And that's just the thing: you guys have always had piles of cheap, cheerful, efficient econoboxes to choose from. We used to, and then they sort of went away. Now, maybe they're coming back.

So I can understand why interest in this car might perplex someone who has a lot more to choose from in this category.

(Slight correction: we've always been able to buy cheap econoboxes, but the efficient ones went away. The ones that remained grew larger, heavier and thirstier every year.)
