So yesterday we took the plunge. No more test drives.

Over the past year we have test driven a Mini Cooper, Mustang, several Cadillac CTSs, even a Beamer and several other nondescript vehicles.

The Mini was fun to drive– kind of like driving a go cart, and I’d still like to have one someday but it doesn’t fit our needs at this point.

The Mustang was a little cheap looking inside, too difficult to see out the back for us “shorties”, and a lot of $$.

The Beamers are nice– 3 series, I wouldn’t mind having one of them some day but it just wasn’t what we needed at this point in life.

The Cadillacs CTSs were really, really nice but the gas mileage wasn’t all that good and + it takes premium fuel– YIKES!

We settled on an ’08 Pontiac Grand Prix. This is the last year Pontiac will produce the Grand Prix– a very successful line. It will be replace with the G8 in the coming weeks. The Grand Prix is easy to drive, has some GREAT safety features– like On Star [I’ll get to that in just a bit], and will be a great vehicle for Sari Beri to learn to drive on. We’ve owned a Grand Prix before, back in 2000, and it gave us good service– it’s still in the family, so we’re happy to own one again.

The On Star is awesome! If you run out of gas, they bring you gas. If you have a flat, they come and fix it. If you have a wreck, they notify emergency personnel. They can unlock your car if you lock the keys in it, find your car for you in a parking lot if you forget where you parked it and give you directions if you are lost. If your car is ever stolen, they can tell the police exactly where it is and then… this is the best part– when the police tell the On Star people it’s safe, the On Star people can slow the vehicle to a stop preventing high speed chases, damage to your vehicle and possibly save innocent lives! I had no idea On Star did all that. Now I’m thinking I wouldn’t drive a car without it.
