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.
