New Car

We got my new car this past weekend (if you didn't read about my PT Cruiser being backed over by a garbage truck you can read about it here). I don't know about you but I don't like the buying a new car process. It's long. It's boring. It's a lot of waiting. And I'm never quite sure if I'm being taken advantage of or not.

But buying the GMC Terrain was a bit different. We test drove a couple of vehicles earlier last week after doing some research for crossover vehicles. After we got back to town we decided on the Terrain. We called the salesman back and told him the price we were able to pay. He told us he could work with our number. We gave him some personal info to get the ball rolling. 

A cool thing about Buick GMC I didn't know about before we decided on the Terrain is that they give an educators discount. How cool is that?!? That was a really nice surprise!

We went back this past weekend to sign the paperwork. It still took about two hours from the time we walked in the door to the time our salesman showed us how to work everything and we pulled out of the lot. But compared to our other vehicle purchases that was down right speedy!

Reagan helped me get the radio stations set and my phone connected to Bluetooth. It certainly has more technology than my Cruiser (but I still miss it). 

Also the new car smell is giving me a headache. Yea, I know, #FirstWorldProblems. Ha!

This picture is of me and my Cruiser a couple of hours before we said our final goodbyes. (I have no lipstick on. My mom is going to be furious! Ha!)


  1. While not liking the new car smell is definitely a first world problem, I thin it's probably because you weren't ready to part with your PT Cruiser.

    Spring's almost here. You can open up your windows and be rid of that new car smell in no time!

  2. I don't like the pain of having to buy a new car either, but I do enjoy the new car smell. It makes me want to keep the inside clean. Enjoy!

  3. Sorry to hear that you had to part with your Cruiser, but it looks like you made quite the upgrade. I can totally relate to the pains of having to search for a new set of wheels, but by the end of it all, it is always worth it. The GMC Terrain was an excellent choice too, for my friend's has given him no trouble at all since he's gotten his recently.
