People carriers, especially with 7 seats are cool and I don’t care what you say.
As many of you will know, a couple of months ago our family car went in for it’s MOT and never came back out. After a week or so of wondering what we were going to do, a friend almost angel-like came to our rescue with a great offer.
A little back story.
Before Donetta and I met I managed to bag myself a Vauxhall Astra 55 plate and it was AWESOME. We’re talking pre-wife and kids so this thing was my pride and joy. It was as good looking on the outside as it was inside. The Vauxhall dashboard and interior design has always been a favourite of mine and I still miss my Astra to this day.
It was amazing that Corben was at the time on his way to make our family a 5 rather than an Astra filling 4. Although it did mean it was time for me to let go of my first love for the greater good of the family. We’ve gone on to have about 4 or 5 different cars over the years and none have even come close to my Astra.
Back to the present day and our angel-like friend mentioned earlier had a 7-seater Vauxhall Zafira, yes that’s right, basically the family version of the Astra! Ever since getting to that time of life when a good people carrier gets you going, as opposed to a 3-door hatchback with a go-faster stripe, I’ve longed for another Vauxhall.
Now, our current circumstances have landed us a 57 plate Vauxhall Zafira and we couldn’t be happier, it really is the exact car I’d been looking for, unless you’re throwing me your bank card with unlimited resources obviously! We’ve got bluetooth to bang out some Westlife via Spotify, we’ve got those ever so useful extra 2 seats in the back to throw the least favourite child in (Joke obviously, or is it?!) and we even have a built in DVD player where the sound comes through the car stereo, its AMAZING!
Our DVD player is a custom extra but being the ambitious forward thinker I am, we’ve been speaking with PG Motors about their latest Vauxhall range, in particular the family cars available today.
I can dream can’t I?!
As much as I love our family car I’d swap it for this Vauxhall Zafira TOURER tomorrow, I mean look at these things, they’re epic. They’re the upgraded version of what we have so they’re naturally a strong choice for us in a good few years.
I’m going to guess that many of you reading are more like ourselves than not, in terms of finances for a new car. I think it’s fair to say there’s only few people that can go a purchase a brand spank motor, especially high end one’s like this. When we were drooling over what could be on the PG Motors Unbeatable Car website, we spotted they also deal USED cars, so maybe it’s not such a stretch for us to be thinking about an upgrade.
I’m really happy going back to Vauxhall, I have to say they’re my favourite for sure. Our Zafira has all the features mentioned above that really do make family car journeys much more bearable, the design of these cars make them nice to drive and their so spacious and comfortable. It’s everything we want in a family car.
