Icon9 Ranger going back to dealer

Hello,

When I brought this truck home a week ago, the dealer had not found a creditor to finance it through. Well, they found one today, however, they won't finance a high mileage vehicle. I get to keep the truck until my car comes in off the truck later this week. I ended up getting a new 2011 Ford Fiesta w/ 5 speed tranny. It'll be black on black.

Although the 2.3L Ranger I have is nice and I like driving it, I would rather have the car. Spent 8 years in a 2002 Ford Focus before giving it up. Best car I ever owned.

Anyways, I'm no longer a Ranger, just a Fiesta.

Can you post a picture of the car? I might consider buying a new focus in the near future.

No, I don't have it yet. I was trying to get one with a manual tranny as a hatchback. Dealer was having trouble locating one. So today, I decided to get one with an auto tranny. Sadly, the finance guy wasn't in today. I should have it tomorrow. It will be blue with black interior.

I'd keep the Ranger XL if I could, just the bank won't finance something that has high mileage.

If an auto isn't what you want then wait!! A new car is a decent amount of cash so you may as well get what you want!

Id say wait for the manual. You wont regret it.

And my bad, I thought that you said you were getting a focus.

What made you decide to get a Fiesta?

Do not settle. make them build and order you a manual with your options.
My Fiances Buick got built for us, its one of the only ones in the state with the touring package and smaller wheels. (at least it was at the time i ordered it)

I like the looks of the car. For some reason or another, I like small cars. Even though I am a tall guy and somewhat large, the Fiesta had plenty of room. And, there are "Slightly" more tuning options than what the 2.3L can muster.

The Fiesta Hatchback is cheaper than a Focus Hatchback.


They were gonna stick me with a sedan. I looked up the VIN to see where they were pulling it from. I called them back to cancel getting that car. Whoever decided tan/black interior color scheme would look good is a retard.

I am fine with the auto. Besides, it comes with the Sync system + the premium audio system. The auto will get better gas mileage too since it is a 6-speed and I am not having to pay the transportation costs.
