    Fuel Efficient?

    Advertisements
    Would you buy a fuel efficient car? Why or Why not?

    Just trying to see both sides of it.

    Yes. My proudest moment was when I coaxed 54 mpg out of my 1996 plymouth breeze (no clue how I managed that by the way). I would love not to cry every time I go to the gas station, when I got my license in 1998 gas was less than $1 a gallon, now it's close to $4. I don't know if I would buy a hybrid but I definitely try to buy something that offers better mileage.

    I'm kind of wondering this too, unless the OP is talking about a hybrid or something.

    My next car is definitely going to be a fuel efficient car. I don't care about performance or big engines or anything like that so I don't really see a downside.

    Hell yeah. I don't want to pump my paycheck into my gas tank if I don't have to.

    I don't like the hybrids but I do want the newer Ford Expedition.
    14 city/20 highway.
    I know that does not seem like a lot to some of y'all but it is a heck of a lot better than the 98 expedition we have now!

    Eventually I want the F150
    17 city/ 23 highway
    Rissa*Rawr is my Wifey as of 1/24/2012

    We own one and it sure saves us a bunch. Hybrid cars on the other hand, too much maintenance from what I've heard. Don't really care for those.
