New Wheels....

We bought a Suburban yesterday. It is HUGE! I feel like I am driving a boat or a tank. We got a great deal and it has very low miles and has been very well maintained. We paid cash for it and now we are set for a couple of summer trips to visit family. It is hard to find a vehicle that fits our size of family and all the cargo space we require! We feel blessed to have found this great vehicle!

Our van had over 260,000 miles on it and was dying a slow death. We have nursed it along for awhile but the final straw was when the power steering and power brakes went out. Add that to no air conditioning, a radiator leak so it overheats so I have to keep filling the radiator with water and then I have to run the heat to keep it from overheating when I haven't filled it with water in the last two time to get a new vehicle don't ya think? (I know that was a very long, run-on sentence) I am so grateful Steve was driving when the power steer/brakes went out. Earlier that day I had the van full of kids and groceries going down the freeway from Costco! That would have been exciting!
