So I’ve thought long and hard about this whole car issue, even though I haven’t been writing about it. The Honda Fit hatchback seems to be a good fit for my situation. It’s one of the cheapest cars to own over five years (all expenses included, like insurance).
As far as gas mileage, no matter how I slice it, a hybrid is too much. The Fit gets 35ish miles a gallon (my Subaru gets 25ish at best) and Consumer Reports and Car and Driver both agree that it’s a great deal with great features. I’m sold!
Thing is I can’t really afford a new one… and there are no used ones in Maine! What is a girl to do? I’ll have to consider this more carefully I guess.
