Yep, we’re on the hunt for a new vehicle. My sweet, wonderful 2001 Jetta, Brigetta, has seen her better days. She’s got hail damage, a banged up passenger-side headlight from a fender bender and the ‘check engine’ light that used to turn on for me every once in a while just stays lit now. It’s time to look for a new car.
We’ve never had a vehicle we could fit Everett and the two dogs at the same time, so we’ve decided on something with third-row seating. My husband, Marc, is pretty dead-set against mini vans, so that leaves us with an SUV. I like the Chevy Traverse and the Acura MDX. Marc wants to look at the Dodge Journey – and I think a Toyota something or other. We’ll see what we can do here.
Here’s what I’ve learned about myself: I couldn’t care less about vehicles. I mean, I want one that works and has enough space for us. Other than that, I’m pretty good to go. Thank God Marc used to sell cars and is generally an enthusiast of the four-wheeled type, so I’ll let him do all the hard work. I’ll take the keys when all is said and done, please and thank you.
If you have a third-row SUV that you love, please let me know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
