We got a new car this week, a 2007 Toyota Prius. It replaces my old Saturn, which we sold to Jenny’s brother in August, just before Douglas was born.
We’ve just started figuring out all the neat tricks the car can do, but we’re really happy with it so far. The big reason we decided to get the car is that previously both of our cars were coupes, and it’s hard to get Douglas’s car seat into the back seat of those cars.
It took a couple months for the Prius to arrive after we ordered it, and we just barely missed the full tax credit period. However, it’s great to have a new car with lots of features, good mileage, and room for our new family.
