Firstly, thank you so much to Mouths of Mums and Toyota for choosing me to test drive the Kluger. I am very excited to have been one of the winners.
The car arrived lunch time Yesterday. My first reaction was WOW, what a beautiful looking car. My daughter Velvet talked me into having the day off from school, so she could be here for the arrival, and Velvet was also blown away by the car. We decided we had to take it for a drive straight away. When I jumped in to the car, I just couldn’t believe how luxurious the Kluger is. Just stunning! After adjusting the seat via easy press buttons on side of seat, and Velvet going to the extreme of trying out lie down position to upright position, we decided to be on our way. Well, at least I thought we were, but much to our amusement I couldn’t start the car. Now this beautiful new car has the latest starting mechanism, all you need to do is push a button. Very cool, but it wouldn’t start? I’m thinking oh no, is this a female thing, how embarrassing, I can’t even start a push button car. A truck was parked over my drive way, and the guys unloading items for next door are calling me to ask if they need to move, I had to call out, well yes, but I don’t know how to start the car! They were killing themselves laughing, yelling to each other, Ha Ha this lady doesn’t know how to start a car!!! Yes, well I am glad I could be amusing for them, but hey, I worked it out. Your foot needs to be pressing on the brake in order for the engine to start. I think this is actually a natural thing when driving a normal car with a key, but I was, I guess confused with this new car. Gee I hope this is a normal occurrence, otherwise I look rather silly! We were on our way, the first time driving a luxury car!!! I felt comfortable from the start. Usually when you jump into a new car the brakes can be quite different to what your used to. For example I am always nearly putting us through the windshield of my husband’s car, as the brakes are sooo touchy, its terrible. But the Kluger was so perfect, its like the car fit like a glove instantly. To be continued………Thank you for reading and thank you to the lovely mums who blogged – congrats to us winners, thats so sweet! Cheers! Cathy
