New Wheels...4 that is!

Well Friday is finally here and I am not sure what the weekend will bring. The weather forecast isn’t great, but hopefully the sun will come out so I can at least get a short motorcycle run in. I have also picked up another cold and feel terrible…this is the fourth cold that I have had this winter!

Pretty exciting place around here today! My wife and kids are very excited as we just purchased a new Honda Civic. This is a real change for me as I usually purchase GM or Ford vehicles. We were looking for a smaller car that would be good on fuel as there are four of us driving now. We tried out the following vehicles: Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix, Pontiac Vibe, Dodge Caliber, Ford Fusion and the Honda Civic. We really liked the Ford Fusion, but it was the most expensive of the bunch, the Toyotas were good too. In the end it came down to the Dodge Caliber SXT and the Honda Civic DX-G. They were priced quite close after all of the deals and haggling...the Honda ended up being a bit cheaper. We also liked the drive of the Honda and the greater visibility compared to the Dodge. A pretty good financing rate was the deciding factor too!

Here is the new car!
