Hideously Unnatural
Well, I've done it. I bought a Bolt.

It replaces a 2006 TDI VW Jetta that we had for the kids.

I'm not really reciprocating anymore I guess, except in long trips in the Volt.

The wife's daily driver is still a dino-burner, but I expect once I get the second charger in the garage, she'll start to drive one of the electrics more regularly.

We'll be eager to hear your impressions of the experience, fit/finish, etc once you've lived with it for a while.

I wonder if Loudin can power an electric car with HAARP?

Jeffe, see if you can get a gigcarshare.com account -- cars just parked all over my area so you could visit and try to street race a Prius C!

Alas, it has been 20 years since I have been there.

We say Semi-trailer or truck. Lorry is a British thing.

Speaking with my Indian contractor that moved locally, he had not heard "Semi" before.

Johnny K, been meaning to ask how the reliability of your Focus has been.

Great. It's been in for a few recalls but nothing that I would have noticed. Only been in the body shop for a ding once or twice. First American car I've had. Granted, I drive maybe 7000 miles a year.

Cool, thanks! Sorry about the dings.

Don't buy Chrysler, that's all I'll say...

The new pacifica, which Chrysler was not held back by Daimler overlords, is VERY TOP NOTCH.

It seems like such a me thing that the Ford Fiesta EcoBoost i-3 with manual (well, only comes with manual) seems like the best fit for me and the best reviewed -- yet is nearly impossible to find. It's all window shopping for now, though.
