I cannot see, is it supposed to be an image?
charging package ! Also the e-fiat 500 though only available in Californation !
I can't match that with Any other car, so the question is how small can you go ! Big Al
I used to have an Elantra and got over 400k klicks on it. I loved it. Only repairs I had to do was regular maintenance and change the alternator. The new ones supposedly get 60 mpg.
Point is, you can find deals if you are willing to look. Much easier to do NOW that you don't NEED something. Craigslist can be your friend once you learn how to search for what you want.
Another idea that popped in my mind is a car sharing service. We are in the city now and could rent a car to go on longer haul trips. Anybody tried those car sharing things?
The sign of things to come ?

I know people who love, love, love doing this! They claim they save a lot of money and hassle. Though I heard that if you run the numbers, it turns out to actually be cheaper to rent a car through a regular car rental company than the zipcar or flexcar places. I have not run the numbers myself.
Having recently gone through the pain of making a decision like this myself, I feel for you Adrien! Good luck!
