We knew we had to get a new car sooner then later, but were hoping to hold out until P has a job in a few months. The transmission died in my car so the time came now. We decided on a used Mazda CX-9, but the inventory for this car is very slim.
Fast forward a few days to me flying to San Francisco, taking the Bart to the dealership and 4 hours later we were the owners of a 2011 Mazda CX-9. Thanks to my father in law for his help! The man knows how to find and get a good deal on a car.
Sunday I made the 12 hour drive by myself and loved it. An entire day to myself with just my thoughts and music to keep me occupied. I'm sure this car will see many more family trips. So glad to have a car that works and fits the family.
