Passed the CA bar on the first attempt. Yes it's a shameless plug, but damnit I'm proud of myself. Yay me, right? Well, as it turns out, I may need to commute over an hour a day (two hours for both trips), and my 18 mpg highway truck might not be so great on the wallet. So, the question is whether it makes financial sense to trade the truck in for something better on gas, buy a beater with good mpg, or suck it up and drive. Common wisdom indicates I shouldn't trade if I'm going to take a loss, but I'm also open to changing up the primary vehicle if I'm so intrigued.
Of note- I really, really like the new Fusions.
Also of note-- my commute is not twisty roads. Its a long, straight, So Cal desert highway.
So what say you TCL? Any good suggestions?
