What Is Your Dream Car or Vehicle?

Chevrolet Texas Edition Silverado

Chevrolet Texas Edition Silverado

Here is mine.  I don’t know about you but the first time I saw this lovely truck at Randall Noe auto dealership in Tyler, I fell in love with it.  Ugh!  I wish we have that much money to buy it. It’s a very beautiful truck.  The color is a little lighter in person.  This is a Chevrolet Texas Edition Silverado pick up truck with four doors.  It’s fully loaded and boy, sure is pretty.

Oh well, I can dream right? 😀

Hyundai Elantra Sport Is Our New Baby

My family and I were happy that we were able to take this new baby home this afternoon.  My dear husband was shopping for cars since the Silverado truck broke down on his way home three weeks ago.  His stress and worry levels were very high that he’s not sleeping good.  My father-in-law was helping him on car shopping in Tyler, too.  In fact, we visited a car dealership in Tyler a week ago and looked at particular car models, recent Hyundai Sonata and Elantra models, that my husband was interested in.  Although we saw nice looking ones, the listed prices were still high.

While surfing auto dealerships online, my dear husband found a couple Hyundai cars and he visited the dealer’s three days ago.  But this pre-owned Hyundai Elantra 2014 Sport in Huffines in Plano got his attention.  The listed priced was a bit high but he was watching it. The price was reduced the other day.  Then this morning, it’s price was reduced again.  Huffines wanted to get it out of their lot.  🙂  Anyway, we all went to Plano because my husband wants me to drive it around and make sure that I fit right on the driver’s seat because I sit on a pillow whenever I drive the Toyota Scion.  Gladly I fit perfectly for the Hyundai Elantra Sport has an electric seat adjustments which, I think, is a very big advantage for this car model.

Alright, so we got a good deal.  Huffines is our bank’s preferred car dealer so the transaction didn’t take more than two hours.  And, we got to take our new car home.

 

Not Ready To Let Go Of Chevy

a-chevy truck

Our Chevrolet Silverado truck is in the auto repair shop again.

I am a bit sentimental while writing this post.  I am the kind of person who really cares about the sentimental values of something.  And it breaks my heart whenever I think that any day now, we will let go of Chevy.

Although we were already anticipating this moment to happen, it happened this afternoon when my husband was on his way home.  Our dear Chevy Silverado truck suddenly died down while sitting in traffic.  My hubby called and told me about the big problem.  He asked me to search online for towing service close to where he was but the ones I found were already closed at 5:00 P.M.  The 24-hours tow service were far away from the place he’s stuck in.  I asked him to call the Roadside Assistance.  It was around 7:00 P.M. when a police came by.  Hubby already talked to someone but the tow service will not come until 8:00 P.M.  The police said they can’t wait that long so he called somebody.  So hubby cancelled the 8:00 P.M. tow service.  Gladly the towing service that the police called came at 7:15 P.M. My daughter and I picked him up at the auto shop.

I just hope it’s not a huge problem with the truck. I don’t think I am ready to let go of Chevy yet.  I hope she’ll stay around for a year or so.  But whatever is the result of the vehicle check tomorrow, then we’ll have to decide.
