ranger is gone...kinda

ive been lookin at a lexus is300 for the past week i almost bought it on friday until i looked at it closely and saw the drivers side fender had been repainted and new headlight on the driverside so it was in a wreck. I have been lookin for a new car now for a little while but then my parents said they dont want me having a car payment while in college so my dad since he doesnt drive far to work he would take my truck and ill take his 40mpg scion xb. Its an 06 with 50k he bought it new and bought the extended warranty so its covered for awhile. Im not going to rice it out but its gona look sick i guarantee that and oh i still have the mustang so i dont care how slow the xb is

oh yea no doubt! i got a friend with one of them, he says the same thing. 35-40 mpg is awesome, but i don't care much about gas anyways.

You know, I drive my friends XB and I love the thing. It's pretty well made for the price and has a lot more options then my truck did for the same price. I'm not going to say it's pretty but I've done 105 in it on the way home from concerts and it sticks to the highway nicely.

Hell ya man.

But no seriously... I've seen some decent xBs. Congrats for sure. I don't think they are nearly as bad as Honda Elements.
