I'm buying a brand new xB!
Don't get me wrong; the tC has been very good car to me. Transmission is okay, motor is burning oil to the usual high mileage mark & build up carbon other than that it's been good. I would say close to 80% of parts are still original OEM.
I need something more space and still under 20k mark. I don't wanna spend two grand to get the transmission rebuilt down the road when the car value would be way below that. Since it's still worth 4k-ish now; I owe about that on my current loan it would be wise to get outta of it before the major problems occur.
Least I'm not moving to a Kia!
