We made the big purchase last week and we are now first time car owners! We're so excited to go to the grocery store, now that the car is registered and driveable- it will be so nice not to have to walk from the store to the apartment with backpacks and arms full of milk, bread, eggs, frozen chicken, and all the other staples of our diet.
It's a 2003 Volkswagen Passat turbo and I love driving it! It's so smooth and it's nice and roomy too! We're trying to minimize our use of it- we've been getting along just fine for the most part without it, so we're trying to save money on gas by continuing walking or biking to campus. Parking at BYU is a nightmare anyway, so we're trying to avoid that whole situation too.
We're excited to finally have a way to get around, and we're hoping all goes well.
