We spent several months looking for the right car to replace it, and finally bought one last weekend. We've always been Toyota and Honda kind of people, but the up-and-coming, just-named-vehicle-of-the-year, #1-rated-in-Consumer-Reports Hyundai Elantra was the one that hooked us this time. We looked for months for the right car at the right price, and finally found it.
Here's our old black beauty, now sitting in a junk yard waiting for parts harvesting...
...and here's our new-to-us, surprisingly-sporty-looking 2011 Elantra, which the kids and I have named the Silver Bullet.
I'm just glad that we're done with the car shopping now!
