New Ride

The other driver's insurance company finally got around to approving a rental car and the repair of our van.  It's only been what, 10 days, since the accident?  They move fast.  I have all kinds of bad things to say but I'll try to keep it to myself.



Anyway, I got a phone call from Ryan at Enterprise today saying I could get my rental.  He was out of mini vans but he could get me a Jeep Commander that seats 7.  Cool.  He offered to pick me up but I didn't want to subject him to the kids and I didn't have a booster for Kade so we waited until Mickey got home to go over and get it.  Here's what I get to drive until next Tuesday or Wednesday.

New Ride





The kids were so excited to have something with a little elbow room.  The Elantra is nice but it's not really made for more than four people.  I'm happy not to be stuck at home anymore.



I've only driven the Commander a little bit but it's not something I would ever buy.  We stopped for some groceries and there was no place to put them unless I put the third row of seats down.  I don't want to mess with that.  The other thing I really don't like is that I can maybe see 6" out the back window.  Backing up it going to be stressful.
