When my commute was 100 - 150 miles a day, the TDI made sense. We had two of them. Now living in the city a Chevy Volt would make the most sense, but since I'm only driving 10,000 - 12,000 miles a year I opted to drive what I really enjoy and not worry about mileage. The miles I commute on a bike help offset the poor fuel mileage of the 4 wheel vehicles anyway.

Hey Bueller, what exactly is it that you drive that you really enjoy?
