Picking up our new Kia Rondo

Collecting our new car

I’ve made a short post on our family website already, but I’ll mention it here as well…

We’ve bought a new car, a brand new car, a Kia Rondo.

My wife, Mandy, has been wanting a seven seat car for some time now.  With three kids, if we went out anywhere as a family either in her Falcon wagon, or my Mazda, then all of the seats would be full.  There was no room for friends or family to tag along.  We weren’t too keen on a mini-bus (like a Kia Carnival) or an SUV (like a Ford Territory), but when we had a look at the Rondo it ticked all the boxes.

Now the Falcon has been traded and Mandy gets around town in the brand new Kia.  I get a bit frustrated with all the modern features (has the human race become so lazy we can’t turn headlights or wipers on without an “auto-on” feature?), but that’s ok because Mandy will be behind the wheel mostly.

We’ve also treated ourselves to Essendon Bombers supporter number plates, just to be different.
