Sometimes you just have to admit you’re getting old. With a baby on the way and two little boys at home, we’re rapidly outgrowing our Mirage. So last week, my wife and I went down to Brookdale Mitsubishi to trade in our sporty looking Mirage for something a little more family friendly.

I liked a mercury grey Outlander, but my wife really liked a beautiful rally red Outlander Sport.  It had all the safety features she wanted – Four Wheel Drive, child safety locks, electronic stability control, brake assist, and 4-Wheel ABS. I liked the iPod/MP3 Input, alloy wheels, and wireless cell phone hookup. Both of us loved the sporty look and didn’t feel that we sacrificed at all.

So now we have more than enough room for the family and didn’t need to trade young and sporty for old and boxy, not  just yet anyway.
