Just got me an 06 hatch Grand Touring

Well let me start off by introducing my self, I am 31 and have been driving a 97 Portege 1.8 5spd for almost 3 years as a daily driver so my gas guzzling truck can rest. Well come to find out my wife is pregnant with number 2 so I need a more reliable car Have been trying to find a 3 sedan for around 12K with under 50K miles. Extremely hard, they keep selling before I get a chance to buy. I drive by a Kia dealer that has an 06 Copper Red Mica Grand Touring 5 door, with leather and Bose and sunroof with only 39K miles, but they want $17,990. I drive it knowing it's not in my budget. Well being last day of July they want to deal, so okay, they come off 3K and give me $2,900 for my protege (I only paid $3,500 3 years ago) so now the car is close enough to my 12K :P number. So I am know a proud 3 owner ready to rip up the forums!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Wow, you scored on both ends. Rarely do people do so well on the trade and new purchase. I too came from a Protege (00 ES) and now have an 06 hatch. You got a great car and copper red is beautiful.

Congratulations! I'm sure you'll enjoy the 3 and this forum.
