Car lot cash

So we took Suzuki up on their offer to drive their Grand Vitara small SUV. Heck, they're paying us $50, why shouldn't we?

We got to the dealership about 15 minutes before closing, but they were pretty good sports about it.

I stayed at the dealer with Will while Christina (who will be the primary driver of any new vehicle we get) took it around the block.

Her observations about the vehicle were roomy interior, good acceleration, acceptable turn radius, and, overall, a better choice for us than the Toyota Rav4. All for a price we can definitely afford. So we'll move it into the maybe list with the Volvo wagon, the PT Cruiser, the VW wagon, the Subaru wagon, the Honda Fit and the Lamborghini Gallardo.

Oh, wait. Scratch the Gallardo. It takes premium fuel.
