For sanity's sake, let me write about something good.
Last month I bought a 2005 Scion XA. There was really nothing wrong with my 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage but it was coming due for all its standard 60,000 mile maintenance and I though I would just spend the money elsewhere. Also, it was only getting 22-27 miles to the gallon and the Scion is averaging no less than 35 no matter how and where I drive it. I am able to get to Tucson and back and still not have to fill the tank for 2 more days. I like it.
