Honestly, I love my HX. It has been nothing but great on FE and a blast to try and improve my FE with new driving techniques and testing mods. As a sole commuter vehicle it has proven to be even better than I expected. I was expecting mid 30's, but have been seeing high 30's to low 40's on nearly every tank!

With that said I'm realizing that I really need a 4 door car with good FE. My current vehicle line up, as you can see, has one 4 door vehicle. My Siberian Husky does not like the Trans Ams, she basically can't fit in them. She loves the Jeep, but at 13.5 MPG on a good day (Required to run 91+ octane btw) it's difficult to justify the driving expenses of any road trips, even fairly local ones.

She is VERY active, as you can guess:

It'll be sad when the HX is gone as it really has been fun, but the 4 door Jetta TDI I'm purchasing will better suite my current needs.
