    I thought I'd do a little self promoting and share my new ride with everyone.

    It's a 2010 Suzuki Kizashi. It rocks! It's got available AWD, 2.4L 4 cyl/185 horsepower. Automatic or manual transmission. (anyone wanna teach me to drive a stick ? icon_twisted.gif ) Keyless entry and push button engine. Luxury interior without the luxury price tag. Drives like a dream even in the Chicago snow.

    Mine is done in black though...

    Congrats there Jay. I know I enjoy my 2009 vehicle I got last year (and is about to get a wash today.)

    Keep warm there!

    I think you mean 2.4L, 4-cylinder engine. I have a 1.8L and that is how I came to think that's what you meant. also, in my search to make sure that your car didn't have the engine of a suped-up golf cart, I found this:

    Congrat's!
    It's a sharp little car.
    Suzuki hasn't had a lot of luck breaking into our market.
    Consumer Reports lists the SX4 as one of the 5 most overlooked cars available in the U.S.

    And I'm a huge fan of cars that still offer manual transmissions!
    6 speeds, too.
    Nice.

    Still has the new car smell. I love it. Been getting stuff to keep it clean too. I can drive it to the dealer anytime I want for a free car wash.

    By the way... congrats on the stick shift. All 3 of my vehicles are stick.
    I learned when I was in college and would have a hard time going back to an automatic....LOL

    Yup. the Kizashi is brand new for the 2010.

    The manual transmission easily shifts from drive, and I don't need a clutch. The gear shift lets me switch gears easily.

    Vrooooom

    I was very impressed with the SX4. Looks like this new ride is a winner too. Although the name sounds like my breakfast cereal.
