Pros: Great MPG
Cons: Don't be roadkill
Great on gas. Don't get run over by all the SUV's on the road. Recommended for short commutes, less than 5 miles. Good for runs to the grocery store too. Break even point with public transport I calculated at about 10,000 miles, that may take me about 5 years but it does eventually end up being cheaper than the bus. Liability insurance for me is less than $170 a year. If gas goes up to $12 a gallon I'll be laughing as I weave in between the abandoned GMC Yukons.
