It's new car time!

My lease is about to run out, so I’ve been doing some thinking about what to get next. At first I thought about going the SUV route, until I remember how much fun it was for Heather (all 5’0″ of her) to get into a Ford Explorer that we test drove a few years back. Then I thought, well, the economy is still in bad shape – maybe you should go for an inexpensive midsize.

Then I saw the Volvo S60.

I currently drive a Volvo S70, which is a great car, but is a bit on the “boxy” side. They’re safe as all hell (which is important when you commute into Boston along with a few hundred thousand insane drivers) and to tell you the truth, it was the most comfortable car I’ve ever driven. Well, after being available for only three years, Volvo is dropping that line in favor of the S60.

The car is very stylish. While the S70 was a four door sedan, the S60 is a sports sedan in every way. And it’s fast – 200 HP. I also opted for AWD, CD player, power sun roof, leather interior…

…and most importantly cup holders…

I get to pick it up tomorrow afternoon. Tommy’s as excited as I am.
