My gas saver choice

I just bought my Versa. I have been thinking about getting a gas saving car for long long time. There is nothing wrong with my other ride Honda Pilot, which I have 130K miles on it and I have not even replace a light bulb on that thing. It gives me no surprise and average 20mpg. Like most Americans, I drive mostly alone, together with 7000lbs of metal. That doesn't make sense.
As my mom is planning to move in with me after my dad pass away, not the other way around. I need to get a second car. That's why I choose Versa and she can drive my Pilot to pick up my daughters after school, I figure maybe 2~3 miles a day. And I get to driver a new gas saver for 20 miles commute every day.

Welcome! Congrats on the 2012 Versa. Sorry to hear about your Dad. Hope it goes well with Mum. My mother-in-law lives in our Granny apartment, she's awesome!
I'm curious to hear if you cross-shopped the Honda Fit, or anything else. Welcome!

yes, I thought about Honda Fit and Civic. Then at end, Versa has a price advantage over those two and they are at near end of their product cycle ....
I had two Nissan before, one was 90 Sentra and then a 93 300zx bought used at 96. The 90 Sentra was very reliable, too. Z had lots DIY mods ...

Welcome. Enjoy your car. I'm betting you get around 35 mpg on your 20 mile commute.


205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank

Oh, Btw, I got average 40+mpg on my routes, which is about 80% highway, and I drive 65.
This is a car runs farier on a single gallon of gas than I do. Well, maybe not. I am thinking about running a 50 miler soon.
