    And bought a Prius.

    20160323_165254.jpg

    Was looking at newer Passat diesels since I commute so much and wanted something more comfortable. Plus, the Forester has 230k on it now and is really starting to show its age.
    So, while looking at the Passats I came across a good deal on a 2010 Prius. So I bought it, and so far so good.

    Black ext with gray cloth interior. It's not loaded but has push button start as well as auto lock/unlock without having to push buttons. So far I average about 46mpg which is about 20 more mpg than the Subaru. Would be better but lots of interstate and hills in tn.

    $8500 after taxes, tags, title, etc. cheapest I found in the area for the new body style. and about $3k less than the cheapest Passats I could find.

    Now gotta sell the Forester, going to miss that thing but I just dont have or want to sink the money into getting it proper again.
