Goodbye Sunfire...

...Hello Wave. Yes, we finally decided to retire the Sunfire (after 10 years and 263,000 km) and get a new vehicle - a silver 2005 Pontiac Wave 5-door (aka hatchback) Uplevel. We took it out for a full day test drive this past Saturday, during the recent spring snow storm.
The inclement weather made for a more realistic test drive. Tina loved it. She said it was "peppy" - which was evident to Adam as he tried to keep up with her. She also liked how the seating was more upright - similar to our Montana minivan. The car comes with automatic transmission, air conditioning, power windows and locks, remote keyless alarm and entry, heated side view mirrors, and a AM/FM CD player with MP3 capability. The rear seat is a 60/40 split that not only folds flat by also can be fold forward to increase the volume of space. The engine is a 1.6L DOHC. More information is available at the GM Canada website.

We are leasing the car for a period of 48 months. It's our first lease, so we hope this works out. The car comes with the standard GM warranties and roadside assistance. The Wave will be ready for pickup at Jerome Taylor this Friday at noon. Tina is a happy because she will not have to drive the gas guzzling minivan, Adam is happy to get back his gas guzzling minivan, and Corbin is, well, excited about anything new.
