And I'm not talking about knitting. Our old faithful 1999 Plymouth Neon Expresso that I so love to drive has decided that it needs more work than we're willing to put into it for a commuter car that gets 22-25 mpg. I love the way it handles, it's fun and cute (although as the hubby says "Instead of that happy look the Neon is famous for, it had a permanent frowny face.") So we are now looking into something I had never considered before (as I am more focused on fiber and paper than cars) - a VW TDi - yes, Diesel - Jetta or a Golf - depends upon what our guy has in stock and we like.
The one concern is whether to get an automatic or stick - I have never driven a stick, but after watching this I think I might be able to handle it. Hubby couldn't get through it, but I like the "open and close the door" concept of the clutch (oh, and not being a Bush fan it gave me a few giggles too).
We'll see what happens - and what we end up with.
