Vroom Vroom!

Richard and I purchased a new car. A 2008 Dodge Caliber. I have never owned a car in the 2000s nor had a car under 75,000 miles (I don't count Richard's truck since he bought it before he met me and I rarely drove it). We traded in Richard's Ford Ranger. (The kicker is we learned as we were about to leave the dealership that they already had Richard's truck sold.)
Richard now gets the pleasure of driving my 1998 Ford Taurus to work. He isn't too happy about it and the guys at work are giving him a hard time, but he is excited for me. And he feels better knowing Christian and I are in a more reliable car.
I love my new car!
What I love about my new car:
  • It sits higher than my Taurus
  • It only has 12,000 miles!
  • The body style
  • The tire pressure monitoring system
  • There's a cooler in the glove compartment!
  • CD player, IPod holder, built in Satellite stereo, direct IPod connector
  • More cupholders!

What I miss about my Taurus:

  • Lumbar support
  • Automatic climate control
  • Automatic headlights (I keep forgetting to turn on my headlights because I never had to in my Taurus!)

Below is my actual car taken from the Fury Dealership website. The color is Dark Khaki Metallic. I was a little unsure about it especially since the salesman called it Gold. I really like it now.
