I am a kindergarten teacher in Texas. This is my first blog!! (I have just dared to try and figure out how to blog so the first few posts I will be playing catch-up with the dates) On July 15 I got a new car that I LOVE and I decided to do this blog about my adventures and excursions in the Fiat 500. You might be wondering how food and a new car go together. I will be commenting on the car as well as where I go while driving the car - places to eat and fun things to do around the DWF area. So, how did I come to be the owner of a Fiat 500? I had been driving a Smart car for three years. It was a fun car to drive and got pretty great gas mileage. Downside - really tiny - only 2 seats and the engine compartment is right behind the front seats - kind of noisy. I never felt unsafe in it though. I have a husband and son who are very interested in cars and they were the ones who brought the Fiat to my attention. I liked the looks of it so we went down to test drive one. The staff at Fiat of McKinney were awesome! Everyone was friendly and easy to work with . http://www.fiatusaofmckinney.com/index.htm
Our Fiat specialist was Luke Germann. I drove the Sport model - 5 speed - only stalled it once! I was hooked but we went home to think about it. Came back the next day and bought one. Again, the professionals at Fiat of McKinney made the whole process easy. They gave me a loaner to drive home that night. It was the 6 speed automatic Lounge. I have to say the 5 speed is way more fun to drive!
