As the country coughs up the orange fur ball

Totally stole that line from Mike Murphy here!!

My car is home.  Driving it back from the Mercedes shop I was really surprised at how at home I felt in it.  I enjoy the smallness and am so used to driving it the whole experience is just part of me.  And it is back in its garage now.  I'm about $1500 poorer but I bought it in 2012, paid it off after a no interest loan four years later, and have only added oil, tires and bought a battery in all that time.  So my cost of ownership is miniscule compared to almost any other car I've had.  And I feel like it is just as much care as I need and no more.  I love the efficiency of size.
