new ride!

Mar 4, 2014

Dear Green Cavalier,

We've been through a lot together. You were the second car that I've ever owned. We've been to Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia... and of course, Alberta.  

We've been on many road trips, camping adventures, and to and from work. We even went to Disneyland, and the Boeing Factory!  Once, you almost got charged by a grizzly bear! You've witnessed many arguments between my husband and I over directions and navigating. You brought home my puppy. You brought home my daughter.  We have some great memories together.
You've let me down a time or 2... you nearly died in southern California late at night climbing steep hills in the heat. We had to stop a few times on the Coquihalla during construction for fear that you'd overheat.  You have a bit of a dent in your rear bumper, but that wasn't your fault.  This summer, you left me stranded on the side of the highway in the 30 degree heat, 8 months pregnant with a full bladder. I wasn't very happy with you, but I forgave you once the tow truck arrived 2 hours later.
I knew the day that I bought you that someday we'd have to say goodbye.  Green just wasn't my colour and you were a bit of an impulse buy.  The day has come, and I'm sorry to tell you that you've been replaced.  I've found somebody else... somebody younger, and more attractive. Somebody with all wheel drive. Somebody with command start. Somebody SILVER.  My husband has always wanted to purchase a second Subaru, and since he's the one that knows about/cares about/fixes our vehicles, I wasn't about to argue with his decision.  It's not the SUV that I told myself I'd own when I became a mother, but it's no mini-van either... thank goodness.

Don't take it personally, Cavalier. We just weren't meant to stay together. You're in high demand and I'm certain that your new owner will love you and take you on many adventures.
Goodbye, Cavalier.  Welcome to the family, Impreza.
