    I appreciate the input guys. I just needed some reassurance from folks I trust. The fuel economy will be a welcome relief.
    Low and behold, my lifelong streak of incredibly good luck continues. We might possibly need a new septic system. Waiting for the estimate now. Just got it. $950 for repair. $7800 for new system. Life is good. I still need the car.

    Do you have the aerobic or the lateral line system? What are they going to do for the $950 repair? If you have the lateral line system it is probably a rota rooter ream out. If so you can rent the machine and do it yourself for only the rental of the machine. The last one i rented was about $100 for the day.
    I know nothing about the aerobic systems, nor do I hope to. They are expensive and require yearly inspection and such.
    Wishing you the best in your sewer situation.

    Sorry JK. Lateral system. We have 2 tanks and this repair was beyond my pay grade. Money well spent and job well done.
    I'd almost rather go to the dentist than go through the car buying process. I've done neither in the last 20 years. Tomorrow I'm going to do some test driving at Toyota and Honda in Tyler. Great deal on a Dodge Dart here in town but they seem to be unreliable from my research. Inventory here is far less than what is available in FWD. I would rather spend my money here, closer to home. Wish me luck. Any additional advice will be appreciated.

    I drove a 2017 Hyundai Accent today at lunch. Base model rental car. 47,000 miles. It drove well for a go cart with a windshield. Perfect price. 99% sure I will buy it tomorrow.
    Any thoughts guys?

    From all I have heard they are a good car for the money.

    Honda or Toyota was what I wanted Barongan. Finding one in my price range with low mileage got a bit exhausting. Just making a simple inquiry about pricing keeps my phone buzzing Day and night. Human buzzards. The Hyundai salesman is low pressure and the car is in my price range. Hopefully my work schedule will allow me to sign and drive tomorrow.
