      Six months in, we're still really happy with it. It's cheap to run ($19 to fill up = 300+ miles) and easy to live with. It gets about 40 MPG slogging around the city.

      It never feels sluggish in...

      Toyota (new Yaris will be on this platform) can, though. They never sold a lot of Yarises because they ended up being close to the price of a Corolla since they were made in Japan (and now France)....

      The Accord guy is not even driving that quickly is what's surprising me -- he's just smoothly coming off the line and putting a ton of distance on the people in the left lane. If you tried that move...

      There's other stuff aside from salary, too. I make a decent wage, but probably more than many people, I care about having a relatively low-stress job with lots of benefits (free insurance, killer...

      It'd be interesting to see what they could do with a relatively low power but torquey engine, like their old 300 cu. in. straight 6 or the econo BMW eta engine from the '80s. Lots of people loved...

      New-looking OEM airbox (taken off and replaced with an intake when car was new) while the rest of the engine bay looks dusty like it has 50,000+ miles or whatever the case may be.

      I get asked fairly often -- I don't just recommend cars I like; I kind of factor in the whole situation, like how religious the owner will be with maintenance, their tolerance for minor gremlins,...
