car shopping woes
OK, so we’re not physically shopping, it’s more or less we’re looking online.
Matt drives a Volkswagen Jetta GLI sport turbo. It’s a lotta words for a car, if you ask me. And totally not practical for having kids.
We had talked about getting rid of it for a long time and swapping out my Jeep for his main vehicle and I get a larger SUV of some sort for the brood. I’m telling you, with me, Matt, two kids in car seats and Sadie-dog…it gets cramped.
Just yesterday, I took the kids and Sadie-dog to my Mom’s house for the day. I didn’t need to bring much, just a diaper bag, clothes bag (because they inevitably get dirty), the pack ‘n play for Luca’s napping and of course the kids and dog. But once I got everything in there, it was a little claustrophobic.
So here’s where we run into an issue. I want a bigger vehicle without putting a giant hole in the ozone or my wallet. Hybrid large SUVs are rare and I am still a little afraid to even think about getting a Toyota.
I’m tossing around the idea of a Kia Borrego or Honda Pilot. They got really good reviews in Consumer Report, plus their gas mileage isn’t all that terrible…
AHHH! I HATE car shopping. I’ve been to Bobby Rahal, usedcars.com, enterprisecarsales.com, dayauto.com…I’m SO over it already.
