Stick or Automatic? – Automatic.

Do you let your friends drive it? – Ya.

Best memory – When I was younger, I got a teenage mutant ninja turtle and forgot to take it out of the car. Then every time my parents saw it they told me to take it in but I never did. Now, it’s about 5 years later and we feel that we can’t take him out because he has been in the car so long.

If you knew what you know now about your car, would you buy it again? – Of course!

If you were given $25,000 in cash today, what car would you buy with it?- Hmm…Probably a Jeep.
