A couple weeks ago, we finally made the plunge and bought a new (to us) car. I have been driving around a 2008 Hyundai Eantra since I bought it new in August of 2008. It worked great to finish out my college years and our first year or so of marriage. However, with a car that small it makes it virtually impossible to go to Costco and get dog food in the same trip. Since we live 20 miles from any good store, it's not a trip that we can just make easily without burning a good amount of fuel. So the less trips I have to make the better.
I needed a vehicle that would allow me to hit Costco and other stores in the same trip and not have to go back several days in a row just to get everything we needed.
So, anyways, we have been looking for an SUV for about 6 months or so now, and finally found one that we like and that was in our price range. We had to do a little haggling, but we finally got them to where we wanted it and drove home with it the next day.
A 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. It is a year older that my car but had 12,000 less miles. It has some great storage area in the back and has plenty of leg room, even with a car seat in the back.
I love it, and it has been so nice to drive it lately! Just another thing crossed of my 101 in 1001 list!
