A thing has been done....


Recommended Posts

Hey all.  Sorry I've been away for so long. Life has taken some very very weird turns for me in the last 8 months and I've been in some bad places.  I'll update you on all of that in another post.

In the meantime.....If you remember, I've been driving my partner's father's 2014 Cruze since November 18.  We took over the loan when we took the car and in May I got tired of the monthly payment so I just paid off the remaining $3.3k. We're keeping the Encore for now. It just passed 100k miles and has been great for us. It's in excellent condition, so we expect to have it for another 50k miles or so.

After the payoff, once he got the title, we transferred the Cruze into my name so that I could quickly trade it if I found something I wanted to replace it with.

Yesterday that something was found and I pulled the trigger.  I pick it up on Wednesday.  I'm not going to tell you what it is or give any hints.  If you're friends with me on Facebook you can't guess if you've seen any of my posts there.

So guys, what did I get?

@ocnblu Got it. 3G is the first two digits of the VIN.  3 is country code Mexico and G is for GM.  So it was a Mexican built GM and there were only two of those on the list, the Avalanche and the EXT.

There's a place I'm looking at near work that it's their specialty and it's all they do.  They'll do a descaling and then rust proof it. It's $596 and includes underbody and all body insides. They inc

I was thinking XT3 since it is closer to Encore sized.

Anyway, welcome back, Drew...we've missed you!

Interesting, but incorrect assumption of criteria.

Drew talked about having more room for family, so that is why I went with the XT5, but I totally get the XT4 thinking.

Agree totally , Drew has been MISSED Big Time!!!

Welcome back Drew, so glad to have you posting again.

Family with room auto, Facebook has images not available or shared to limited set of people. 

🤔

He did talk about a Crewcab truck at one time and like the avalanche. 

So if not a Demo'd discounted XT6, could it be an Escalade EXT or F-150 crew cab? Or did I go cold?

Guess the logical next question is did you go car, CUV/SUV or Truck?

I'll make you math.  You should know my fleet. The Cruze will go away.  Once the new vehicle has joined the fleet and the Cruze is gone, my cylinder count in my driveway will be 25% higher than it is today. That should narrow the list down slightly.

4+4+8=16 now

4+8+8=20   25% more

so a V8 replacing a 4, keeping the Encore and Toronado. 
my guess is the GLS or Durango.

Durango, GC, F-150 or EXT all have 8 with no turbo. :) 

I am guessing F-150 with my Backup being Durango.

I was thinking a full-size truck or SUV would have trouble fitting in your driveway (thought it was steep/narrow and required a turn at the bottom to get in the garage), but then I remember you had an Avalanche previously.

The Toronado goes in the garage, but even if it didn't, this would not fit.

I'm still going w/ the largish 3 row NA-V8 SUVs...Durango or previous gen GLS... smaller than the BOF full size SUVs and more manageable.

The 3G makes me think Escalade EXT which had 3G cell connectivity. 🤔

Wonder what other auto's in that list had 3G........
