I need a new car :/

So, the writing is on the wall. My beloved Impala, Pearl, is in her death throes. This makes me ridiculously, neurotically sad because I really love this car, maybe because it was the first car I ever purchased and paid for completely on my own. She represents something. And she’s a perfect fit. I’m going to miss this car. I actually dream that I’ve traded it in, and then spend the rest of the dream desperately trying to find it. I never do. It’s a sad, hollow dream.


Yes… I’m that attached. And that neurotic.


I have not dreamed that I’ve lost my husband or kids.




Anyway… I am considering a couple of cars and want to hear from anyone with feedback on Chevy Cruze or Equinox, Honda CRV or Accord, Toyota Camry, or Subaru Legacy or Impreza. The Cruze, CRV and Accord are currently my top contenders.


I would get another Impala, but it will never be another Pearl. It will never compare.

  1. I know how you feel. I hate having to break in a new car. Our Honda Accord is pushing 300,000 miles and still performing like a champ, plus it “fits” me!


  2. While I won’t pretend I know anything about cars, my mom has a 2010 Toyota Camry and it is her baby. She is obsessed!

    I personally love Honda’s after Scot’s little Honda Civic served us so well.

    And I’m sorry to hear about Pearl 😦 When Mr. Jones dies I will be very sad, indeed. He was the first car that I picked out. While I was very fortunate to be able to buy my Nana’s old car, and to have my dad just give me his Lumina (which served us VERY well for 5 lovely years), it was exciting to choose my own road warrior companion!

    Maybe you guys can have a memorial service for Pearl when her time comes. And just think of all the wonderful memories you’ll make with your NEW ride!
