Our New Rendezvous

After almost a year of talking about s getting a new car, finally we did it today! We decided to get an SUV after having a car for almost 7 years. Since we have two kids now, we thought we might need a new car now in order to accommodate everything we need and so glad we finally did it! It was actually a used car, a 2005 Buick Rendezvous CXL with about 88000 miles in it, not bad for a pre-owned car. Plus it has only one winner and never been to an accident. It is in good condition plus the color of cappuccino metallic frost color is very elegant.

The idea of having an SUV is that we can load bunch of stuff in it like my kid’s stroller, their wagon and groceries. I like the idea of having an SUV but this is the first time I would drive one. So, now I have to get used to it. I need to spend time to familiarize every point and corners of driving an SUV.

The SUV has lots of features in it compare to our 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. It has 6 Speakers which our old car doesn’t have, dual front impact airbags, four wheel independent suspension, front bucket seats, front anti-roll bar, front fog lights, front reading lights, overhead console, panic alarm, passenger door bin, speed control or cruise, split folding rear seat, and it’s bigger and wider.  Also, I like the idea of being able to see the road better because of the elevated driver and passenger seats.  Also, the leather seats looks amazing! And, the interior color are good.

Although, it doesn’t really change our payments with this new car but it is better than the other one especially when we have two kids. It also not bad for our auto insurance especially now that I was added into it as a new driver. It only costs us about $160 which is not bad at all. We need more room and this car makes it all possible. I can’t wait to drive this car  very soon.

wow! congratulation mami joy :D that's a nice car. When our family is getting big it only means that we need to upgrade our vehicle into a more spacious one. Van or SUV will do :D

congratulations on that newly-purchased car of your family mommy! i guess now is the best time to get one with all the plunged prices! i used to love our brand new Kia Sorento 2012. SUV is good, but we needed one with a bigger space than what the sorento offered so we traded it in with a minivan. the husband and i both realized that we are minivan lovers! :)

drive safe! :)
