    I drive a 2004 Lexus RX330, as it exceeds 24 mpg, and it is very dependable and comfortable for in city and long trips. I think Toyotas are still the most fuel efficient and most dependable cars for now.

    I drive a 2013 Jetta. For me the reason I chose that type of vehicle was because my brother works in a vw dealer and he got me a great deal. I’ve been driving it for a year now and sometimes I wish I had one of those hybrid cars so that I wouldn’t have to spend so much on gasoline.
