My wonderful, diligent husband did a lot of research and dragged my reluctant self to dealer lots, and now his efforts have paid off: we have bought a new car. Introducing our 2009 Hyundai Elantra:
We've mostly been a 1-car family over the years, but Ross will be going to a different school this year, and we needed a second car to make sure we can get him there and back again. (Talk about a spendy school supply item!) Plus, our Jeep is 12 years old -- still running fine, but it doesn't hurt to have something newer, just in case.
Can you believe that he'll be learning to drive this car in 5 years??? Yikes!
