If something happens to my yaris...and i buy new (doubt it because i hate payments) a new Chevy Spark Active

Tho most likely Ill pick up a Tercel because i love them and want another one.

The plan is keep the Yaris forever...as its the first car ive bought brand new, and of which been paid off. Shit will happen I know it wont be around forever but damnit I want to get my 16k out of it!

This was also my plan when I bought my brand new Yaris 8 years ago. When i drove it out the STEALERSHIP i thought wow this is a neat car i will keep it. But 8 years on the car is showing it's age.NOTHING LAST FOREVER.

The great thing about being in Australia is there is so many choices of cars and manufacturers to choose from. I noticed in America you guys do not.

Manufacturers like Renault, Seat, Skoda, Peugeut, Citreon, Tata (indian manufacturer) Proton (Malaysian Manufacturer) and Chinese brands that are not doing so well here. Cars like the Suzuki Swift and an authentic Mazda 2 hatch, and so many more.

I really wish Suzuki still sold their cars in the U.S. Their partnership with GM finally did them in when GM gave them nothing but garbage from their Daewoo division to rebadge and sell. Now, to Americans, the S badge only brings to mind Korean chintz, even worse than Kia and Hyundai's reputation at the time.

I've always liked the looks of the Sonic. The green car is a Spark. I think the new ones look pretty good. The last generation was so awkward looking. I still wouldn't buy one. I don't trust what remains of Daewoo yet (Spark, Sonic, and Cruze are all Daewoo).
