Car Shopping

We have a big plan for go check out a new car. My car, that I bought brand new in 2004, is approaching it's 10 year birthday next year and has 150,000 miles on it. We thought about trading it in for something else but then thought the dealer may just laugh and say he will give us $500 for it. PLUS, we are getting so tired of the "who needs the car" discussion so we decided to keep the Civic and get another car. With regular oil changes and some new tires, we hope the Civic will go another 100,000 miles especially if Erik is just going to use the car casually to go surfing.

 I think when it is time for the Civic to go, it will be a little sad. That car has driven us to vacations all over the place from Vermont to North Carolina. But more importantly, it brought us to California. The three of us in the car, drove cross country. Ahhh memories. It has brought us to Tahoe, The Redwoods, Long Beach...It's been a great car.

So....the cars I want to take a look at are VW Jetta, Nissan Sentra, and Toyota Rav 4. We're checking out the Jetta today so we'll let you know how we like it.
