Our New Family Car!

Meet the newest member of our family! We got a 2011 Subaru Outback!

Rob and I had been talking about getting a new car for a few months now. While the Cube was great, it wasn't ideal for humans, dogs and any extras like luggage. We also felt that we should sell the MINI since it was just sitting in the garage and we didn't need three cars. We're going up to New York soon and with the long drive and the possibility of driving in crappy weather, I thought it'd be a good time to see if we can get a new car.

I wanted a Subaru, because I am a sucker for good marketing! (being in the design industry and all) But how can you not love a Subaru commercial? How can you not love a company that promotes love, family and most importantly dogs? And their latest commercial saying how Subaru owners keep their cars for over 10 years, that so nice! (i've been watching the commercials thing morning and i'm either cracking up or crying...sheesh, hee hee)
Of course I wanted a Subaru because it's a very safe car, the all wheel drive and the room.

We started the search for either a Outback or Forrester. You know what? It's pretty hard to find! Sure there are used cars, but they are either old and high mileage or new and really expensive. The one we ended up getting is fairly new, but it does have a lot of miles. The price was really good though! Also, this car is LOADED! We have heated seats, defogging and deicing, touch screen radio/cd play/gps/ blue tooth/ ipod..., sun roof, tinted windows, all weather matts and who know what else? It looks like the previous owner did a lot of driving, like a sales rep. Score for us! With our trades in and a slightly longer loan, we are actually saving quite of bit of money too!

I'm so happy! It's our family car! Now I just gotta put our robot family stickers, an apple sticker and find a good rescue dog magnet. Oh and pick a name too! I also just ordered our Subaru badge! Subaru gives you a customizable badge that you put on your car. We've getting one with the family, running and half marathon (which i will put on when i finish my half in jan.)
