Car Shopping

This is a sponsored post. As always, all opinions are my own.

The last time we thought about buying cars and did any research into cars was in 2003! At that time, I purchased a Hyundai Santa Fe, and Andy got a Honda Accord. We have been extremely happy with both cars as they are just as reliable and low maintenance as we hoped they would be.

We actually ended up selling the Hyundai Santa Fe with 180,000 miles (and running great) earlier this year because our older son was selling his 2010 Nissan Versa. Since we knew that he had taken very good care of the car, it was seven years newer, and that it had a lot fewer miles than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it made sense to buy the car from him. He ended up with a little more money, and we got a car we can trust and that will hopefully serve us well for years to come. 

But this still leaves Andy with the 2003 Honda Accord. While the car still runs very well, it’s time to get a new one. We would like to get another SUV as it’s very convenient to have a car to transport bigger items, go on vacation easily, etc. 


Where to Find Reliable Car Information

Since neither one of us is “into cars,” we had to find a place to gather reliable information about cars to consider, and we were very happy when we came across has a wealth of information about cars, including a very useful videos and reviews section. What I appreciate about the reviews section is that it includes critical reviews that give you the facts straight up. With the help of, we were able to narrow down our choices.

The next step will be to visit several dealerships to test drive the cars, decide on a make and model, and then buy from the dealership that offers the best deal. Stay tuned to find out what car we’ll end up getting – I’ll make sure to reveal it in one of my Sentence a Day posts in the next few months! 

Questions: When was the last time you purchased a car? What kind of car did you buy? How did you research the car before you bought it? Are you happy with you purchase?

Be well,
