Default Long overdue . . . big DD upgrade

Been driving a 2004 RAV4 with over 150,000 miles as a DD. It was the car my kids learned to drive on and also took to college. Then I began driving it when the kids moved away. Great little truck, never needed any major repairs. It might have run forever. But the time had come . . .

. . . so I picked up a brand new leftover 2017 Audi SQ5. Never had an Audi before but the interior is beautiful. Seats are incredible. Exterior is white with black accents. 21" wheels. Flatbottom steering wheel. Supercharged engine with 354 hp . . . it is sneaky smooth and quick.

I have heard some bad stories about Audis, but we've heard similar about Corvettes. So I went for it. Big upgrade over a 14 year old Toyota..

Very nice, Audis have the best interiors. Probably not as reliable, but it is much more enjoyable to drive.
