Car shopping has taken up a large enough space in my head. It's a big decision, and something I'm going to have to live with for at least 125,000 miles. Consumer Reports says one thing, Edmunds.com states another and then my friends have opinions to share as well. Not one car seems to stand out, everyone has a different favorite. But my quest is narrowed down thanks to my need for better, it not great gas mileage. I'm downsizing, having only one child to drive around now; the rest can drive themselves.
For years I sought out the closest thing to a mini-van without having to actually break down and get one. Now, I need something smaller yet accommodating for a kid with lots of equipment: guitars, amplifiers, soccer balls, karate weapons, backpacks, yoga mats and ice skates clutter the rear of my car, easily resembling a sporting and music store. Add a cooler with snacks and drinks and bag of dry cleaning on to that…
I always forget to drop off something, along with library books and I am realizing as I write this that I should probably look for something with a bigger trunk.
