Hmmmm! Some interesting cars!
I thought I'd already responded to this thread,,,,,but I guess not.
Well, I traded in my 2009 Suzuki SX4, iAWD, Crossover. See pic.
At almost 40k miles, I had NO problems with the car. In 4WD, it would go almost anywhere.
I loved the little car and living out in the country, on sand roads, it was just right for me.
But, it was coming up on mandatory maintenance that was going to cost me over $500 at a dealership,
and there are NO dealerships left, in central FL.
The transition to the 2013 Kia Soul was almost a no-brainer. My car payments went down by a few dollars,
my insurance pmt went down by $30 per month, and my MPG went up by 3 to 5 mpg.
So as I said....."NO Brainer!".
If the Soul was a dog, it wouldn't be such a good deal, but it's a little Wildcat! It definitely OUT PERFORMS
the SX4, in spite of the fact that it's not 4WD.
If they ever come out with a Soul that's AWD, they will definitely have a top seller, especially in the Snow Country.
Cheers Mates! Y'all have a great 2013!
