A few months ago I decided we really needed to upgrade our car. We’ve had it for a few years, it was the first SUV I ever owned and now that I’ve had it for 4 years I know what I would do differently. Rear climate controls are a must if you have children or pets that ride in the car. I have heard Peyton complain so many times, like nearly everytime she’s in the car, that she is either too hot or too cold. But the only way to fix it is for me to blast the air conditioner or heat from the front and hope it reaches her. I even resorted to carting around blankets in the back seat for her during the colder months. Then I thought about how the dogs must feel when they are in the cargo area. I’m pretty sure the heat and air conditioning does not get back there very well.
Third-row seating is another feature I really wish we had gotten. We have a big extended family and I cannot fit both my nephews, my niece and my daughter all in the car at the same time. It really limits how we can do things together as a family.
Now I had to start car searching for an SUV that has all these features and maybe a few more that I didn’t even know I wanted. That’s when I head to Cars.com and started to do a little research. There is so much information! I can find out about several different brands and models without having to run to multiple dealerships or review several websites. Plus, they even have a video and review section where there are in detail reviews. You get to hear the good, the bad and the ugly about each car. I love it! I feel like I’m getting a real, down to earth review of a car. It’s information that I need to know to make an informed decision.
After watching a few review videos and sorting through info I found the SUV I wanted. And guess what? Peyton and I are driving around in a new SUV that has third-row seating, rear air vents, satellite radio (remember I said there would be features I didn’t know I needed!) and it has these funky “airplane” lights inside.
If you are thinking about buying a car and are not sure where to start, start with Cars.com. They have tons of information that will help you narrow your choices down and find the perfect car for you.
