New Wheels...Mommy Wheels!!!

After 11 years of faithfully driving me here and there....and here... and there, it was time to trade in my wonderful Cavalier and get something newer and more practical in preparation for Hannah coming home later this year.
T-h-i-s year folks! Wahooo!!!!

Here is my new ride and I'm lovin' it! It's a 2007 Mazda 5 GT and is a treat to drive. My last car was a plain Jane model and this one has a few bells and whistles which I know will be greatly appreciated as I'm already appreciating them and I only picked it up yesterday!

The main feature that captured my attention back in October when I saw this car for the first time when my cousin showed me his, were the sliding back doors. The car is a little bigger than a station wagon but smaller than a mini-van. It's kinda like a mini mini-van! :o) It can seat 6 if 2 of them are children or, tiny adults. It also has power locks which is a new treat for me. Yup, it was manual locks and manual windows in my little Cavalier.

It also has cruise which was on my wish list. One of the treats that I really like but wasn't on my list at all is a sunroof. I had one in my first car and really liked it but it's a bonus, not a necessity.

So happy to have some fun, safe new wheels and a vehicle that will make life much easier to get Hannah in and out of her car seat while in parking lots or the garage. As much as I liked my Cavalier and it was hard to part with, I'm thrilled with my new ride. Wheeee! I have a mommy car!!!

  16. Power doors rock! The best, though, is the slidiing effect. Much easier to get baby in and out in tight spaces!

    Congrats on the new ride.

    Kind regards from Miami,

  25. My first car was a Cavalier and I LOVED it... drove it until it died... many many kilometres later.

    However, your new car looks fabulous. Just right for a mommy-to-be! Congrats and enjoy driving in relative quiet until Hannah comes home... lol

  26. Oh...enjoy! Just in time to get used to that before mamahood arrives. I love it.

  27. Wow! This looks great! I was thinking of a Subaru for my next car, but a mini minivan might be a better way to go.

    I'm getting giddy with anticipation of your referral. It's just around the corner...
