So we decided to buy a car, at last. We’ve suffered for long and now it’s payback time. 🙂
As limited as our budget is, M couldn’t settle for a non-Japanese car which of course, I can totally relate. In the car park, there were several Hyundai Tucson lined up, an SUV comparable in looks to a CRV but of Korean make and very cheap. But we’d rather have a smaller Toyota Yaris (model name Vitz in Japan) or the car with magic seats Honda Jazz (called Fit in Japan) than a Hyundai Tucson. Ok, this is just us, no offense to Korean car products.
We love Japanese technology; the idea of making things as compact as possible without sacrificing performance or appearance and more importantly, comfort is just great. These two cars are small, which makes parking and u-turns a doodle but with very good interior space. It also is easy on our budget which gives these cars more ‘ooomph’.
The CRV looks really nice but no room for luxury right now! In fact, anything with four wheels, a roof and a good a/c that can take us anywhere we like is just fab. We are so happy, can’t wait for our test drive! (I can finally drive again after almost a year of inactivity.)
