It’s All New!!


We got a new car!!

Okay, but before I get into that, you have to go to Disneyland's website and sign up to get a free ticket on your birthday in 2009! Today is the LAST DAY to sign up so don't miss out. Thanks Anne for reminding me ;)

Sooooo… yesterday we bought a new Rav4 from Quality Toyota in Corona. We got a great deal and everyone there was nice to deal with and really went out of their way to make sure we got the car we wanted and the deal we wanted. Woohoo!!

I have not bought a new car since 1997 and Xaver hasn't EVER bought a new car so this is soooo cool! We haven't had any car payments since 2003 so this was a BIG deal to take on. We are sooo not typical Californians when it comes to cars. One of the guys at the dealership was telling us the average Californian keeps their car for 2.9 years. We keep them until they BLOW UP. Really, we do! The Camry just hit 200K miles and is still going strong. I am totally planning to have this RAV 4 be Katie's car when she gets to High School, OMG. She will be driving in only 6 years. YIKES!

My dad drove the car this AM and totally wants to go to Quality to buy a car–really, this was a really great car buying experience!! So here is our new car:


Matthew really likes it:


Off to see the Festival of Lights at the Mission Inn!!! Xaver only wants to take the new car on trips now – LOL!!

  9. Love the color you picked! Question for you – how large is the back area? I have a Corolla S and Matthew’s wheelchair fits but after it’s paid off we are going to look into an SUV or Minivan so it’s easier to get it in and out of the car. Looks like there is a lot of room. Just want to have something where I don’t have to take it apart and fold it up. ~Lorie D from CJ’s QK Club
