Best Rental Car Ever...

Well, took my truck to the dealership today (Jerry Ulm Dodge in Tampa..good service), and they said they would be giving me a loaner car. Well, fine...I figure I'll get a Neon SXT or something, maybe a Stratus. Well, I get there this morning and when he hands me the key and says its the little red one over there...

I look, and this is sitting there...

How does it drive? Is it as quick as you thought it would be?

I haven't really gotten on it, but the one time I did...yeah...its quick. Wouldn't believe how it pulls even when you are in a gear or two too high...its not too bad.

Sorry boys, this is not the best rental car ever. In the 1960's Hertz rented Mustang GT350s for $17 a day.

1. I hope you didn't accidently take somebody's care
2. How much longer until your truck is ready (hopefully a couple days at least)
3. Does it still have the sticker on it?

Man, I'm jealous!

I'm not because for the most part, I have respect for the stealership having to resell it to someone, and 2, i don't want to pay for it if it breaks. Plus, I like the fact that they trusted me with it, and would like another one in the future should it be required.
