So the Walbruch's have been car hunting for around a month, due to the unfortunate circumstances that befell our VW Passat (unfortunate as in... they couldn't build a car that lasts longer). Our friend and mechanic Andrew was helping us out a bit by checking with people in the biz (i'm guessing the car biz?) but I'll leave that to him (if you know people you know people, you know?) We were searching on our own as well, but with little to no luck. We were looking for a cross-over vehicle that could get us where we needed to go in every season this great state throws at us, without killing us at the pump. By the way, have you seen those prices? YIKES! So we finally here about one that we really want to test drive a 2008 Mazda 5 Grand Touring Series (fancy sounding, huh?) The dealership was willing to drive it to Jana's work in Saint Paul, so she could test drive it over her lunch break. (the dealership is in Minnetonka, that's service!) It was a little bit bigger than we wanted, but got the same MPG as our previous whip. (that's what they call them these days apparently) We went over the Morries on a Thursday and drove it home that night, got a great interest rate and have been thrilled ever since with it! ....AND YES IT IS A MINIVAN.... AND NO JANA IS NOT PREGNANT (seriously I don't want to have to answer those questions again, at least not for now:))
Crazy October Fun!
