New Car Search Begins on Wordless Wednesday

The need for a new/larger vehicle has become more than apparent around our house. Yesterday I took the opportunity to test drive the first car that I thought might be good replacement for our family sedan.

More on my observations later.


  1. Ha! Its no Ferrari, but If you are serious about needing a new and larger car I recommend the Kia Rondo. We bought one in January after an exhaustive search and LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE it! It has a HUGE interior (with storage under the seats), MASSIVE trunk (including hidden compartments), all the bells and whistles, and feels like a regular sized car when you drive it. We absolutely adore our car! We can fit 3 car seats in the back seat too, which is a nice perk! We got the 5 seater (which gives room for a HUGE trunk) but you can also make it a 7 seater (MUCH smaller trunk). I can’t tell you how much we love it. If you wanna take a peek/test drive ours, just let me know! LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOOOVE it!

  2. I really love my Ford Freestyle. It is a 7 seater, or a 5 seater with a huge cargo area. Unfortunately…it is no longer in production. The Ford Flex is the replacement, which is a bit too retro looking for me! But also supposed to be a great car.

    If you are going to only have a 4 person family..I’d check out the Mazda 5. It has 3 rows of 2 seats, and with the back ones folded, a decent amount of cargo space. One of the great things is the side-sliding rear doors. I can’t count how many times I wish for those when I am in a tight parking spot, trying to squeeze kids out of their car seats. It’s like a micro-mini van!
