You all have to be tired of this by now... Problem?

No real need for an explanation... Not that happy with my Volkswagen and my sister found an $800 Suzuki Sidekick (auto) in good shape to drive around in. Happens that I wake this morning and see this on Craigslist so I call them up and go see it. http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/8141/image1yt.jpg ...

We'll see what's up when I fill it up for the first time. Thank you all for the well wishes for my sister! :) For an automatic, it...

Normal driving videos. Got any?
