Many of you have seen some pretty sweet rides zoom past on campus, or you might have stopped dead in your tracks to admire the dream car that caught your attention in the parking lot.
The question that comes to mind is: Who does that belong to and where can I get one of those?
The Cluster has tracked down a few of the owners of some of these sexy automobiles that have you salivating. They can tell you the real deal on what it’s really like to own one of these luxury cars.
Senior Kati Mogil is the owner of a black ‘06 Mustang that she has named Stella. Mogil purchased her car “back home at the Ford dealership in New Jersey. It was not my first choice. It was my second. My first choice was a Nissan 350Z.”
Even so, she absolutely loves driving this car around. When asked what makes her car sexy, she replied, “Because I drive it.” When asked about some of the cooler features of Mogil’s car, she said her Chi Omega sticker and her sound system are what stand out.
Junior Ashley Chackalayil drives a Lexus LX 470. “It’s just too special to be named,” said Chackalayil. The sexiest feature of the car for her is the grill.
“It was my first choice; I feel safer in it,” said Chackalayil. Though she feels like her car is dependable, the upkeep on the car is not so favorable. “It’s reliable, but expensive,” explained Chackalayil.
She would recommend a Lexus; “Though I may prefer something that didn’t guzzle gas,” said Chackalayil.
Senior Ernestine Dahn drives a BMW 330I. “The car is sleek; it’s black. It’s just a sexy car,” said Dahn.
“I have not named it yet. Technically, it is my father’s car. It’s mine for the semester, but it’s still his,” said Dahn.
One of the features that Dahn likes about the car is the computer-based system. “I really like the push-to-start feature. All you have to do is stick the key in the ignition and push start. Also, I love how it rides. It’s so smooth. Even when I stop abruptly, the car still reacts smoothly,” said Dahn.
Along with Chackalayil, Dahn also has some reservations about the cost of maintenance for her car. “The price of repair and upkeep is very expensive. When you have a luxury car, you really need to get a warranty on important parts, like the engine. Any little thing that goes wrong cannot be fixed like a normal car. You have to go to the dealership,” said Dahn.
These three ladies drive some sexy cars, but having these luxury cars does come at a price.
Remember that you get what you pay for the next time that you are wishing that you were behind the wheel of one of these sexy rides.
Though the maintenance and upkeep for these cars can get to be outrageously expensive, the bragging rights that come with these automotive beauties seem to make up for it.
