New to the Fold

I've heard some people here might actually have things that aren't vans, so I thought I'd share this late purchase:





I've been driving it around getting inspections, new shoes and spare keys for it, and it's great. But the best part is I don't have to schedule for the F250 anymore, I can just pull junk off craigslist or head to the hardware store without worrying about Yoga interfering!

OK, the best part is she loves it and is so happy to be out of the pickup- but I will miss bragging that she drives a crew cab long bed.

Re: New to the Fold

I've always thought they make a vehicle with smart lines. They must have a good set of engineers in the design section. Nice vehicle Jage!

Re: New to the Fold

I love it, my boss just bought a black one and he likes his too. My Dad but 475k on a Volvo wagon BTW, on one engine/tranny, from 1978 to about 1990. If they still build em like they used to, it should last you awhile.

Enjoy!

Re: New to the Fold

Looks like you just doubled your driveway space! That was a big PU.

Congratulations. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy my new Jetta.
