Driveshop To The Rescue with the New 2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature Edition #DriveMazda

Disclosure: Thanks to Drive Shop for giving me the opportunity to drive the 2017 Mazda CX-9 for 7 days.  No compensation was exchanged. Opinions expressed here are always my own. I have a confession to make..... I have a love/hate relationship with my current vehicle. I love that I don't have any payments to make every month since I've had it for over 9 years and I love that my husband is able to fix almost anything that is wrong with the car. But.....I hate the fact that it's an older … [Read more...]

{Review} Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander for seven days. All opinions are 100% my own. Every time I get a vehicle loaned from Drive Shop, I make it a point to go somewhere miles away so that I can get a good feel for the way the vehicle drives and handles on the road. So that's exactly what I did; I took a small road trip with my youngest to New Jersey to visit my sister for the weekend. I was beyond grateful … [Read more...]

Hittin’ The Road to Lancaster, PA in the New 2017 Mazda CX-3 Grand TouringAWD #DriveShop #DriveMazda

Disclosure: Thanks to Drive Shop for giving me the opportunity to drive the 2017 Mazda CX-3 for ten days.  Opinions expressed are always my own. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love going on road trips.  I truly enjoy the adventure, the open road and the quality time spent with my loved ones. We can chat, crack jokes, listen to music and even play games. A few weekends ago, my family and I packed up the Mazda CX-3 and took off to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for a fun 80's themed … [Read more...]

Weekend Getaway to Hershey Park in the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE for one full week. All opinions are 100% my own. No monetary compensation was received. I'm accustomed to driving an SUV since I've owned a Kia Sorento for nine years so I wasn't quite excited about driving around in a Mitsubishi Mirage for a week.  Although I was definitely grateful to Drive Shop for providing the Mirage for our Hershey Park road trip, I really … [Read more...]

Back-To-School Shopping with the 2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD @MazdaUSA #DriveMazda #DriveShop

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mazda, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mazda CX-9 for one whole week. All opinions are 100% my own. I dread back-to-school shopping every year like the plague! The running around, trying to score deals, comparing prices  and the crowds are not my thing at all. Heck - walking though the mall is not my thing neither but it's inevitable. It's something I must do.  I don't want my kids going back to school with nothing. What kind of mother … [Read more...]

Driving Around in a 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring #DriveShop #DriveMazda

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mazda, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mazda CX-5 for one whole week. All opinions are 100% my own. Last week, I had the amazing privilege to test drive this blue beauty: A 2016 Mazda CX-5 for a full seven days.  I test drove one other vehicle a few years back, so I was beyond excited to test drive this sporty crossover since we are in the market to either purchase or lease a new vehicle within the next year. The Mazda CX-5 … [Read more...]

Lancaster, PA – Road Trip With The Family: Part 2. VW Style

Disclosure: The Volkswagen Routan was given to us as a loaner for review purposes only.  It was made possible by the MWW Group. Thank you so much for making our road trip "extra special"  Amy. ;) OK, so it's been a long 49 days since our family road trip with the star of the trip, the Volkswagen Routan. I know, I know. That was way over a month ago and you must be thinking, ok, why is she writing about this now? Honestly, life got in the way especially when there's kids involved and … [Read more...]

Road Trip With The Family: Heading to Washington, D.C. VW Routan Style

Well folks, it's that time for families to start on their new ventures now that school is out! With that in mind, my family and I will be going on a small road trip to Pennsylvania and we're making two stops along the way: Lancaster & Philadelphia.  I have family in both cities (my Dad is also buried in Lancaster) so it's mainly to visit family and of course to get away for several days. Our last stop before heading back to New York will be Washington, D.C.  It will be the first time for … [Read more...]
