New Corolla owner

Just picked up a 2006 Corolla CE, stripped to the bone w/ MT.

I'm a father/husband/attorney in McKinney, Texas, which is about 20-90 minutes north of Dallas, depending on the time of day.

I'm happy to have found this site...hoping it will help me to make the most out of my car.

Well well, you got a new one, eh. Hopefully you can make the most of it, because Toyota sure hasn't acted like that's there goal with it.

You'll have to clue me in on

You'll have to clue me in on why that is, though I'm sure I'll find a thread on the subject eventually.

The car does seem to be a bit of a black box, if that's what you mean. We'll see...

Ahhh...lucky me. Oh

Ahhh...lucky me.

Oh well...gives me more of a challenge, I guess. Besides, the baby seat would be more of a b@!*$ to fit in the back of a pre-'03 model than it is in this one.

Sucks the way cars keep getting increasingly...bloated.

alternatively...

F(averageamericanwaistlineSize) = carSize

...which, BTW, = me annoyed that the new Corolla is tank-sized compared to the original Camry.

Still...baby seat. And hybrids seem a little too George Jetson for my tastes.

I would say: "It depends on

I would say: "It depends on what the judge has for breakfast on the day you're supposed to show up."

Feel free to PM me.
