I was forced into buying a new car when I was rear ended and my car totaled a month ago. I happily owned a 2004 Scion XB limited release in hot lava that I preorder in January of 04 and received in April of that year. I put many relatively care free years and miles on that car and it still looked new. The only thing that made the sting a little less was that the guy that hit me was driving a beautiful Porsche. It took me a few weeks to find a car that was within my financial means and a vehicle that I really wanted .
