New Car? Nope.

Because I am so terribly sad about the car I owned for a 60 hours going back to the dealership, here is the story in short:

We made the deal for the new car based on getting 4500 in rebate from the government. You can only get the full 4500 if your car had a median MPG of 18 or below, ours was 18. The new car had to get 28+ median MPG. The new car, we thought, had 28. Nope, government said it was 27.

The car went back today.

I had to remove the pic from the post below, sorry, too painful.

I've seen a lot of news coverage about this and it seems the government once again has made a mess out of something that should have been simple. I'm so sick of these government programs.
