Well, it's sort of freedom, but we have a vehicle now so we are not dependent on others to take us to the store and other places (like the Megapaca, which is a thrift store).
It's a 2008 Suzuki LX7. It's a little bigger than the Grand Vitara we thought it was. It will seat 7 (the back row will be for people with short legs, though) but all of the back seats fold up for extra storage.
Tabitha loves it because it's blue, but it also drives smoothly and turns well for its size.
