2008 Mazda CX-9, with all sorts of awesome options. Navigation, leather, Bose speakers, heated seats, dual climate air control, back seat air control, sunroof/moonroof, 3rd row seating that folds down and looks hidden(I really like that!), one touch start, yadda yadda. No, we don't need all of that by any means but to find it all on a used car that's perfect price range, we'll take it!
We have the auto loan approved and we're ready to go pick it up but we just now realized that it's just FWD and not 4WD.
Where we live now, we don't get a lot of snow (this past winter we got like 6-8", the year before that maybe 2"). We do like to drive up to the mountains and go snowboarding though.
Let me also add that my husband is in the Navy and we have no idea where we will be moving in 2013.
We're expecting our first child soon (with more to follow shortly after), have two golden retrievers and this is the perfect sized SUV for what we are looking for.
Do we still go for it despite the drive type?!
