The Jolly Rancher is gone. Some words:
A first car, no matter the age, is a milestone. I was 23 when I bought this little nugget. It was loud, obnoxious, had dubious build quality, but it was mine. 40,000 kilometres and nearly a year later, I can’t say that I wasn’t lucky to own it.
But the boy racer appeal lost its lustre. The roads aren’t getting any better for the stiff suspension, it was loud, and it was a pain in the arse transporting anything. It was fun while it lasted, but it was time to move on.
So meet Gretel. A 2019 Alltrack Execline. So far: fuel economy is good, it’s very comfortable, and the sound system is kickin’. Expect a one month review in... Well, figure it out.
