Time To Go

It is time to replace the Corsica.

I realize that I've owned it for 10 years and we've just crossed the 100k milestone. But it needs some work to make it through inspection (plus a host of other repairs to keep it going). We have finally crossed the "not worth it anymore" point.

So what can possibly replace this classic, mostly reliable piece of mid-1990's engineering? I'm not sure yet. My daughter would like to just get another Corsica as a successor. A red one.

During the week I drive to work and park on the street in the city, so I don't want anything too new or too big or too nice. I like the idea of a hatchback to get more interior space for people, stuff, and a weekend run to Lowe's. I want keyless entry because the Corsica doesn't have it (and you can never have too many remotes). The internet tells me that all of these things combine to put me in the market for a compact crossover. That sounds interesting.

I'm on the lookout. The Corsica's inspection and registration run out at the end of May, so we'll probably wrap up the process before then. Probably.

If you're in the market for a pre-owned late model sedan with a V6 and a new driver's door, let me know. I've got one for sale that will make you the coolest kid on the block. It has worked for me for the past 10 years.

  1. Can I interest you in a gently-used '94 Beretta?
