Our new car!
We bought a new car yesterday. We have been looking and looking and doing tons of research. We wanted a slightly used car from 2012 that was smaller than our mini van, but still roomy and had good cargo. I initially wanted a CRV, but you can't get those slightly used at all. There were none to be had. So we looked and test drove and researched some more. I wanted a third row, but not enough to want another big SUV or minivan. I wanted something with a rearview camera, a V6 engine and lots of cargo space. We narrowed it down to a Subaru outback, a CRV, or a RAV4.
This weekend we sold our minivan to some good friends and that was wonderful. We had a down deposit in hand and were ready.
On Monday our friend in the business called and said he had found a car for us. It's a white 2012 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited with only 14,000 miles on it. We were sold! We drove up to get it on Tuesday. I love it so much. It is so much fun to drive. It has power, but a cushioned ride. It corners so well. I can't tell you how awesome it is. The kids and Michael love it too. We are thrilled with our new family car.
