TaDa!



This is the new "member of the family," my little ball of sunshine....

It's a five-speed Honda Fit.

great little car - how was it on the highway? not that I intend to buy a new vehicle anytime soon, but you never know :)

Feels pretty good on the highway, good mileage too, over 35 on the first tank.

How is Kevin taking the big change?

Cute. Very nice little choice I think.
Great milage without paying for that over-priced/hyped Prius.

Anne said...

Kevin seems to like the new car.

Anne said...

The difference in price is about 1800 gallons of gas. for what that's worth.

My daughter gives you a thumbs up! She thinks that's the car for her. I think she should be getting a job....

Mom said...

Somehow a Blazing Fit seems appropriate.

I did the numbers comparing a corolla to a prius. Assuming the Prius would save us 40% on our gas (a very, very optimistic estimate) it would take us 12 years to recoup the $10,000 additional cost of the vehicle.
Of course the corolla doesn’t come with the status you get with a prius, but since I can’t figure out how to parley status to college savings or retirement funds, I’m not interested.
In other words, good on you for making a well reasoned purchase.
