Microblog Mondays – Wheelz

So exciting news – I bought a car.  Used but practically new.  It’s the first and only car I’ve ever owned.  It feels so good to be able to buy a car outright, no car payments pending. Thanks, mom!

It’s a 2016 Hyundai Tucson and I’m pretty happy with it.  We  also test drove a Mazda CX 5, Nissan Rogue and a Rav 4.  Honestly, they all drive about the same, plus or minus this or that.  But they’re all super popular in the small SUV market.  I actually was looking for a used Mazda CX5 but the Tucson was a lot cheaper and it had what we needed. It has enough room for my family and the dog and it’s so great to have air conditioning!  Yay!  It has a back up camera, which I must say is a little weird to use after decades of twisting and turning my neck.  It’s a relief to not have to drive that gas guzzling pickup anymore or struggle to find parking. And I’m so happy to have Bluetooth so now with a flick of a switch on my steering wheel, I can say call so and so and boom, I’m connected.  Very cool.  We’re all enjoying our new ride.

  1. Congratulations! Personally, I don’t see a reason to ever buy a new-new car…they depreciate so quickly and you can get such a great deal on a new-to-you one. And a backup camera! My new-to-me 2012 Subaru Outback doesn’t even have one of those! I love the Tuscon. Congrats on air conditioning, and what a lovely gift from Mom.

  2. Congratulations! We have a RAV4 and we love it! I never thought we were the SUV type (no kids, right?), but it is really nice having that extra room and height, and all the bells & whistles that go with it. 😉 Enjoy!

    • I liked the Rav 4 but it was actually more expensive than any of the other ones – great driver’s seat, stadium seating in the back. It must have been great when you were visiting family.
