We had been thinking for a while now that either we have to get rid of my truck or keep it till it dies forever.
It's a 2006 model and it had 204, 000 kms on it. While it had no serious problems, it had no warranty or anything left on it and its just a matter of time before something big goes wrong. So I had a service appointment in Drum on Tuesday and Neil was gonna drop off his quad at a friends shop, we thought we would just look at new trucks.
We didnt want a super fancy model cause we dont use most of that stuff anyways, so pretty plain. No sunroof, no sliding back window, dont need the navigation system, and all that. We seen two of the model we liked on the lot, either a really dark brown or white. I was okay with brown, but knida boring and Neil didn't want white, and they had a pretty green in a different model, so we asked the salesman if he can find a green one in the model we were loking at. We wanted a SLT, but next thing we knew he was driving a green truck around the corner and stops. He found a ST model, a little plainer but we decided it would do. It was on the boulevard not in the lot so we couldn't see it.
We went inside and did the financing and insurance and everything. We walked in at 1 and drove out at 5 with a new truck! We never expected to get the truck in the same day, we were only gonna look.
So far its pretty nice, a lot smoother than my old truck, but not sure if thats because its new or just better suspension. It doesnt have a temperature in it (that I have found yet) and I definitly miss that. I also prefer the console rather than the center seat this one has, and no fold down floor in the back seat, but I think I can live with that, not a big deal. Pretty fun to get a new truck when it wasnt expected!
