Meet Wiley

I did it.  I finally bought my first new car (mmmm, breathe that new car smell in…) and as promised, I’m introducing you to her here.  You all followed along as I checked out the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with a one week test drive in February, and those of you who follow me on Twitter watched as I not only took her for a spin, but also fell in love and then vowed to make her my own!  Now I’d like you to meet Wiley, the newest member of the Resourceful Family:

I’ve not had a single moment of buyer’s remorse, which says a lot about the Nissan Pathfinder and very little about my confidence in making large purchases.  I can barely commit to a new pair of jeans, yet Wiley has felt like a smart decision from moment one.  I continue to soak up the luxury of a seat and steering wheel that automatically move to let me get out of the car without bumping my knees and then move back into place when I start the car.  And look how great she does in the snow…

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship…

Thanks for joining me on the journey!

All opinions and car payments are my own.  No compensation was provided for this post and the AMAZEBALLS price I got on this beauty was negotiated by me.  Yeah, boy.

    Sweet wheels! I’m glad to hear you’re still pleased with your purchase. That’s definitely a good thing. 🙂

    • Yes, and especially exciting since I hate spending money! LOL

  • Congratulations! What a beautiful baby. The interior is amazing, too. Nothing quite as good as that new car smell. Except for maybe the rush of negotiating a killer deal – awesome!
