New Wheels

Lance and I are now proud owners of this:
Our only working car (the saturn) started making weird noises a few weeks ago. When I went to get the oil changed, I asked about it and was told that the engine was likely going out. Not knowing how soon that could happen, we decided we had better start looking for a new car.

After looking through every car lot in Cache Valley and scouring ksl trying to figure out which car to get, we decided on this. It is a 2010 Toyota Yaris. The original owners took excellent care of it and put very little miles on it. When we purchased it, it had less than 7200 miles.
I read reviews on many different cars, but the Yaris had the highest ratings, by far. There were VERY few complaints, while most people raved about how much they loved their car. They are reliable and get very good gas mileage.

There are a few small quirky things about the car that generated the most complaints. For example, the speedometer is located in the center of the dash. It takes a little getting used to, but it didn't bother us enough to deter us from it.
So far we are very happy with our purchase. It's nice knowing that we have a safe car that isn't going to break down on us in the middle of nowhere. (And even if it does, at least it has a warranty to cover it!)
