Wow, ya finally went and done it. Good for you Not as pricey but I got myself a Chevy HHR Metallic Blue. Love it. Traded in my Chevy Equinox. This gets a little more mpg. But is is also fun to drive. Don't have kids to drive around, just me and maybe a client or two once in awhile. Glad you got what you wanted. go girl

thanks for the encouragement guys. I just love my caddie. It rides so smooth and drives like a dream. I feel so lucky that I decided to look at the paper that morning.

I have a Subaru Outback. This has been the best car I've ever owned. It's been a tough, dependable vehicle. However, it now has over 248,000 miles on it, and a broken strut. Time to look for another car.

Toyota Camry SE .....This car was made in Kentucky , I don't regret now . Best thing I could of chosen . I thought about GM , mostly but I changed my mind ..... I figure what the heck , I'm paying for it and no one else is , buy what I want ...... Everything is foreign made anymore.

I drove a Honda Civic for eleven years. 287,xxx miles. Did the timing belt once, replaced the distributor at 175K. I killed four deer and seriously wounded a Buik Skylark with that car, and it never left me sitting anywhere. Would have gotten another Honda, but didn't have the cash, and financing anything makes me puke, so I bought an 03 Cavalier. Gotta tellya, it's been great. Now has 123K on it, and the only problem it's given me was a heater control cable that I had done under warranty.
The boss, well, she hauls all my critters around, so she's in an 07 Suburban. My philosophy with regard to car crashes is simple. Give the hit, don't take the hit. It's big, and the inside is curtained with airbags.

i love my Toyota Highlander. Very comfortable and decent gas mileage. When you get a new car, get GPS and satelite radio built in.

Yeah, I do have satelite and onstar and love both of them. Highlander was on my list because hey, they are building the new Toyota plant 1.9 miles from my house and yep, you guessed it, they are going to be building Highlanders. Maybe next time.

Right now guys, I am in love with my caddie. I bet I have been more places this past couple weeks than I did the three to four months before I got it. I am so excited to be driving a car that is like a dream. Today, I even managed to get a new office chair,fully assembled in the back seat! And trunk room is awesome! I am just happy as a little kid in a candy shop with money in his hand.
