Yeah, I'm more on the practical side of things. ;D

Sure you are....  What color is yours?

I knew the Spark was a lot smaller and NOT a hybrid and less expensive than a Sonic with a different front end and better mpg, I had read it in a current auto magazine, thought somebody found something else I missed about it.

Silver, of course.  All my vehicles and bikes are/were silver.  Less washing involved.  I'm sure I could get better gas mileage if I washed the dirt off of it and waxed it, but what the heck.  I get good gas mileage out of a low maintenance vehicle and it has enough power to do what I need it to do, fully loaded. It has plenty of room in the rear seats (more than my Rav4) as well and it can carry a 2x4x8 with the windows all closed.  It's a great vehicle and the people that make fun of them don't have a clue about it.  I've had mine for over 7 years and I hope to keep it another 7.

I haven't seen anybody mention the new Dodge Dart. Based on a Fiat design, it so much better than the car it replaced. Looks like they might sell a few of them. Makes you wonder why on earth they cancelled the Neon.

I could be wrong but I don't think they're available quite yet.

Got plenty of them sitting in the dealership right by my house in NE OH for the last month. Nice car.

I went to see the Dart yesterday and they sold them all. I did see a very good looking Chrysler 200 S. Very good looking car and that 3.6 liter engine is awesome. Although I do love the Hemis my vehicles have, but this thread is looking for more mpg. I can get 25mpg in the Charger 5.7 V8, but it is a lot of work and not worth it. I run about 19-20 mpg all the time.

Daaaaang! If Toyotas looked that cool, I will be hoping over to the dealer!! Well, bad news is wife is having cold feet. Good news is, Veloster turbo with m/t is no where to be found (good news  because if we find one, I will be sleeping with the dogs).

Subaru Impreza, Outback Sport model especially. 8) The Prius is a pitiful excuse for a car by the way........ :stirpot:

Rated very low in build quality, not that reliable, and who wants to deal with batteries? There is a bit more salt in the wounds Jimmy boy! :yikes:
