New Ride

Until yesterday I've been driving Brian's 1997 Civic. It had 178,000 miles and it was really starting to fall apart. Basically, we were putting more into it than the car was worth. Although we loved that car and it had been reliable for us, it was time to bite the bullet and get a new car.

New Car- Driver's Side

2009 Honda Fit Sport- I really needed a car that gets good mileage since my commute is 40 miles. Also, I wanted a fun, sporty looking car that handles well. Finally, I really wanted a 4 door car. I rarely have passengers. But the 2 door Civic was really not cool when I wanted to transport more than 1 other adult. And if we ever decided to have a child.... The Honda Fit really met all wants.

New Car- Passenger Side

Here's the passenger side. I got the Blackberry color with black interior. I'm saying it's dark blue. Although there is a little purple in there.

New Car- Butt

That's my car's butt. HAHA!

New Car- Fancy Nav System

We hadn't planned on getting one with the fancy navigation system. But this was the last one on the lot. (Cash for Clunker cleaned them out!) Now I just have to figure out how to use it. With the end of the model year and a Costco discount, we got a great deal too. YAY! No more praying that I make it home. This little beauty should last me the next 10 years.

Nice ride! We just bought a Honda too. We went for a CR-V in a gorgeous red. We picked up an 2009 model for a great price too. We didn't get one with the navigation in it but hubby picked up a Tom-Tom so we're set for traveling.

Enjoy your new car!

I love my Honda Fit! I have a 2008 but the 2009 is really cool. I'm envious of the 2 glove boxes. I'd love to be able to hide my iPod without having to unplug it! Pam (Trillian42) has the same model/color as you. It's an awesome car! Congrats!

Congrats! What a cute car and fabulous color! You'll love the gps thingy! I've had mine for a year and still have to figure it out when I use it because I don't use it that often. Awesome!

I love driving my Mazda.....if they weren't going to deal with me, Honda was next. They last forever.
We still have my '97 Mazda, and it's still going strong after 200,000 miles.
You'll love it!
