Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default I bought a new vehicle

I had to replace my totaled out Accord so today I bought a 2017 Equinox AWD with 61k on it,,with employee discount I got it for a sweet $13,500 and some change out the door.
I tried to buy a few Hondas off the auction sites but got outbid past retail on them because there seems to be a used car shortage now too,,everything is going over what book value was 2 or 3 months ago,,,,lucky for me we took this one in 2 months ago and my boss is nice enough to let me have it for cost.

I do plan on putting a 1.75 inch lift on the front and 1 inch on the rear after the GM warranty expires in 40,000 miles,,just a little extra for getting around in the snow

hopefully no more deer hits for awhile

I got a good deal for sure,,,working at a dealership has it's advantages.
After driving it a few days I'm getting more used to it,,kind of the best of both worlds because it drives like a car but you sit up up like higher like a truck,,not as high as my Silverado but high enough for better visibility.,

I like the color too Pogo,,there isn't a lot around this color but it's one of my favorites on this model,,we had a gray one which I like too but it was 1,000 dollars more,lower miles but not in as nice of condition,,I detailed this one for the lot a month and a 1/2 ago and it was clean,,local trade that we sold new and serviced,,a creampuff for sure.

I looked an RDX online,,it was a beauty but the gas mileage was terrible,the Equinox gets 26 average between town and the highway and I drive 40 + miles one way to work so fuel economy is a factor.
I may a program that you plug in the OBD2 port and improves the gas mileage by up to 5 mpg and gives you some better shift points as well
