Ian and I bought a new car! I've had a tolerate-hate relationship with the 'ol burgandy Grand Prix for the past two years, and with well over 100,000 miles on it and a few thousand in repairs in the past 6 months, it felt like we were driving a ticking time bomb.
So we traded it on in for a shiny, white Toyota Yaris. It's a hatchback, or "five-door lift back." I never thought of myself as a hatchback kind of girl until I saw these adorable little cars zipping around town. They get great gas mileage, as safe as a compact can get, and... the Yaris is affordable for two grad students trying to scrape by
But seriously, isn't this just the cutest little car?!?
