Well, I just had my '03 Honda crv detailed and since it only has 60k miles and is still like new im/out, I just cou;dn't justify spending $18,000 on a new (inferior quality) much smaller Honda fit, when I would only gain about 5 mpg improvement! Just doesn't make sense now. And it seems insane to spend the current RIP OFF going price of more than $30k out the door for a standard prius. Rediculous. I also only average about 12-15k total miles per year.

I could see if you were commuting a lot and putting on 30k or more a year, the you would definitely save a lot in gas cost, but is $30k worth the extra money you save in gas? I think we're going to see some MAJOR mpg improvements even in the pirus soon, and so the current models will become outdated soon. I'll just wait another year ot 2.
Happy Birthday Terry! Every year you get cooler, younger and unicyclier!
