Default I just done traded in the Hyundai

It's gone. Good Riddance. Soyonara. Adios amigo.


Traded it in for a 2013 Toy Corolla with 32k miles on it. Sticker was $14,991 and final price was ~$18,5.

Were there cheaper, brand new, vehicles on the lot? Sure. They didn't have power door locks, power windows, nothing.

If it was strictly for my usage, I wouldn't have cared. But, I'm going to use it for Lyft and Uber and other services that may make their way into Tucson.

Now, I need to make sure I work enough hours to pay the insurance, too. Need to find something cheaper. lol.

Also, lifetime maintenance at 5k miles/6 month intervals. It's really just an oil change, topping off fluids, and rotating tires. Still, free is free.

It was mostly the GAP insurance. I'd rather have it, and walk away not owing anything, than not have it and foot the entire bill.

It was already marked down from $18k to $14k. Plus, they got me a ridiculously cheap payment.

Did you do something wrong in fuelly? I hope so lol 12.9 mpg isn't something I would use as a cab.

Researching on the forums is leading me to believe that it's working as designed. Needs more than 3 fuel-ups before it registers correctly.

Believe me, I was livid when I first saw it. The onboard computer is currently telling me I get 26 MPG.

Hmm mine worked first time. I filled up and reset my trip. Next time I refueled it and punched my numbers it gave me just about what I've gotten every other time.
