New Car

tags: car, Eclipse, died, Prius

So i've been slow with posting... But a lot's gone on.

My car died. I had a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse. It died a horrible death. Now i have good car, a 2004 Toyota Prius.

To be honest, i didn't really like the Eclipse. It was sporty and that's cool, but i was outliving that part of my life. And i know this will sound odd, but the door and dash board were too thick. I just felt there was wasted space and a poor overall design.

The Prius on the other hand is a car, unlike the Honda Civic, designed to be a hybrid from it's initial conception. It's electric motor doesn't just assist the engine, but can also drive the car on it's own.

Other plusses include not having to get up as i leave the car; i just swivel to the left. It's also 4 door, so i can accommodate my friends better. Did i mention it get's 51 MPG city and 60 MPG highway?

Jump Failed

tags: car, Eclipse, tow
The jump failed. My insurer provides roadside assistance, i.e. a tow to a garage. The flatbed took my car and i to a Bethesda Aamco, which i requested. They'll look at the car this afternoon. I'm at work. Mark (what a guy) will pick me up later.
