in a pos slowbalt because they were trying to find something bigger. Finally I went back and they "found" a v6 charger for me to drive. I now remember why I went with the goat instead of the charger. Hopefully I will have my car back tomorrow so I can get rid of this lumbering beast I have sitting in my driveway. In a way it reminds me of the canyonero from the simpsons becuase it feels like it is big as a house and 3 lanes wide.

...65 tons of American pride...it's the top of the line in utility sports; unexplained fires are a matter for the courts...that was a great episode. Sucks that you have to drive that dinosaur...hope you get the GOAT back ASAP.

Last time i was at the dealership to get the gto worked on they tried to give me something like that. I kicked and screamed and they eventually caved in and let me take the other gto on the lot. I can't stand driving any other car.

Well I will be getting my car back on wednesday. Unfortunatly it was finished at 4 p.m. and that is when I started work. There were a few things I did like about the charger though. For starters the seat motors were atleast 4 times faster than the motors we have(I guess they had to have something faster) and the ride was extremely smooth even doing 50 over a set of speed bumps and lastly the sound quality of their audio set up was great.

I just got my gto back and got home and what a surprise the problem I took it in for is still there. One other thing about the charger was I am 6' and around 275lbs and this car still had me feeling as if I was a little kid sitting in daddies car.

I am also having two speakers replaced because i like my music a little bit too loud. Then also having my gas tank lid fixed. It won't lock shut. So four things. I'm gunna be in a rental for a few days, which sucks.

Well the car is back in the shop. They ordered me a new bumper and I should have it back in 2 days since they still need to paint it. For the time being I will be driving a chevy colorado. I would have complained about the truck, but I recently came from an s-10 so it isn't so bad. I just feels weird to be so high off of the road again.

When my wife took my car in for the front bumper repair work to remove the screw holes, they gave her a Kia Optima! It's a good thing that I was out of town or that wouldnt have happened for sure... Aztec almost sounds like a step up...
