    One of the managers here has a new SE and he' averaging over 39 MPG on a 30+ one way drive to the plant and has seen over 40 at times. Very impressive for a mid size car like that.

    That's great to hear. Her commute is 25 miles one way. Morning is highway speeds (50-70) and afternoons slower due to traffic but around 40/45ish.

    Based on what Jacob is seeing she should get some really good mileage out of the car.

    Deal fell through. Couldn't get the numbers to line up where we wanted them too.

    It was affordable but we didn't want to push our budget too far.

    Oh well. Time to make love to the Mazda. Hopefully it knows how close we were to leaving it there last night it'll behave now.

    Plenty. We went to the closest one and have no problem with them. They weren't push, holding stuff hostage (ie. keeping our keys/license), etc. There are few more within a 20-30 minute drive. Honestly we can probably make it to every toyota dealer in the Phx Metro area within 30 minutes.

    I figured there would be. There are 3 here and there were a ton in San Antonio. Might be worth checking around. Camry is selling OK but the sedan market is still soft.

    Dealer called back. Got it for 2500 down and 299 a month.

    Not ideal, but we're washing 6k in negative equity and it's lower than our payment now. Payoff on the Mazda still was 33 months out. Spending a bit more on the Camry but no breakdown concerns and unexpected 300 dollar repairs.

    Hahaha. You're welcome Mike.

    It was almost 9pm when we got home. Need to take it back and have the detailer do a better job on it. The new car film they peel off left marks when it was peeled off. Gonna get a better detail on it and remove the dealer branding. I hate cars with dealer logos on the back of them. Yeah I know its advertising but it just annoys me to see it.

    I'm sure glad she was there though. I would of purchased the Blue Camry LE instead of the SE if they had the LE in the darker interior. Turns out the LE was a different hue of blue. Blue Crush vs Blue Streak Metallic.

    We now have two Toyotas in the driveway that are 30 years apart in age.

    Looks good Tim. I saw one at the auto show that was in a dark blue green color, something Mica. That was gorgeous. I like the blue you got too. It's really sharp in the sunlight.

    I know what you mean about the dealer stickers/plates on the cars. I was relieved that they didn't slap one on the 86. The dealer that received it has these HUGE plastic chrome plates they stick on the back. Something like 2" by 5" and they always put them in the worst spots & usually crooked. At least they don't drill holes in the body and install the plates with Barrell nuts anymore.

    Now the funny shit.

    I filled out the TFS financial stuff first and also did the Costco auto stuff.

    Got a call from the Costco guy Monday​. Went in and saw him, talked to him Monday.

    Set new appointment Tues night with him. Get there and he was busy. He hooked us up with another sales guy and the sales manager (old Costco program guy).

    Initially we said no. I told the new sales guy (and texted the original one) the decision. New sales guy called back and we were able to come to terms and walked out last night with it.

    Today at just after 9am I get a call from the dealer. I answer thinking they need something stupid. Nope, it's original sales guy asking if I'm still interested in the car. I ask him if he's talked to sales guy #2 he pawned us off on or the sales manager. He said no. I proceeded to say well we came to an agreement and we left last night with it.

    Then again...at 11:30 this morning I try another call from the dealer. Answer again and its the SAME ORIGINAL SALES GUY ASKING IF IM STILL INTERESTED.

    I proceed minorly lose my shit and ask him to please speak with his sales manager and not to call again.

    Yet again...

    Goddamn Robert called from the dealer asking if I'm still interested in buying the Camry. Seriously they need to up their CRM game.
