If all goes well it'll be getting traded in for a 2013 Dodge Dart with 33,000 miles...*fingers crossed*

Nice thought but I can't wait that long, I like my neon but I'm tired of putting money in it, gotta be replaced.

I would look into Pentastar V6 Avengers before the Dart. Performance-ly speaking. :P

Nah, not worried about performance. I drive like an old man most of the time lol, until somebody in front of me is driving less than the speed limit then I get very annoyed and skinny pedal gets to kiss the floor. I'm always trying to up my average mpg per tank so I tank it easy most of the time. Current record in my neon is 36.5 which I think is damn good for a 3 speed auto.

I just want something that looks good and is reliable. Been drooling over the darts for awhile now, so hopefully I everything works out in my favor and I can get it.

Well it's official, I've been given the green light from the dealership. Just have to wait two weeks for the Silver 2013 Dart SXT to be transferred from Austin, TX, to Baton Rouge, LA. Depending on what they give me for the neon I might hang on to it as a spare vehicle.

Been talking with the wife. Gonna fix the couple things that's wrong with the neon and she's going to use it to drive to work instead of our gas guzzler Yukon xl. Then I won't lose all the money I've put into it these past nine months.

This is the dart I'm getting.

Now see how long it is before the wife is driving the Dart, and you are back in the neon. There is a method to her madness. :twisted:
