#727 of 797 Mazda test drive
Feb 24, 2013 (8:59 am)
My wife got a $25 test drive offer on any Mazda.
I may go try a Mazda6 or a 3 SkyActiv. Last time I went to drive a 3 they brought the wrong car! A 2.5l instead of the 2l.
Here's the catch - it was a direct email to my wife. She used to own a 626 but that was years and years ago. I own a Miata and did not get it, go figure.

Someone over on FatWallet got that offer too; no report on what they may have signed up for to get the offer. The few times I've signed up for info with various automakers, I've only gotten generic "spam" and nothing fun.

She also got an invite for a Jaguar event and we are not sure how.
Funny thing is I signed up to get info on several lux brands a while ago, including Jag, so no idea why it is going to her.
Maybe because they are launching AWD and they know she has a Forester?

One of these would fit nicely with the laptop station (that I don't have either).
Craftsman Creeper Seat, Mechanics Adjustable
On clearance at KMart, $79.88, down from $140. No free shipping on clearance items though and I don't see a free ship to store option.
And there are lots of "Mechanic's Tool Sets" up to half off and more, next door at Sears online, tonight only. Deals end at 7 am Central Time Monday the 25th.
You can save $2,197 on the Craftsman 136PC Professional Use Mechanics Tool Set.

Have already printed mine and hopefully will go over on Wednesday for my test ride. The $25 will be nice to take the wife out for dinner with.

Isn't the Emerald Club with National, not Hertz?

Good reviews. Was $25, now $9.49 from Newegg

Yep, my bad. Hertz has #1 Club as I recall seeing. Those "better" cars we do not transport but some of the others did drive some new Mercedes from Tampa to Lauderdale back in December and said they were so sweet! A C300 and a GLK 450 they said...just wish I had been working then! There's 3 vehicles I'm dying to try...the Verano, Sentra and Jetta but so far, these have eluded me but I've let the others know that I would really really like to try these when we do get 'em. Also yesterday I had a new Escape again but a co-worker was saying how much he wanted to try it. So I just gave it to him, didn't matter to me even though they do drive nice and he was thrilled. A little give and take goes a long way. He did have to stop & put some gas into it though which he wasn't pleased about. And I had never done a Equinox yet so I was happy. Prefer the smaller Captiva better though. But the Sirius/XM put me in a great mood and it's so much easier as I don't have to mess with cds or aux cords...not too bad but one has to be careful about leaving stuff in these cars. One lady left her cell...luckily the other group was still there so they retrieved it. One guy left a cushion, another a jacket. And we've has to go back to pick up a phone cord charger once in Orlando already. So now, we have a checklist before we leave any destination to make sure nothing gets left behind.
I miss work today...never thought I'd ever say that again...but I do!
