My husband drives a Fiat. The man is all about gas mileage. Small wonder as he commutes 35 miles each way to work. That comes out to 350 miles per week! He used to drive a Geo Metro. It got about 40 mpg. He loved that car and wouldn't give it up despite pleas from the whole family. He drove it for some 250,000 miles until the frame cracked and he had no choice but to replace it. Still, he knew the Metro's days were numbered, so he'd been looking around. He'd had his eye on Fiat for a while. He was eager for the 500 to be sold in the U.S. Then came the Jennifer Lopez commercial. That put him off for a while. Plus our son kept telling him the Fiat is a "girl car." But eventually he came back around to Fiat. Good mileage, low price -- those are the siren songs for my husband when it comes to car buying. This week he finally got his little Fiat. He couldn't be more pleased.
