.....I just don't want to put so many miles on my new car. So I'm looking for a car I can drive and get good gas mileage.....
i think alot of people feel this way about their new cars, but whether you drive your car or not, its going to depreciate. consider the cost of just driving the car you already have, vs. buying another car, insuring 2 cars, and still suffering depreciation of the newer car... it would make more sense if your new vehicle was more of a guzzler, but its a yaris.
how much could you save, or would you even save? wouldn't you rather drive your new car anyway?
The best car to modify is one that runs good and is paid for. Any car can be helped, and probably the best way is first to modify one's own driving habits and do a tune-up. Took my Eldorado from about 18-19 mpg to 25-26 mpg. The same has taken my Geo from about 33mpg to 40mpg.
I'd be interested to see some mods to good ol' Detroit iron. 25-30 mpg out of a '69 GTO Judge anyone? And have it still be fast when one wants it to be? (Ducking objects being thrown by the Pontiac faithful!)
Haha Funny. I was Just talking to one of my cousins in to turning my 1966 Dodge Monaco Station wagon in to a 35 MPG Bio-Fuel monster..
