    Welp, the celica i bought turned out to be a POS Lemon(No i didn't end up paying a dime on it, dispute through CC company for fraud purchase)......So i did this the right way...

    My dad's good friend runs a Chevy dealership(my Uncle use to run the place about 2 months ago)..So i went to look at some cars up there..

    Well there was a Beautiful 2000 Ford Explorer Limited wih 61982 on it and the sticker was 14995.....So i drove it and i twas so sweet. ....Keep in mind i was driving a 1991 4 runner with 227982 miles........I never even considered looking at a Ford before..but this car is loaded.....Its the top of the line Explorer and retailed for 37k.....Leather, Heated Seats, Power Seats, Heated Mirrors, Power mirrors, Power Sunroof...i mean everything...Mint, and i mean MINT condition interior...Beautiful Blue Color....

    So i said i wanted it....Sticker price 14995....Friend Hook up price....11,100..so i said hellz yea ..i also picked up a 3 year warranty at Emplyee cost....

    They gave me 700 for my 4 Runner<cry>

    Holy shit. The car is about 5 years old now and it has lost about 26,000 Dollars? Holy shit that is shitty resale value. If honda's were like that, I would be driving an S2k right now.

    That is not really true. I got 15-21 mpg with my 2004 Silverado ext 5.3l. I have seen some exploders get worse than that.
