Thought i'd get some retail therapy as a change of pace.
big mistake. looked at a new Hyundai Tucson diesel. an extra $10,000 if you want keyless ignition.
Tell 'em they're dreamin? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

My daughter bought a Hyundai Santa Fe turbo diesel last year.
So powerful and quiet and yet it's just a 2.2 litre engine ?

saw the Santa fe in the showroom, -way too big for me.
i'd be looking at 'mid size SUV' category, the Sportage (kia) Tucson (hyundai)
and the X trail (nissan).

I had a back up plan, bought some plants and dug holes with the crowbar.
Imagined i was burying the mofos from the indian call center. :lol: :lol:
My timing was perfect, put in 4 plants in the paddock, and today we get beautiful soaking rain
to give them a good start in life.
