    probably why they get relatively shitty mileage. You drive that SmartCar thing you better be getting 50+ minimum.

    I had a Suburu Sherpa when I was in Australia. Loved that little thing. No AC but most I ever drove was like 5 miles cause of where I lived. Got well over 50. 2 cylinder counter balanced 630cc engine. Seated 2 with a decent sized cargo area.

    not much of a looker, but better than a SmartThing. And remember this late 80s

    completely true.

    but for your basic 9-5 commuter zipping down the interstate at speeds approaching 30mph I would not let a small car be a huge issue. An issue yes but not huge.

    My wifes new Focus gets 35+ depending how deep she plants her foot - lol

    Guess a Focus is now considered a medium sized car. So why get a micro car that gets worse mileage and costs more just so you can look stupid in your SmartCar?

    they are trendy, personally, I'd rather have a bit of power incase you need it and the reassurance of not having to be worried about a soccer mom killing me.

    nope

    Alice Springs.

    But because the Queen of England controls like 99% of all the land it is a very concentrated city. No long drives are possible. Except just driving out of town for the heck of if

    Exception to the rule. Same with his boat.


    I just got an RX300. I never wanted an SUV, but after my last accident (first real accident since I was 16), smacking the divider on i-24, spinning across the 4-lane and into the guard on the other side.... somehow only got burned from the airbag... I think I'll stick to smaller SUVs from here on out.

    Thought for sure I was dead.
