Bye Old Car, Hello New Car

This is my old Kia Rio 2003 1.3 L automatic transmission, which was built like a tank, seriously. I bought this car from a used car dealer because of the hassle of buying new cars in 2006. It was almost like a station wagon, very roomy at the back and could carry huge items with the back seats folded.

I loved this car. But a couple of years back, it almost blew up of overheating. It took two grand to repair the damage, but alas, my car lost 1/5 of its power later....
And this is my new car, a Proton Preve 1.6 L, also an automatic. Truthfully, I bought this car on a whim, applied for it and got it in less than 5 days. This is rather amazing because it might took a couple of months to get a new car in 2006!

I may miss the gray monster. The places we went and the memories we had.

Time to make new memories....

The car is amazing. We just returned back from an outing in it, someone else drove it for me though.

I slept along the way.

I named mine Dexter (as in Poindexter) due to it’s GPS being annoying at times (long story). It also goes by the name “Sucks at autoparking” and when in the dealership, “Money Sink”.

Helios is a great name! You can introduce him as your other self, and tell people it runs down people who displeases you. Haha!

Woops. That was meant for the other blog post. Must've mixed my windows. Feel free to delete this one. :)

It's sad that you had to say goodbye with your Kia Rio because you've had it for more than five years. It was quite great for a secondhand car, huh? It simply proves that the car dealer you've met back then was really reliable. Anyhow, you current car looks great. Shiny in black! May you create lots of wonderful memories with this car too! Congrats! :)

It really feels sad to let go your old car. It's normal because you’ve had it for a long time. But, that's life. Cars really come to that point. The best thing to do now is to enjoy your new car. I'm sure you're going to have lots of awesome moments with your Proton Preve too!

Congrats on new car purchase! Overheat issues aren't cheap repairs. Your new car is lovely, though. I hope it will live long and you'll have more memories with it. Don't stress the engine and drive it with care. =) Basil Glenn @LexusOfLansing.com

Your new car is definitely very nice. And it is probably a reflection on the wise financial decisions you've made and the lifestyle choices that give you a much stronger credit foundation that accounts for the quicker turnaround in your approval for the vehicle. Congratulations! I hope your new car lasts as long as your Kia did, is it as well made as Kia?
