New Wheels

A few months back we got a new set of wheels. If you remember, my car's engine blew back in November, so I have been borrowing my in-law's Suburban, which I have been so grateful for, but the gas was killing us. Granted, I don't drive all that much because I don't have to work every day, but 15mpg hurts nonetheless.  Plus, every time I would come to a stop, the engine would cut off. And most of the places I drive are in the middle of nowhere with minimal phone service. Talk about nerve-wracking!

So anyway, of course I am a researcher. I am a seller's worst enemy. Buying a car is a huge deal to me and I want to know exactly what I'm getting-it's a lot of money, at least to us it is.


So, we settled on a 2009 Nissan Murano SL AWD with all the bells and whistles and only 19,500 miles on it. Black with tan leather just like we've both always wanted. And we are in love. I highly recommend it to anyone. The only complaint we have is that it takes premium fuel. But, it gets pretty good mileage for an AWD SUV/Crossover. 23 city/26 hwy.
This was our 5th anniversary gift-and many other holiday gifts :)
Notice we did not go on vacation this year.





I want to thank my husband for working so hard to provide for us and for getting us a new car. He is so generous and I am one happy and blessed lady.

  1. I have a 2003 Murano and it has been a WONDERFUL car. It is getting some mileage on it, but I already know my next car will also be a Murano!

    Hope your newbie treats you well :)

  5. Why does yours only take premium gas? Is that the same for mine and I've been neglecting it??...
