It's the kind that can't be bothered to go around ... so it goes right through you, leaving you thoroughly chilled in the process.
My lovely bride & I spent several hours out in it yesterday, looking at used SUVs as possible replacements for her car. We dressed for the temperature, but not for the wind. Our mistake; never really did get warmed up for the rest of the day. After we'd been home for a couple of hours & got warm again, we both fell asleep on the couch. Ah well.
The first vehicle we drove was a Kia Sorento with all the bells and whistles: sliding powered sunroof, dual climate controls, the works. And halfway through the drive, steam started coming out from under the hood. Not a good sign.
Turns out it was just an improperly-fastened hose clamp. The windshield was cracked (that's quite common up here, due to the tons of gravel the Highway Dept spreads liberally on the roads in winter), and one foglight was loose in the bumper. Although they agreed to repair those things for us, Someone warned us away.
When we got home & researched the thing, the user reviews confirmed that the Sorento has great initial ratings, but once something goes wrong, they fall apart. Not good.
So we visited a multi-dealer used vehicle lot in mid-town. Once we explained what we're looking for, they showed us an Explorer which they'd just received but not yet serviced. I signed a form which places a hold on it for me, so that we get to test it as soon as they've cleaned it up and looked it over. IF it's any good, we get first crack at it.
There's no obligation, of course, but it looked like a diamond in the rough ... so we'll see in a few days if it's a worthy addition to the conglomeration of vehicles in my driveway.
The ladies are planning another shopping expedition today, but I get nothing out of visiting the mall (shudder). I'm not sure what the day will hold, but I'd bet something will present itself before long.
Y'all have a wonderful Sunday, and thanks for stopping by.
