The one and only experience I had with a Chrysler vehicle is the one I learned to drive on. My mom’s Chrysler Fifth Avenue. You know back in the 80s when hood ornaments were a thing. My mom’s was black with a maroon velvety interior and the back seat looked like huge, plush sofa. Knowing how my dad purchases vehicles, it was most likely a luxury sedan at the time, but really for a 16-18 year old…well let’s just say my parents didn’t have to worry about me drag racing in it.
#FordTX invited my husband and I to a VIP test drive in a Mustang last week. The Mustang Bucket List event was held on the Grapveine Mills Mall Parking Lot. The stop in the DFW area was pretty appropriate because Texas is the world’s top-selling Mustang market!
Well it’s been almost a week since we dropped our daughter off at university. It’s been a rough start for all of us. I’ve already had to mail her money due to the irresponsibility of someone else and today we’re making a trip out to the dorms to drop off some supplies that she needs for tomorrow (that she was only told about yesterday). We’re hoping these are our biggest worries of the semester and everything else will go like clockwork and she’ll keep her grades up. The great thing is she is making lots of friends!
We had four extra people visiting who flew in from out of town during our daughter’s high school graduation. As we drive a Honda CR-V and a VW Jetta, both which only seat five people, I was a bit perturbed that we were going to have to drive both vehicles everywhere the week our guests were here.
STI Drive came to my rescue though and loaned us a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander SE for the week, which just happens to be a vehicle that seats seven people.
A few weeks ago my husband’s sister let us know that she would be in San Antonio and inquired on whether we would be willing to drive down to spend a couple of days with her. As my husband hasn’t seen her in a number of years, had some vacation days from last year to use up and we were meaning to drive down in spring anyway to visit the sites and some friends who live there as well, we decided to plan a short road trip.
STI Drive stepped up to the plate and offered us a 2014 Kia Soul to use for our mini road trip and we were eager to see how this compact car would perform.
