Many of us have made sacrifices both for, and against, our hobby of Transformers. Me, I've had to sell some items so I could pay some medical bills. Now, I'm looking at trading in my gas thirsty Ridgeline for another vehicle. There are several reasons why I'm considering the trade, and the current gas costs is one of them. I don't like having to pay $60 or MORE to fill up my tank in my Ridgeline. I also haven't been too happy with it in the year of ownership. Mine has had some seat issues such as with poor fabric, and assorted rattles and other things here and there. I do like having a truck, but right now don't have a need for one. Plus, the truck market is starting to go downhill and I figure if I traded now I'd have MUCH better resale value. The two cars I'm looking at and considering the most are a Honda Civic EX Sedan with navigation, and a Scion xB with navigation too. The Scion is cheaper, when equipped with what I want, but the Civic is a pretty nice car too. Both vehicles, thankfully, are also aftermarket friendly. I do need a vehicle that can haul items when I need to, and haul ass when I have too. I did look at the Honda Fit/Jazz, but it crossed the line I have of being TOO small. It was a great car but I didn't like it. Does anyone else have any other recommendations? I generally like Hondas or Toyotas, and my last two vehicles have been a Toyota and a Honda respectively. Reliability is a BIG factor for me as is resale value. But, this go around I won't be trading as soon.
