1999 vs 2008

Yippee ... I have a NEW (used) car and I love it!!!

I "LOVE" my Subaru Outbacks!!! The white car here is my OLD car (1999) and when I traded it in today, it had 182,669 miles on it and would have gone to 200,000 without a problem ... but, it was getting older, was going to need all new tires again before winter and I didn't want to put anymore money into it since we had been considering replacing it!

The blue pearl car is basically the same car but several years newer ... has under 30,000 miles and has all the "yummies" plus MORE! A few additions are: a built in Navigation system, sun roof, climate control, and several more! I really loved my other car and hated to get rid of it but I wasn't trusting it to go on long trips anymore ... so I did the next best thing ... bought a REPEAT!!

I know this probably wouldn't excite a lot of people. I don't need a FANCY car ... but I do need one that I can rely on and that I won't worry about driving in the snowey winters here in NE Ohio!
OKAY ... that's my exciting news for today!!! Thanks for letting me share it with you!!! Sorry for the bad photos ... I took them with my cell phone since I didn't think about taking my camera with me.


  1. Congrats on your new car! Don't you love getting a new car? We'll be shopping for a new truck in about a year.

  2. Congratulations Mom! I can't wait to see "it" in person. It will take a bit of getting used to...had the white one for so long. I'm really happy for ya!

  3. Hey Dar! Love the new car. Mark did a pretty good job finding this one for you. Looking forward to seeing you on Friday.

  4. Hubby brought (almost) brand new Subaru Impreza home today ;P I guess it's a day for new (to us) cars :D

  5. Awesome. You know I have always wanted a subaru!! I think also the outback but the smaller ones... the ones that are green and gold... lol.

    Wow so vehicles can make it as far as 200,000 miles? Thats good to hear since my van is at like... 155,250-ish.

    I get my van back today, it's not new to me but it'll have a new muffler and new wheel barring... lol, so it's kind of new!

  6. Yahhh Darlene....congrats on the new wheels!!!

  7. Congrats on your new wheels, Darlene! I had a first generation Outback and loved it. Finally sold it last summer. We like to say we turned it into a woody wagon - used the money to pay for the back deck my hubby built. :) Replaced the Subie with a new-to-me Jeep Grand Cherokee. Getting new wheels is always so fun! Enjoy!

  8. If you're excited then I'm excited and a dependable car is essential to all of us ladies . Have a fun weekend. Pat

  9. Drive that thing to Indiana and come say hi! Get this -- I got a new car too, about a month ago! Great minds think alike. And it gets better -- mine also had 180,000 miles on it! WOW, we must be twins! :)

  10. WOW, that is some serious mileage on the old one! I agree -- a fancy car to me is one that gets me from A to B with out any problems! I'm a Honda girl. My DH is so pleased I am such a conservative car person!!!

  11. Darlene, congratulations on your new car. How exciting for you!
    Now you can come to see me again!



Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
