When it came time to buy a new car (a new used car, in this family), I had very few stipulations: good fuel economy and enough clearance to get up our long mountain driveway. I didn’t care about the color, and the fewer bells and whistles the better. Many people in this environmentally minded community have Priuses, but they complain about our driveway and the need to creep along or scrape bottom when negotiating the half-mile to our house.
