Each Week Elleinadspir, A Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List your favorite car models
Our car broke big-time last week which has been creating havoc for our commuting schedule. 2 working adults + 1 child in daycare-1 car equals insane commuting schedule. In-sane. After waiting a week to get a diagnosis on our car our mechanic called us and started the conversation with "I'm so sorry".
The repairs are more than car is worthy. Ruh-roh.
The upside is that I've been thinking quite a bit about car models. Shall I take you on a listography of my car-buying process? Yes? Vamos!
- Subaru Forrester: Love, but the All-Wheel Drive burns unecessary fuel here in non-snowy California.
- Mini-Cooper: Cute but impractical for people with a kid. This is totally the car I'm buying after Elian is grown. I'm serious!
- Volvos: Love them, but too expensive. We are civil servants after all.
Which brings us to our winning car: A used Prius. Great gas mileage, roomy inside, great trunk space, safe and reliable. Incidentally one of my closest friends is a hybrid/clean-energy car expert. She drives a Prius, it was an easy choice.
So Team internet what do you think? Anybody out there have a Prius and want to share their feedback? Other favorite car models? Car-shopping advice to share? Buying a car is a huge expense so I'm happy to hear any and all feedback!
Danielle's got the link today so head on over there or leave your advice in the comments.
