New Car

The Internet is a wonderful thing. Kathy has been looking for a new car for a couple of years. While she looked at several makes and models, her dream car was a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Last week, she received an email from a salesman in Peoria, Arizona (north and west of Phoenix) that they had a used 2008 model that had been leased for a year and only had 6100 miles.  The dealership hired someone to drive it from Peoria to our house in Tucson where we signed the purchase papers on our dining room table.  Kathy will now have a ride for her 40-mile daily commute that gets 27 miles to the gallon in the city and it has seats that better accommodate her tender lower back.
