newwwww

Hey guys I'm new here but not to the excitement that is high mpgs.

I've owned a VX now for about 2.5 years and have loved every second of it.

I read through a bunch of threads after purchase and finally decided to sign up for the forum because I'm searching for a right side mirror delete!

Welcome to the site, and the VX clan.

I've said it before, but that won't stop me: if the VX wasn't already a distant, rusted-out memory here in eastern Ontario when I decided to pursue efficient vehicle ownership, I would have searched one out instead of going the Geo Metro/Pontiac Firefly route.

The VX suits my typical driving much better -- almost all secondary highway cruising, where the lean burn magic happens.
