Upon reflection


First it was the Toyota Venza that stole my heart, and almost my pocketbook.  I don't want to have to work that hard anymore.  Then it was the Rav4 I considered and put a sizable chunk of money down to hold.  I didn't love it, but it was affordable.  When it was determined that my husband could not comfortably squeeze his long legs into that vehicle, well, it was almost over for Toyota.


New on the showroom floor today was the Toyota Highlander.  To be sure, it's not a new vehicle for them, but in the last 3 days that I've been to that dealer, today was the first day it was on the showroom floor.  This one fell between the costly Venza and the affordable Rav4.  It came with better discounts.


And just like that, and the better part of my Saturday, now it's in my drive.

Lovely, suits you. I have a 2011 Escape and I regret it. Totally uncomfortable seats for me although mechanically its fine and it's cheap on gas. I've always had German cars and this was my first NA vehicle. Enjoy your ride... Ciao

Yay! congrats Rudee!
It's like a love story, when you know he's the one, there is no doubt left, and you just go for it!
Wishing you many enjoyable journeys in it, and, as they say here "May the road rise to meet you"!(good luck!)

My husband is looking for a new SUV. I agree with Knitty, car shopping isn't easy.

New car...new life. You're on the way, Rudee!

I like what Mimi said. I like the color and the style. Good job.

That's what we drive! And the same glorious sequence of events happened.... unaffordable at point of introduction several years back - but then when we were forced to replace a murdered car, there one was, just arrived in the dealership lot and perfect for us.

Very nice. Although I can't afford and don't need it right now, you've inspired me to look at some new cars.
