Grandma

Post by janet70 » Wed Sep 28, 2011 6:40 pm

I must be the Grandma of this group. I have owned "Rosie" the Prima Edizione since May and am just now about to reach 4000 miles! I live very close to work and do most of my shopping online, so I sure that figures in.
I love my little 500!

yea, you ARE a 'grandma'. I've had "Gumby" only since the end of July and have over 3,500 miles on him.

my wife wasn't totall onboard with my 500 purchase but now she loves it almost as much as I do. everywhere we go I get someone asking me about it and commenting on how cool it is and what a great color!

WE LOVE OUR 500 Sport!

Well, I may not be qualified as a 'GrandMA', but I have about 3,400 miles on my Sport and I picked it up May 11, 2011. Just got it's first oil change the 1st week of November. In my case, being retired is having a dramatic effect on miles driven.

I LOVE mine, also. Doing mostly boulevard type driving it gets 36-38 mpg in town. It's a 5 spd manual.

Yep, you're a Grandma. I got mine in March and have almost 18k on it. Thank goodness I don't drive it every day!
