Something New

May 14th, 2010 · 7 Comments

Good Stuff:

  • New car smell!
  • It’s blue, but sometimes, in some light, it looks very slightly purple!
  • I can close the rear hatch without the huge struggle that ensued every time I closed the hatch of my old car.
  • There’s no dog slime in it.  Yet.
  • The brakes work really well.  In my old car, you needed to push really hard on the brakes to stop.  I used to feel like Fred Flintstone when he would push his heels into the ground to stop!
  • There are no strange clicking noises when my husband adjusts the steering wheel that way he likes it.  That annoyed the heck out of him in the old car.
  • The brake light doesn’t come on (knock on wood!) scaring the heck out of me while I’m driving.  This happened a few times in the old car.  We brought it in for service and their computers couldn’t find a problem!

Weird Stuff:

  • Sometimes you can hear the gasoline sloshing around in the tank. What the heck?
  • It has 6 cylinders, but only uses the ones it needs, when it needs them.  I can feel the engine doing all that weird stuff.
  • The brakes work really well.  I’m just not used to that.
  • It notices when I have something light-weight placed on the front passenger seat and turns that airbag off.
  • I feel like I’m hurtling through time and space at warp speed…and I’m only going 40 mph.  Yeah, the people behind me aren’t too happy about this.

I’m sure you figured it out already –  it’s a new car!  I’m so glad I don’t have to worry about the old one and all it’s problems anymore!

And because it just doesn’t feel right to have a post without a photo…can you see the reflection of our fence in the water drop?!

    Oh you’re a tease Gayle! I can see something…but I really want to see what color it is. I’m a little intriqued by the purple color…

    Hi Puna,
    I accidentally misled you with the sentence before the photo! There is no reflection of the car in the water drop. I’ll try to get a photo of the purplishness!
