Default Mom got a new car...

She traded her 2008 Saab 9-3 2.0t Convertible in on this...


Not the way I would have went with my car purchase, but hey...to each their own i guess. It's a 2005 GMC Envoy XL Denali.

I cant understand for the life of me why she keeps downgrading. I wish she would start asking me to help her with her car purchases. She has been all over the place the last 6 years. She has had:

2002 Chrysler Concorde Limited
2005 Toyota Camry XLE
1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP
2008 Saab 9-3 2.0T Conv
and now this.

Throughout all of this, she has Kept the Lexus LS600hL for clients and business, but she needs her personal runabout.

Not a bad IMO but the grand prix are really nice,love the 3800 best engine made.she must needed the space looks like she has the 3rd seat too.
I love car shopping,I've shop for a few people myself,they know I know my cars.
Most important is they get what their needs are and seems she needed more room,maybe she plans on more traveling?my sister inlaw for one but think it was a 05,I like Chevy/gmc.

I agree, I'd love to have a supercharged 3800 GTP. Not a vette, but a fun, reliable car that looks pretty sporty.

The gmc I'm not a huge fan of, I like the trailblazer better but they are basically the same. The inline six is a good motor if that's what it has.

a buddy of mine had an envoy just like that, he loved it and said it was super reliable. Personally I would have gone with the trailblazer SS

I TRIED and Tried to get my wife to go for the Trailblazer SS! Alas, she wanted a Honda Pilot. Not an exciting vehicle, but it has been flawless at least.

the Envoy is a good vehicle for a lot of room in a smaller package. -Should be a fine vehicle for her

Found out she kept the Saab, and this is paid for. She needs the space to haul around my brother's kids, and just in general for taking road trips with the dogs and my dad. My dad is happy because now they can take road trips and tow the bass boat, and still do decent on gas, instead of taking the lifted F450 diesel. Thing is so souped up it gets like 12mpg on the interstate. Total price out the door for the Envoy was $8,000, and it has 110k on it.

Yeah, but I think she could have done better...I hate the trailblazer, everyone I know that had one has had serious and/or repeat issues...but oh well...not my money.
