There's nothing like a good family vacation to test a vehicle. With two kids in car seats and 3 adults, nothing short of an SUV with third row seating would work, and something small like a crossover might seat us all, but leave us cramped. That's why I was really excited when we were offered a 2015 Yukon to review for this trip! We've driven a Yukon XL Denali before and loved it so much. We didn't get the XL this time, but we still had plenty of space for everyone and our luggage! Meet Violet, The Great Purple Beast. At first I couldn't decide what color this vehicle was.

Earlier this month my husband's entire family set off on a 12 day adventure from north Texas to Minnesota and back. Since Hub's parents were also traveling and the guys had some work to catch up on, we split up and us ladies took our small car with the baby and Hubs, our oldest son, my brother in-law and father in-law drove the Yukon XL that GM Texas loaned to us for the trip. I was excited to meet up with the guys when they arrived in Detroit Lakes, MI.

Most cars are comfortable for driving to and from the store and running local errands, but what about extended trips? The Flex impressed me! After a four-hour trip I was able to hop out of the car without back or leg pain. My tailbone was fine. My neck and back were free of kinks. I don’t remember the last time I drove to Dallas and back without feeling like a semi-truck hit me somewhere along the way!
Imagine my surprise when I saw the new 2013 Sentra from Nissan and realized it’s the same size as my car, gets the same gas mileage and is WAY cheaper. It’s also beautiful, comfortable and stylish… three things I never imagined I’d say about a Sentra. Starting at just $15,990 and topping out at less than $20,000, the all new 2013 Sentra is a very economical choice for small families.
