Mama's got a new set of wheels!

Goodbye, minivan!  Hello, Jetta!
This is my new-to-me Volkswagon Jetta TDi.

We are so excited about this new addition.
Our beloved minivan had 200,000+ miles on it.
While it still got us from point A to point B, it was struggling.
No AC, windows wouldn't roll down, etc.

Dan started looking for a replacement vehicle,
with the idea that we were looking for a great deal on a fuel-efficient vehicle.
We were so happy to find this Jetta.
It has 5,000 miles on it, still a few years left on the warranty,
and we paid less than Kelly Blue Book.
As Dan drove it home from Birmingham, 
he was getting almost 60 miles to the gallon.
Such provision!
This will be a long-term vehicle for us.

Here are some more pictures:
The children (and husband!) have been warned: no eating or drinking in this vehicle.  
Maybe water.

  1. So happy for you, my friend! Oh, I can just smell that new car smell from here in NC! Doesn't it feel sooooo good to let the minivan go?! Much love, Kelly
