Default It was time...

I am sorry to say I no longer have a Dakota. My truck had over 186,000 miles on it and had more than its share of problems in the last year. I was working on it fixing one thing or another practically every weekend in the last few months and finally decided enough is enough. I never had the time I need to do anything else like work on my house, not to mention being real tired of the added expense of parts. I am also transferring to a different work location soon, and the new office is 32 miles one way from my house.

I loved my truck and will always miss it and remember it but I need something more reliable and better on gas so this past Monday I bought a good used lease turn-in 2013 Honda Civic. It's a great car so far and I hope it lasts me a very long time like my Dakota did. I sold my Dakota to Carmax last night. I learned a lot here and I hope I was able to help a few people out too. I really enjoyed the sense of community here and I may be back here from time to time to catch up on the Dakota world but for now I am done.

Jimmy

Jimmy, good luck with everything. Thanks for all the help you've given me. I own a Honda myself. Extremely reliable and that Civic will be night and day on gas.
