New appreciation for my Focus
I had a business trip to Boston recently. Hertz Gold had a GMC Denali reseved for me. Not being a fan of SUVs, I asked if they had something else. "How does a 2013 Jetta sound?" Sounded good to me.
Honestly? It was the most boring car I've driven in years. Boring to look at. Boring to sit in. Boring to drive. No style, inside or out. Just plain and bland. A transportation appliance.
Yes, I know rental cars don't have the goodies like my Focus Titanium does. But the rental Cruze and Focus I had last year would run circles around this Jetta. In fact, that generic Focus SE rental in San Francisco last year was a leading reason why I ended up buying my Focus.
