More Car Stuff

Last Saturday, like most other Saturdays lately, we were out looking for cars.  My lastest test drive was an '02 Subaru Outback.  It's an attractive vehicle with all wheel drive.  That makes it good in all this snow we've been having here in the "Sunny South".  It was nice enough, I guess, but it felt small on the road, and a little cramped inside.  The door and the seat were so close to each other, there was hardly room enough to get my hand to the seat adjustment controls - and I don't have big hands.  However, there was something wrong with it that I can't put my finger on.  It had a slight hesitation on take off, which my previous experience with an Outback told me wasn't normal.  I decided that it wasn't the car for me.

Since we are both in the market for a car, hubby drove a Toyota Corolla ('02 maybe).  It was fine after he got the seat and mirrors adjusted for his comfort.  We didn't see anything wrong with the car.  It was even a nice color, beige/gold (we don't like silver).  The thing holding him back is that it wasn't as comfortable as the Accord.  Well, of course, that's another step up the Honda ladder. 

So that concluded another day of car shopping in ridiculously cold weather.
