I had to run a trapline inside the Accent last winter. I carry an 8 pack of Lance wheat and cheddar crackers in the car for snacks when Iím trapping or hunting. One day while warming up on the trapline I noticed one of the pack was open, and there were crackers on the floor. When I turned on the heater, cracker crumbs started flying out the floor vent. I was parking the car in overgrown fields and mice must have found their way in. I caught 3 over the next 2 days.
I hammered a deer on I-80 with it last month. Was passing in the left lane when a big doe came over the guard rail. When it hit, it flew over the hood and roof and into a tractor trailer that was following me. It bucked the hood up, pushed the fender into the wheel, took out the ac radiator and left headlight assembly. I pulled over at the Renoldsville exit, hooked a come a long up to a guard rail post and pulled the fender away from the wheel. When I got home I took the hood off, jumped on the crease and straightened out the fender a little more. I had to buy a new light assembly. It was kind warm with no ac last month, went old school with the windows down.
My kids and wife make fun of me for driving this car. I said it has itís benefits....no one will park anywhere near you and everyone stays clear of you on the road. Just topped 100,000 miles last week. Gonna buy a new Subaru this spring, but Iíll sure miss my old beater.
