2015 Hyundai Genesis {Giveaway – no it’s NOT a vehicle, sorry}

Hyundai Genesis 2015

Last week, when the kids weren’t taking the big, yellow school limosine to school, they had the opportunity to be chauffeured around in a luxury sedan, the 2015 Hyundai Genesis. What a beautiful ride it was! To start off with, it was my favourite colour, blue. And it wasn’t a subtle blue either, it was a nice, bright blue that made me smile every time I looked at it. I’m not joking! Blue makes me smile, ok?! This car is a large car with quite a bit of space. The kids had MORE than enough leg room in the back, … Continue reading

My Family Took a @HondaCanada #HondaStaycation

Over the Christmas holidays, I had the opportunity to test drive a Honda Odyssey. Well, for the first few days, we were iced in, literally, so I couldn’t really drive anywhere! I was so bummed because I had this beautiful new van sitting in our driveway that I couldn’t drive anywhere! BUT, once the ice storm came and left and once we finally dug and scraped our way out, I was loving driving this mini van around town with the family. Out of the good handful of vehicles that I have had the wonderful opportunity to test drive, this felt … Continue reading

Pining for a @Hyundai Santa Fe XL #HyundaiDrive2013

Back in July, I test drove a Hyundai Santa Fe XL for a week. I was extremely excited to test this vehicle out because back in May, I test drove the Hyundai Santa Fe. I wrote a post about the inside of the Santa Fe because that is what I really love the most about this vehicle! My husband will testify that when I pack for a road trip, I tend to pack everything but the kitchen sink. I pack for all of the “what ifs”. I don’t know if it’s because I am used to packing for the cottage … Continue reading

It’s About the Little Things in the @FordCanada #Explorer

Back in June, Ford provided me with a 2013 Ford Explorer Sport for a week. As you know, I love to test out new wheels, who wouldn’t, right? But, it is also my way of finding the best suited vehicle for my family of four as our current vehicle has caused us some challenges recently! It was an amazing opportunity for me as this vehicle used to be my dream vehicle when I was much younger. This was my first time ever driving a Ford Explorer and admittedly, I was surprised with how BIG it felt. It wasn’t a bad … Continue reading

My Week with the Santa Fe #HyundaiDrive2013

I love to drive new vehicles. There is something about the feel of a new set of wheels! Even if they aren’t my own, I still love trying out new features, the new car smell (even if it isn’t great for me) and the general feel of the road in a new vehicle. I was very excited to be approached by Hyundai Canada a few weeks ago. They asked me test out the 2013 Santa Fe for a week and I jumped on the opportunity pretty quick, I’m sure they could feel my excitement through the computer screen! We had … Continue reading

My kids are starting to get used to me test driving vehicles now after our fun experiences with a Ford Flex and the Ford Escape!

So, without further adieu, please welcome a Ford Taurus Review from a 7 year old…..AND of course, whatever my daughter does, my 4 year old son is always eager to jump in! … Continue reading

Driving an #Escape with @FordCanada {REV!EW}

Our current family vehicle has seen better days. We bought it just before we were married back in 2003. Because of this, I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a vehicle that will replace our current one when it decides to kick the bucket. What shall we drive next?! I always like to go to Ford to check out my options and this time, we test drove a 2013 Ford Escape… The Outside:I love the looks of the outside of the 2013 Escape. I find it very pleasing to the eyes and although brown typically isn’t my favourite colour, I … Continue reading

My Favourite Ford Flex Things… (@FordCanada)

Driving the Ford Flex was a wonderful adventure for my family! Here are some aspects of the Ford Flex that impressed me: It all starts at the steering wheel!I love the fact that you don’t need your key out of your purse and in the ignition to start the car! BUT, it must be somewhere in the vehicle which is a nice safety feature.The Ford Flex is a beautiful looking vehicle right down to the wheels.It’s all about the buttons. These are in the back, an open/close button as well as 3 different opens for stow and go, bench up … Continue reading
