Clearly, many of us are willing to make sacrifices in the face of high gas prices and a flailing economy, but just how far are you and your family willing to go?
Here are 4 other cars that make up for their nerdy rep with kicking gas mileage:
1. Pinto - Yes, it's ugly and might blow up if you're rear-ended, but this baby is so horrid, it's chic.
2. Festiva - Lovingly called the "tuna can" in my family, this baby often topped out at 50 mpg highway miles.
3. Subaru Justy - Like justice, but cuter. The Subaru Justy could fit two beach blankets and a toddler and maybe an angry ex-, but not much more than that. But 3 cylinders will buy you a lot of trips to the local 7 Eleven, as long as you're not in a hurry.
