Baby you can drive my car

fit for the king & me... MJ's new(er) wheels

I bought a new(er) vehicle yesterday. Me!

The gal who keeps her vehicles for-ever to the ever.

My current wheels?  An 8-year-old Chevy SUV with 59,000 miles banked.

That’s right, lovies. I only have 9 – count ’em – 9 miles to the office :).

I travel, on average, about an extra thousand miles for work related “stuff” annually.

The only reason I’m buying “new(er)” now is because the kid needs wheels (and has the $$ saved to buy mine).

So … rather than find him a vehicle with a history unknown, we’ve made this one available at a most reasonable cost.

Which meant new(er) car shoppin’ for me – Whee!

I spent hours sleuthing the internet. I became best friends with Edmunds and KBB, and, oh I knew what I was after: 4 wheel drive, decent gas mileage, low miles and what else .. a rocking sound system!

I took a few new(er) vehicles for a spin.  Like Goldilocks, some were too big, some were too small .. but this one?   This one was just right.

It handles great. Has low miles. Looks snazzy. Comes with 4×4 capability to navigate our heavy Michigan snow.  Gets good gas mileage. No scratches, dents or accidents.

What, you may ask, was my personal test?

        Heh heh … Let’s see how he sounds in here……. Hooah!

Me and Elvis are picking ‘er up tonight….  Thank yew very much. 🙂
