Zoom Zoom

We’ve decided on this.

We test drove it’s competitors, and found it was far and away the winner in terms of handling and safety, interior options and quality, and comfort. The Matrix in particular (our ‘other first’ choice, since we had a Toyota previously, and loved it) wasn’t even close in terms of safety, comfort or interior options, although it did have a better price. And Erin hated the way that the Matrix drove, which pretty much sealed it’s fate in our choice priorities.

I have to say, the auto transmission w/Tiptronic shifting is a fun little option too, especially after coming off of a manual transmission. Completely un-necessary, but fun.

I should (hopefully) be picking up the vehicle on this friday, just waiting for the paperwork to be finished, our colour vehicle to be moved to the local dealership etc. Will have pictures and whatnots up after the weekend.
