New car. :)

So, my previous car was a nightmare since I bought it; things started breaking three days after I bought it last year. Friday night my passenger window FELL OUT when it was stopped, so my furious hubby insisted I needed a new vehicle. He went all out and bought me a brand-new 2011 suv! :) I love it and feel soooo much safer in this car. It has such a high safety rating we will actually pay less for insurance than we did on the car! Plus the backseat is totally flat so the car seat base won't wobble. All kinds of plusses. :) I had to share...! Everyone else just goes "oh, new car" but I know you ladies will see the point is the safety factor, not the new factor (ok fine the new factor is a bonus).

I should also mention I live in Phoenix, AZ. So if the car finally died it would potentially be either pregnant me or me and the baby in heat that's so extreme for 5 months out of the year a dead A/C is actually an emergency... Bad, bad thing if you have a dead car!

It's a silver 2011 Ford Escape... Look at one if you don't already have something in mind for your new car!

How exciting! I love a new car. We went and test drove the Mazda CX-9 a couple of weeks ago which I totally loved. I think we are waiting til after the baby is born though, I really want to adjust to having two kids in daycare before we add another big bill, but I can't wait to have a bigger car!

YAY! I was so excited when DH bought our Pathfinder last year that I didn't even scold him for buying it without letting me know, so I can completely relate. :) I'm so glad you have something safe and reliable!

I'm in phoenix too, so I totally get it. I have the Ford Freestyle... And I love it. The newer ones are called the Taurus X but mine is a 2007 so it was a freestyle. I test drove the escape when I bought my car a few years ago...very nice! Happy you got a new car, enjoy!
