Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Didn't get the job in Washington, so there went that. Might move to Arizona if I actually follow through this time. Looking into goi g to school tho, wanted to do biology, but fuck going to college in the US, so looks like a MA in Old Norse in Iceland or Germany it is
If you cant afford US, you probably wont be able to afford Iceland.

Hush, I'd rather try to make it work in Iceland than pay $50k in tuition here in the US.

Just sucks tho that Euro schools don't start schools years till August, so I have to apply in the up coming months, and then wait forever. I'd love to do marine bio in Norway, but their bachelor level classes are taught in Norwegian. I mean no duh, but that barrier is what complicates things. As opposed to goi g for language studies, but that's a virtually useless degree, even tho it intrigues the fuck outta me.

I heard japanese universities added courses in English for most subjects in recent years.

Maybe we should make this thread into "How's your day" thread, so at least we would have something to talk about

Why do so many of you have Cruzes smh. If the US market ones have the same running gear as the Australian ones you should sell them immediately.

I got my license late in my life. Like I got it last year. Lack of money and having no car to practice on was the issue. I didn't even have the money for an instructor, so it took time. The Chevy Cruze is a good first car imo.

I don't know if Han is driving a Hatchback but mine is the Sedan version, which was manufactured in Lordstown Ohio before GM sold it off, so the car I drive is nothing like the Australian version. The car is discontinued in the US, but is still being made in Brazil.

By standards its not as nice as a BMW or Porsche, sure, but overall its still a neat car that's fun to drive and gets me to point A to point B no problem. The auto stop/start feature is annoying tbh, but thankfully there's a work around if you don't own the 2019 model. I can just put it on L6 and the car won't use that function since it only works on D. The 2019 model has an off button for the auto start crap but you have to press that off button every fucking time.

Maybe when I have the money I'll trade it for a more premium car and not even go for a monthly option, but right now I'm still paying monthly for this fucker and I'd like to pay it off.

Honestly I'm extremely lucky to work for another aerospace company, especially since it pays better than the last one. I would be fucked if I was unemployed right now.

Nah when they're running they're a good daily driver; fuel economy and driver comfort is solid. So if they have an actually reliable engine/gearbox (unlike the Aus delivered ones) keep it. The ones here just get problems all the time as they're manufactured by Daewoo, happens with a lot of brand new upper mid market cars actually (Holden Cruze/Captiva, Ford Endura, etc.)

Honestly getting a reliable daily driver for a good price is the best financial decision you can make as far as cars go, a lot of people fall into the trap of financing a brand new LandCruiser or something ridiculously expensive as a first car and not only end up dinging up a fancy car while they learn, but dig themselves in debt for a pretty good chunk of their late teens-mid twenties. Also congrats on getting the car and license my dude. It's really hard to come up with the funds to do it on your own.

Thanks. The car is good overall. Not the best though since it had and still can have its fair share of issues in the future. But hey, no car is perfect.

I'm also ahead on my car payments. I got the car certified pre-owned for around $16,000, I put down $2000 down payment when I bought it last year, so around $14,000 is how much I had left when my billing cycle started.

I currently now owe around $10,000, and that number is going to get lower. If all goes according to plan, I should have the car paid off by late 2020.

Cruzes are everywhere cause they're affordable and easy to maintain.

My mom used to have a '14 Cruze. It was a good car but to me the steering wheel was way too small, interior was rather small for a 4-door sedan, and it severely lacked the power that other sedans at the time had. It also had issues cause of a recall on GM cars from this time period. My Camaro is a 2014 and thankfully I have had no problems at all with that recall.

She traded the Cruze in for a Malibu after about a year and that car was way better in every category.

Every summer the Workshop I used to work at gets 2-3 Cruzes in with Coolant problems and subsequent Head Gasket/Engine Failure. I think we really lost out on Build quality compared to you guys lmao

I'd rather trade for a different car than swap the engine. You don't seem to realize that if I do that, my insurance will go up like crazy.
