When Dear Husband and I were watching tv last night, a commercial came on for the new Cadillac STX. DH drew my attention to it (because I have an SRX....Cadillac's smaller SUV) and said, "Look at that, it has _______horsepower." I can't remember the number, but DH was impressed. I must have had a totally blank look, because he said, "That doesn't interest you in the least, does it?" And he was right! I am more about the color, line, style, interior features. I do want the car to run well, but I don't really care about horses, acceleration, etc.
I love my car! I bought it last year as an homage to Miss Betty, who, after she had stopped driving, went out on a whim and bought her self a gorgeous dark blue Cadillac DTS. My car is the same color, almost the same dashboard, but an SUV. I feel like Miss Betty is right there with me when I motor about.
How about you? What's important to you when looking for a new car? Way back when, Oldsmobile was smart enough to do some training films for their salesmen to teach them the best way to "deal" with women!
