Thanks for such a very straightforward write-up. It sounds like you might be done with leasing. Have you given any though to what would be your next vehicle?

Yikes is right! At $1K, it sounds like you need more drivers in your state. I pay around $250 for each of the vehicles in my household...x3, that still equals less than what you pay for your one. ...
