What is scarier than buying a new car...?

NOTHING...okay maybe a house, but still I have mild bleeding ulcers. With my 120 mile-a-day commute (yes, no joke) it was time to get rid of the 'ol Xterra, she was getting old and drank too much ($140/week in gas!). All I wanted was a comfortable ride, cool gadgets, and great gas mileage; add all that up=08 Jetta. Germans just know what they're doing; they make affordable cars that actually look cool. Just because we're poor doesn't mean we have have to drive in a car that makes us feel poor.



Cool gadgets include heated leather seats (not necessary right now), 6 disc CD changer, satellite radio!, tryptonic (no idea what that means other than I can switch it into manual and it's kind of fun...
and my favorite feature is the i pod jack! You just plug it right into your car!

Just because you have one child doesn't mean you need an SUV right away; this has plenty of room for a car seat and amazing trunk space (I should be getting paid for this sponsorship). We figure once we have two kids, then it will be time for an SUV and maybe then cars will run on hydrogen.

Wow! A new baby girl, a new car, you guys have been busy! Cute car, by the way. I love it and I'm a little jealous seeing as our gas bill is about the same as yours with the Xterra X 2 because we have the Yukon too. This whole gas thing is getting old. I'm guessing this other comment is an inside joke, but it's kind of funny even without knowing what they're talking about. :) I really need to get out more! Sounds like you're all doing well...keep up the good work! :)

It's soo pretty! Good thing you jumped on the new car bandwagon - we are loving ours! The gas situation is much improved.

I'm hoping for the hydrogen car soon too...

Congrats:) I have to say, my favorite perk is the 6 CD changer...since I'm archaeic and still don't have an ipod. It makes my life much easier.

Is it black? slate?

OH man!!!! this is great news, if we ever talked anymore (totally my fault by the way) I would have heard this strait from you... but this will have to do for now! I love you and I love your new car~

Erica!!! So I was blog hoping and found you! It looks like you are doing great and congratulations on the baby girl and new car that's so exciting!

does yours smell like a crayon too?

Congrats on making the plunge. It seriously took us like 6 months to finally break down and get a car. At least it has 0% financing, which may be the only reason we bought it. I have yet to freak out about buying a house, but that will come soon.

I'm suprised they still gave it to you, I totally gave you a bad recommendation.
