Enjoying the Ride

Last fall I wrote a post here about my experience driving a Toyota Corolla and that someday I would buy a Toyota Prius. Eight months later, sooner than I expected, I now own a Toyota Prius and I love it.  Although I previously mentioned I was interested in getting a Prius V for its added room, the mpg is a lot lower than the others, so I went with an older model with better fuel efficiency.

I worked with my credit union, Georgia’s Own and their car finder program, where all I did was give them a few specifics on what I was looking for and within 48 hours I had the car delivered to me. Now, that’s what I call customer service (thank you, Justina W. and Dottie E.).  It’s a whole new world driving a hybrid car and I enjoy the ride even more now, because I drive a car that not only benefits the environment but also my wallet.

Take a look at my old Toyota and my “new to me” one side by side:

Casually speaking and all the best,



    1. Thanks, Shannon. I love it, and it makes me feel like a (responsible) grown-up, well in theory at least. There are so many types of hybrids to choose from these days. Do your research and see what works best for you. Happy car hunting!
