A few months ago I contacted the Dave Ramsey organization and learned about Rachel Cruz. Rachel is Dave Ramsey's daughter and she has a wealth of knowledge about finances including how to go to college with zero debt, etc. I landed a series of interviews with Rachel and this month, I hit the road headed for Nashville to interview her at the Dave Ramsey organization.
Before I left, I stopped by Bob Hurley Ford and dropped off my current car to grab a ride in a new 2013 Ford Escape. I tried it out for a week driving it from Tulsa to Tennessee and it was a complete blast!
My kids and I were THRILLED about picking up this vehicle. It is the perfect combination of a SUV and a car, I was very surprised. It had enough room for all of my gear and of course, everything I bought on the road. Plus, there was a ton of room for the passengers. It sat 5 people (including the driver) very comfortably. It was also higher off the ground than a car so I felt like I was driving my SUV again which was very nice.
The best part was the gas. For only $33 I filled up the tank and drove 357 miles! I could not believe how great the gas mileage was, we averaged 26 mpg on the highway which is better than my car!
I found a new favorite store while I was there too, Two Old Hippies, if you visit Nashville be sure to stop by! I thought my shirt matched the van pretty well!
In the spirit of full disclosure, we did have one little hitch. Something inside the car was not snapped on tightly, so in the middle of downtown Nashville, it overheated. The good news was that the folks at Bob Hurley Ford moved fast and I was quickly placed in another car while they fixed the problem. I will tell you though, I missed this Escape while it was gone. This is one vehicle I fell in love with.
Once I got it back, I used My Ford Touch to navigate my way to the Dave Ramsey organization.
I had a BLAST with Rachel Cruz and I cannot wait to share with you her series of segments and blog posts for our Money Saving Queen readers. HUGE thanks to Rachel for letting me stop by and HUGE thanks to Bob Hurley for letting me drive the new 2013 Ford Escape.
