I mentioned last week that we’d been looking at new cars. Since our 4Runner only had 5 seats and baby coming this fall makes 6 we figured we’d better get a bigger vehicle.
We toyed with the idea of a minivan but decided that we wanted something with better gas mileage. Allan showed me a few different cars that would be good for us and my favorite was the Mazda5. Though when I say my favorite it’s misleading because I really couldn’t care less what I’m driving as long as everyone fits and it works!! Seriously give me the ugliest car on the planet and I wouldn’t care one bit.
I do like how the Mazda looks, though 🙂
This car is a 2009 with 30,000 miles on it. We traded in the 4Runner that day and the deal Allan got on everything was really good.
This is the first car I’ve used that is an automatic! It’s so odd to drive an automatic. It’s so easy. I feel lazy! ha
Want to know my favorite part of the new car? The sliding doors for the kids!
The only thing I don’t like is that the space in the back of the car for groceries is teeny tiny. My jogging stroller won’t fit in there. I use my jogging stroller every time we go to the park or arboretum or on short hikes so I’m very bummed about that 🙁
