A New Car

We got a new car and she is my baby!
Okay..well.. new used.. It is a 2008 Honda CRV, all decked out with all the top options, sunroof (gasp - I LOVE the sunroof), and it is a beautiful blue, and the best thing of all? It only has 15,000 miles on it. A 2008, still has the "new car" smell, don't you just love the "new car" smelll?

Many factors went into deciding if we were going to get a new car. But, the trade-in price was right, and we just found this one, and in order not to bore you with the details, let me just say it was pure love at first sight.

Our last car was silver, and while, it was ok. But, for me.. I have always missed the beautiful blue color of my last most favorite car, which was a Honda Accord. This car is more like the family version of that car. I had toyed with the idea of getting some san francisco car painting but that option never made complete sense to me, because there was still some options I wished I had inside of the car.

I could have always gone to Spectrum Auto Body and figured out what added options would cost me. I googled a bit about this auto-body shop and from what I read, they have good reviews and are reliable. But, San Francisco is a bit of a drive for me. Although.. I do love California... daydreaming now...
Good night!

Great new car! Only 15,000 miles? That's fabulous! We have a dark blue SUV too and I love that color!

Thank GOODNESS for old ladies to create used cars with low mileage. Hahah...and while I don't really know if yours was preowned by an old lady, that is GREAT!!! Enjoy it!

It looks great! Let us know how it goes. I would love to get a CRV or Toyota Rav for my next car (which will probably be in 2-3 years).

15k mileage on a used car is definitely a SCORE! Well, we all know that a mileage gives us a picture of the car’s condition, so I can safely assume that this car has been taken care well. What I find amazing is that the car looks brand new (hint: shiny paint job). How’s the car doing now? I hope you didn’t experience problems with it!
