Our New Car!

Last night we bought a new car! We've been talking about a new car for a few months now. We decided to look on Friday night at the Harley Davidson Dealership where Rapid Chevy had their cars parked for a big sale. We found a couple we liked and were within our requirements - Automatic, '06 or newer, Impala or Malibu, power windows, power locks, air & heat. Paul and his mom test drove this one Sat. morning while I was at work and brought it to show me. I fell in love with it! It has way more features than I initially wanted, but we couldn't pass it up.

We had to wait until yesterday so I could test drive it and sign the papers. We both love the car and all the features. It's an '07 silver Chevy Impala, 3.9 V6, Spoiler, sunroof, automatic, power windows & power locks.

It has black leather interior, cd player, outside temp, heated seats, air & heat, and power seats.
The air and heat part is important because my pickup hasn't had either for the past year. It gets almost twice the gas mileage my pickup got, so we can go places now! It also has a remote start which I'm sure I'll love this winter. Oh wait did I tell you winter is forcast to start on Thursday??? Yes, they are predicting snow already!

The back is very spacious as well! The trunk is huge and my sewing machine will be a lot easier to load in and out now.

I drove it out to my brothers place and took my mom for a test drive. Then Ed got back and he had a look at the inside. He had checked it out at the dealers, so we got the mechanic stamp or approval. It rides like a dream!

Very nice! I love it when I get a new car, it's so exciting! I can't believe you went a whole year without a heater!!!! I'd be driving to work in a full snowsuit!

Very nice.. Isn't it nice to get a new vehicle.. I have been driving Keiths fusion to and from work well switching between that and my truck. I'm in love with his heated seats.. they really make it more comfortable to drive.
