    Starting on the 29th, I'll be commuting back and forth about 80 every day to work. The wife and I are trading vehicles and I'm getting stuck with the Honda Accord LX POS which I almost wrecked today. I hate that friggin car. I need help.

    Considering how much gas is supposed to be here soon you're probably stuck unless you wanna take out a loan to fill up your tank... /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    I drive 115 miles around trip a day to work and I just could not deal with the $600+ a month gas bill so I ending up buying a Toyota Corolla (now my gas bill is about $250 a month). It really sucks having a car when your are use to a tall vehicle. My theory is to fall out of vehicles not in to them.

    i've been driving the wife's 92 accord for a while now on the commute. amazing how much faster i go.
    it's lowered with sticky tires, so i go way too fast in the twisty stuff, too.
    all in all, i think these fast little cars should be outlawed due to my inability to drive them at legal speeds. my blazer does just fine cruising at 70. oh wait, that's speeding also, isn't it?
    maybe a motorcycle instead. yeah, that'll slow me down.

    I drive our chevy prism everyday for the mileage, 40 miles one way. And the wife drives the pickup. But on the weekends we switch out so it's all good.
