Default My rental

Finally got the truck hauled off to the body shop. I was hoping for a 09 F150 but they wouldn't let me have one. So it was between a Nissan Altima and a Chevy Malibu. Being a Chevy hater I choose the Altima

Really a nice car now the wife wants to trade her VW in for one

Doesn't use a "key" you just have to have this fob deal in the car when you push the button. My main reason for not liking the car.

Even tells you how fast you were last going HAHAHA. I wanna take it to 120 before I drop it off LOL

Why don't you like that? I think it's pretty cool, you never have to take your keys out of your pocket.

27.7 miles and it is at half a tank. I wish I could take a road trip. I am unable to drive till at least Thursday. All I can do is sit in it and rev the engine

As scatter brained my wife can be I would spend more time "rescuing" her

Rental guy said they have had to help people out countless times. They go start the car and for what ever reason leave the fob on the counter. go where ever it is turn off the car then realize they don't have the fob to restart it.

The insurance adjuster called today. He said he looked at the truck and est. the damage to be 13xx.xx dollars which was 300 dollars more than the body shop est. it to be.

I laughed in my head and said okay lets just get it fixed. I think I know why it was 300 dollars more. We had to move the 89 ranger into the garage. I figured we were getting a rental it could sleep outside.

So I go to move the 89 and it wont start. I decided to just have my wife back the 05 up into it and push it into the garage.

I'd take it up to 120 just before I dropped it off and tell them what a nice car it was and how great the ride was on the freeway.
