Jeez yesterday was so busy. Working, tutoring and then picking up our new car!!
We had a very good experience at the Toyota dealer with Paul (our sales person). He did not pressure us at all. The only problem we had was the finance person trying to push the extended warranty. Ugh. Other than that, very smooth transaction and after going over the dashboard electronics of the car (OMG – so much to learn!!) we headed home and then drove for some coffee so that each of us could drive it 😀
Here is our new Prius!
It’s actually quite roomy inside, which is nice.
It’s weird to look through the steering wheel and see nothing:
All the things to look at are up further.
There is a lot of stuff to look at, too. Technology sure has come a long way since we bought the Saturn in 2000. Eep! It’s sensory overload.
Then there are the other controls. Or Command Central as I am coming to think of it.
And note the power button. This turns the car on and off. No key! That freaks me out a little bit.
It still feels like we are driving someone else’s car. I want to find excuses to drive. Since we both work at home, we don’t actually need to go anywhere and the car won’t be driven again until tomorrow! It’s hard not to just get in and go 😀
However, today was just nice enough to get a little bike ride in, so I did that instead 😀
44 degrees, sunny and very little wind. I can handle that. We did just about 8 miles. Yay!
