Something like this, then?

^ How do you like your SHO? I'm trying to convince the CFO (wife) to let me get a 2013 in another year.

I'd love it if I could get Ford to do the TSB on the transmission. Still fighting that battle. 99.5% of the time it is the best car I have ever owned. That one time a week (literally happens once) it reminds me of the struggle to get it fixed.

If Ford did something about that rear-end I'd really like them.

How many miles are on it and how many do you log each year?

SHO's are awesome. They look like a normal Taurus, but they're FAST.

Default My Ride: 2011 Kia Optima LX

This is my current car, my first new car after owning a '98 Accord, '96 Camry and '95 Taurus...all beaters lol. I graduated college and started a new job, so it was time for a new car. Metal Bronze 2011 Kia Optima LX (build date July 2011) picked this one up in Oct 2011, currently has 31,400 miles on it.

First night of having the new car, was the late October random snowstorm in New York City, if anyone remembers lol:


Much nicer and dryer weather, all cleaned up and shiny:


Parked across from my house behind my old Taurus lol:


Few months ago at my old office's parking garage with the Empire State Building in the background:


Freshly cleaned and waxed whip at a local strip mall:


The Kia at the Eastgate Mall Sears last summer (2012) out in Cincinnati's suburbia, was out there for a six week work training assignment....so naturally I drove there lol:


My car with downtown Cincinnati Ohio in the background, Summer 2012:


Here she is awaiting a front brake install at my cousin's shop a few days ago:


Little bit of fun modification with a nice chrome accent strip on the trunk, new license plate frames and a little bit of TROLOLOLOLO on the car too haha:


I love the car, it's been a great expereince for my first new car and I got a great deal on it too for only $20k. After this next summer is over, I'm considering trading her in for a gun metal grey 2013/2014 Honda Accord EX Sedan

I cringe at the presence of the front license plate on an otherwise very well-maintained and clean car.
