Cars and Kids

After months of planning, and a few test drives, we've got ourselves a new car. We traded in our old one which has served as well for the past seven years for a Hyundai Tucson City. Say what you will about Hyundai but we think it's great value for money and with a 5 years, 100,000 km. warranty, we think it will serve as well for a long time too. We haven't done a long drive yet but we really should if so we can break in the car.

Boy and girl were, of course, very excited. Almost every weekend now for the past several weeks they've been asking us when we were going to get the new car. We took delivery of the car just in time for the last weekend and we promptly took it around for a spin. No need really to get into a car review but suffice to say that we liked the whole experience.

The boy just loved the power windows in the back seat. The girl likes the extra cup holders and the separate openable rear glass. We're happy as long as they are... ;)

congratulations on the new wheels! it would have been nice to live closer to each other so we can "break the car in" together. we'll definitely bring ours to adelaide within the year, so we'll see you then.

now the more challenging part -- how to keep it clean as new! haha. good luck to us!
