I drove this today. I liked it, my son liked it, my wife didn’t. Happy wife, happy life, or whatever. No Challenger for me. I did prefer the automatic to the manual. And I did find it quite comfortable.

Lease financials were good. Wife doesn’t like the uncertainty of what happens when the car is turned back in when the lease is up. “Then you’ve paid 2 years for nothing!” It became a passive aggressive argument not worth having.

I’ll just keep plugging away on the Cougar and driving the Taco, which I noticed today is sporting evidence of dry rot on the 3 year old tires. I guess I should garage park it.
