i'm just curious does every person in the world that drives have 8 kids to haul around?

i've always hated big cars and trucks. they are hard to park and fit into tight parking lots and they are terrible on gas and they don't look as good either. everyone loves double cab trucks but i just think they look ugly. i have a reg cab toyota tacoma 4x4.

i could maybe see an extended cab but i really dont' even like those either. it just makes the wheelbase longer. shorter wheelbase is where it's at. you can fit into smaller places and make tighter turns which is great. you also get better mpg.

anyways the fit has alot of power for it's size and still gets 35mpg or better. best thing about it is you need new tires it will probably cost $300 since they are so small. the maintenance side of things you will hardly have to spend any money on that car.

i get new tires for my truck and it's like $700. it's crazy. you used to could get 4 tires for a truck around $400. tires have doubled in price in the last 10 years. it's nuts.
I had a 2008 Honda Fit. Folks can say what they want about them but when you add a Super Charger to them they become real stupid real fast! The 08 Honda Civic SI I had was the same way. My family owns Grissom Honda in East Gadsden. Needless to say I went through Hondas.
