.....we bought today.
The dealer didn't have this color in stock, but he located one nearby so we take delivery on Monday. There's only one problem. Mr. Granny isn't going to let me haul manure in it.
We had been talking new car for some time. Mainly due to Consumer Reports, we had narrowed our choices down to a Subaru Impreza Premium, Hyundai Elantra GLS, Mazda3 i Touring or a Chevrolet Cruz Eco. We haven't been extremely happy with our present Chevy Malibu, and the Cruz had a so-so rating for fuel economy, so we scratched it off the list and headed for the Subaru/Mazda dealer. We wandered around the lot, looking at the various new cars, while two salesmen watched us out the window but never made a move to come out to help us, so we decided to head for the Hyundai dealer's instead. We ended up buying the Hyundai Elantra GLS on the spot, so Subaru/Mazda may have lost a sale today.
What was so funny, and made me lean toward the Hyundai, besides the best warranty of the bunch, happened as I was loading my groceries into the trunk at the store yesterday. A lady parked next to me in her 2013 Hyundai, the Indigo Night color sparkling in the sunshine. As she got out of her car, I approached her and asked how she liked it. She loves her Elantra! From the way it rides, to the way it drives, to the heated seats......she just couldn't have been happier with her automobile!
I had originally wanted, actually had my heart set on, red. Unfortunately, red only comes with tan upholstery (it's more camel colored than tan), and we didn't care for it at all. We much preferred the black or gray interior. Indigo Night comes with dark gray, so blue won out over red.
Anyway, we will pick up our new car at the dealer's on Monday, and we're heading out of town on a short vacation on Tuesday, so it will get a good highway tryout.
