New Car!

We bought a new car last week and so far we are totally loving our new wheels.


Our old car was dying and we were at the point where we weren't sure if we should keep putting money into it or just get a new car. You can guess which option we went with.

We obviously purchased another Subaru, since that is pretty much the only car Dan agrees to own (other than his truck) and we moved up in the world by purchasing a 2008.


It's so pretty, which is basically all I really care about. I do know that it is a 2008 Subaru Outback XT, which means it's awesome and has a turbo. If you have any other questions concerning the new car, feel free to ask and I will refer to Dan's further knowledge.

It has leather seats and different temperature settings for the driver and passenger. Everything is all so clean and beautiful.



It is also, of course, manual transmission, since Dan refuses to own automatics. Can you tell he's a little picky when it comes to cars?

There is an awesome sunroof and the backseat even has an optional armrest for the passengers. We are totally in love with all the things in this car. It has captured our hearts.



Since Dan has his work truck, this car is mostly mine to drive, which totally delights me. It is so much smoother and quieter than our old car and shifting is much more of a breeze in the new one.


So there you have it, a whole post about a car. This is one of the big things that has been happening lately and has been keeping us so busy and stressed. There is more, of course, but I will share more in a later post.

Oh and if you can't remember what our old car looked like, here is one last picture of it! It's going to either be bought by someone or go off to a scrap yard in the next few days. Goodbye old car!


Anyone else get this excited over a new car?

    1. Why thank you! The colour is so pretty, we've never had a pretty colour car before. And the sunroof is awesome, it adds so much light to the car.

  3. I love getting a new car! (we always go pre-owned, so it's not NEW-new, but new-enough!)

    1. New to me is new enough in my books! We could never actually afford a new Subaru, so we go with used.

    2. When we last car-shopped (two years ago) even the pre-owned subaru was out of our budget!! (only 2 or 3 years old... but still!)

    3. Yup, they are crazy! We were looking at some at a Subaru dealership and they were way out of our price range.
