the new 4 wheeled baby

Shopping therapy is always nice. I have been in saving mode for so long that when the dam broke and I spent some money it was ALOT. I bought a new car. The old one (a Nissan Xterra) had dutifully served its purpose. I bought it just after the accident that totaled my CRV. When I went shopping for a car after the CRV accident I was looking for a tough-big-mean looking vehicle. Fast forward 5 years. I am thisclose to paying it off ($298 close) and the visor clip (you know that little clip that keeps the visor from sagging) broke. Mom and I were out to lunch with some friends and thought lets stop at Checker and see if they have one. If only that were the end of the story. Well they didnt have one so it was off to the Nissan dealership to see if they had one. I knew I liked the Murano since I had rented it before and thought 'what could it hurt' lets see what they have. Uh huh thats how it started. So 4 hours later I had traded in the security blanket for a very cool family, carseat ready vehicle. Now I just need a 2 legged baby to put in it!!

That is a snazzy looking car! I really need to do the same thing and move into an SUV/SAV. Enjoy! Oh, and a fine color choice :)
