Hello! And welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions. I don’t have anything fashion worthy, but I do have a fabulous find!
I got a new car!
I have been saying for a while now that I wanted a new car (or a used car, but new to me). I had a 2003 Hyundai Sonata that was getting to the end of the road. It still ran and it was a good ride, but I was getting tired of getting out of the car.
I know, this sounds like a very odd reason to not want a car. But when you are 5 foot 10 and have to crouch to get into the car, it gets tiring after a while.
So I wanted a car that was taller and I wanted something newer, like 2010 or newer. And the car I was looking at was the Kia Soul. I thought that they were absolutely adorable and they were the perfect size for me. They were taller than my Sonata and had a lot of space to carry my stuff in.
And by stuff I mean my coworkers when we go to lunch.
The search was on to find a new car. 2 weeks ago, I had the day off from work and I was in town with my family. Haley and I went on the lookout to find me a car! But…it didn’t go so well.
We went to a car lot where we know the owner. They had a 2012 Chevy Equinox which is the car my grandparents drive. We took it for a test drive and it was really nice. But, it wasn’t my favorite. It felt a little too big for me compared to my Sonata.
So we passed on that one.
And then we went to the car lot that mom and dad bought their Dodge Journey from. And they had a 2012 Nissan Cube. And it was adorable! Haley and I looked at it for quite a while. And even when she had me look at a different car, I always went back to the Cube.
So this past Saturday, mom, dad, and I went to look more in depth into the Cube. We got in the car and realized that the seats were extremely comfortable. And there was soooooo much more space than anticipated. And it was even cuter on the inside than the outside.
And we took it for a test drive.
And I fell in love.
Like, got 3 block and I was ready to take it home.
But, there was a 2007 Ford Escape that was at the lot that was a nice looking car for a cheaper price with less miles that was in a nice condition. And, even though I loved the Cube, I wanted to give the Escape a fair chance.
And I got 3 blocks and knew I wanted the Cube.
So, we turned around and went back to the dealership…where I signed for the Nissan Cube.
And I am so glad that I did because it is an awesome car. It has so much storage space (you know, for all of my coworkers lol), it is tall and I don’t hit my head on the roof, and it is so much fun to drive! To be honest, I smile every time I drive it because it is so much fun.
So, yep. That’s my fabulous find for the week. It may not be super exciting for everyone, but I love it!
PS. There are lights that shine in the footwells. It comes in multiple colors, but these are some of my favorites!
