VEHICLE STORY

I bought my car in September of 2014. I needed a car for school, but I wanted it to have a manual transmission so that I could learn on it, and I greatly despised driving my dad's automatic Volvo because I felt so disengaged from the vehicle. After searching for a month, I finally found my car at a dealership. I had went to the dealership to buy a 2005 Mazda 3, but then found this one that had just showed up in the lot within a week. It had an engine rebuild, and had a few minor issues, but nothing to stop me from buying the car. I bought it at 242k miles, and am now at 248k as of April 2015. I use it to drive 25 minutes to school and back, as well as 10-15 minutes to work. I enjoy going on cruises every now and then when the weather is good, and had a lot of fun my first year driving in the snow. I did get in an accident where I understeered into a curb while trying to take corners too fast in snow (learned my lesson), and it broke my rim and threw my wheel out of alignment, and it was a $120 repair, which isn't bad but could've been spent elsewhere. I don't plan on doing TOO much to my vehicle due to mileage, and me wanting a newer Legacy/Impreza, but am currently working on doing a full audio setup in the car.
