We got a new car!

Although we have been talking about getting a new car for almost two years now, this car was a rather quick buy. As many of you know we just put almost $6,000 into my subaru last year when the engine blew going up Parley's Canyon. Well, on Saturday after a nice relaxing day of skiing up at Deer Valley we were coming DOWN Parley's Canyon and my transmission decided that it was kaput! So we immediately pulled into the REI parking lot and contemplated on what to do--do we drive on it any longer, do we have it towed, do we leave it put and have someone pick us up, do we drive up into the mountains and push it off a very tall cliff? These were all thoughts that were going through our heads. Needless to say, we opted to drive to the nearest car dealership and turn that sucker in and get a new vehicle. Now, we had thought about buying a Nissan Rogue, but we had also thought about buying a Hyundai Veracruz, Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and a Honda CR-V. However, the closest dealership was a Nissan and we pulled in and set our eyes apon the Rogue. You are probably thinking--that was rather impulsive? AND, I would answer "yes" to a certain degree. We needed a new car bad and the subaru was on it's last leg. Had we decided to fix the transmission we would have had to put more money into fixing it than it was worth. Anywho, we now have a brand new car and Tim is in love with all of the nifty high tech options.

Addendum: If you look real close you can see little Gussy gazing out the driver's side window :)

Nice car! It does seem a bit impulsive but you thought it through enough to know where the Nissan Dealership was right? Plus it's christmas, the end of the dealers fiscal year, I hope you got a good deal on the car!

Congrats on the new wheels! I'm so glad you found my blog! It has been a long time since hiking in the alps! I'm not sure if Tim would remember this or not, but we had choir together in Jr. High!! Looks like you guys are doing great! It was so fun to hear from you!
