What can I say. It's great to be driving in something that isn't a hunk of junk. My old truck was a 2003 bought in July 2003 and started having problem in September 2003.
The dealer replaced the ENTIRE exhaust system (converter, mufflers and pipes), ECM, A/C compressor, rebuilt a transmission, put in a new transmission, knock sensor and some other things. Well, here recently the fuel guage became messed up and it wouldn't switch into 4 wheel drive and it was losing power again. AAAHHH!!! Only 6,000 miles of warranty left so we traded it in. Got a Mazda Tribute (suv) Wonderful so far.

So, I'm taking what is left over from the sale of my beloved Putterbug and putting it into a bank CD so it doesn't get spent. Hopefully soon I'll get another. So, don't think y'all got rid of me that easy. :wink:

Yeah I had to sell it. I needed some down payment money for a new truck. Mine was falling apart and the warranty was almost out. I was tired of fighting with General Motors to have it fixed so, I traded it off. It had a dented bumper from someone rear ending me and taking off and some hail damage as well.

My chiropractor told me today to take it easy for a few month to give my back some time to rest again.
Going to save and sell stuff again and hope to have another one soon.

Sorry to hear you had to sell Putterbug :(
But glad to hear you'll still be hanging with us :p
Well, look at it this way... you'll have your 650 soon!

What are they not a good thing? I've never messed with one. I figured it would be a good way to put the money somewhere and get some interest and not have to worry about Billy buying chrome with it.

If your REALLY need the money for an emergency and you try to get it before the maturity date of the CD, you pay a penalty! And with the low interest rates its not something I consider worth having a penalty attached to it. For the same interest rate (and sometimes bettter), you could do a money market account and not have any penalties.

My wife (a banker) puts our 'mad' money in some kind of CD's that allow early withdrawal without a penalty. She just upgraded them the other day. They only get like, 1.7%, but it's better than the .07 you'll get in a savings account.

Some of the banks offer that around here - they call it Liquid CD's.
