The Perfect Commuter

In the midst of a down economy and high gas prices, consumers are in search of the “perfect commuter car”. Manufacturers are listening and responding to these needs by producing smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles.

According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), the average commuting driver spends 41 minutes (or 22.5 miles) daily on the road.

So, it’s safe to say – consumers are in need of a fuel-efficient vehicle that also provides safety, comfort, affordability and practicality features.

For those is search of these features as well as a fun, recreational vehicle, the AAA has done their part to research the “perfect” vehicles, which include:

  • Mini Cooper
  • Chevrolet Corvette
  • Buick Enclave
  • Mercedes-Benz GL
  • Volkswagen GTI
  • BMW 3-Series

Wouldn’t you prefer to drive a Corvette sportscar that would still get you good fuel economy (26 mpg on highway)?  We would.

    I used to average 29.5mpg on my 6 speed 2000 covertable on a 40 mile, mixed city and highway, commute. The milage, rock solid reliability, no mechanical issues, and almost 15,000 miles between oil changes make it a great commuter car.
