The New Ride

Here's the new baby....

Isn't it beautiful??

This is the best true-color shot.
It's not cause I think you are so incredibly interested in the headlights.

The cool dash. There's also a sunroof.

We LOVE having the AUX IN feature.

Keyless start and entry! Woot!

Dual-control air. I set mine, he sets his, it's perfect.

We hadn't originally intended on buying a brand-spanking-new car. Yes, this is a new car. It had not even been test driven once. We were the very first people to drive this car. And it goes against everything I've ever been taught, to buy a NEW car.

But, we've learned the hard way that you will ALWAYS have a monthly car payment - it's just a matter of whether it's going to be a loan payment or repair costs. And weighing all our options, we decided on something with a warranty. :)

We decided that this was a good long-term purchase for our family. God-willing, we'll have this thing until we're teaching a teenager how to drive or Jesus comes back, whichever comes first. So, right now we're just enjoying our new toy. The AUX IN is so much fun, we just keep SoldierMan's MP3 player charged and plugged in and we're good to go. And I can't even begin to describe how cool that keyless start is. It's pretty awesome.

And because I know somebody is going to ask, no, it doesn't have a name. Or a gender. Just not my thing. :)


  1. Schnazzie! I love it! And the AUX IN and keyless start/entry...whoa. Can I be honest and admit I didn't even know they made cars that didn't need a key to be put in the ignition? I've heard of keyless start, but I thought you still needed a key to drive away or something. Are you saying you don't even need a key to drive this baby? I'm in awe. And I'm probably showing how technology stupid I am. I've accepted it.

    Have fun riding in STYLE!!

  2. Ha ha I know you don't do name's or genders but I saw it and immediately thought, "She's beautiful!"

  3. Congrats on the new car. It's always exciting getting a new car, after all we use cars a LOT! When DH gets home I may be sharing similar photos....although it will probably be a minivan, so not as sexy as your car ;)

  4. I have keyless entry & start and I LOVE it! Just a word of advice...remember to turn the car off! The engine is really quiet and you may forget turn it off. I've done it at least twice and while my parents had my car for over a year they each did it as well:) Enjoy your new car...it's beautiful!

  5. Congratulations! it's gorgeous and I know you will enjoy having it.

  6. Nice car, I have been wanting one for a while but I am going to wait till after school.

    Oh my husband named my honda civic Orchid. He is such a goob. He wanted to name a daughter that one day but I told him NO way! So then he named the car.

  7. Ooooh, what a shiny new car! Congrats!!! The Altimas have come a long way. I really like the new ones.
