Yes, This Means I'm Better Than You So after over two years of bitching about my dear ol' Saturn SC2, Azlea, I finally did something about it, and this weekend, purchased a new car. I officially entered the Green Era, and am now the proud owner (okay, okay, leaser) of a 2009 Civic Hybrid. Night Nurse and I have been looking to upgrade to a 4-door for about a month, and after some test driving, it came down to the ride I got and the CR-V. However, after deliberating and realizing this car was basically gonna be needed for commuting, I couldn't get the crossover... but that doesn't mean Night Nurse won't cave sometime down the line!
After test driving the Toyota Camry Hybrid (I didn't test-drive the Prius because it was the most uncomfortable car I'd ever been in), I was amazed at how quiet hybrids can be, which became a huge selling point for me. The first time I stopped at a light, I thought I stalled the car because the engine "auto-stops", and unless you have the A/C or radio going, you can't hear anything. It was awesome.
MPG is 40/45, which should make hitting the gas station less of a pain in the ass. So far, I haven't named the car yet, which I think is a guy thing... do girls do that? I don't know, I like naming things.
Anyway, I'm quite happy with my purchase. It doesn't have the power I thought I wanted, but the green impact and the future gas savings definitely help. Plus, the car looks awesome, and is comfortable as hell.

I don't name my car. Then again, I don't even own my car, Wachovia still does. You know what a good name would be for you car? Zombiestomper. That would be cool.
Hmmm. . . Zombiestomper. I like it. Of course you're mileage may drop a little bit once you weld on the armor plating and the snow plow onto the front, but the added safety is well worth it. Does it have a sunroof so you open it up and chainsaw any zombies that are clinging to it, or would that leave you too vulnerable? I think I would just leave some slits in the sides so you can stick the chainsaw blade through.
Sho nuff is a purty high bird = Very happy for you, what color is it? And as to the Prius - we rented one when we went to the Dead/Obama Rally at Penn State and we both totally fell in love with it - everything about it - but had the same problem knowing if it was on or not.
I always caled my car the dity vixen because my original Cali plate had VXN in it. And I didn't wash it much.
oooh, new car!! Congrats!! I'm just getting a new license plate, because I think Chris is getting really sick of driving around "IceQn62"
Okay, so you got a new hybrid, which apparently means you are better than us, but when did that mean you need to start driving 54 in the slow lane?!?!?! Just 'cause you got a four door car does not mean you have to start driving like an old person. At least drive the speed limit...65 :) And it is okay to pass someone on occasion.
Holz, you are going to have to drive Zombiestomper faster if you expect to plow through the teeming hordes of the undead.
Hey Kristine...54 in the slow lane is acceptable! That's why it's the sloooow lane! Plus he is getting "old"...pushin' 30 you know! Oh wait a minute...if he's pushing 30 that makes me...nevermind!
1) I'm guessing that's Manchild, which, hey, good to hear from ya'!
Hey, yeah, tis me again.
