Everyone knows I like to be environmentally conscious and give the oil industry as little money as possible. (I’ve blogged about my keen interest in the Nissan Leaf. I suspect that, as soon as I can test drive a Leaf, the Prius (Watts) will be replaced with one. In the meantime… )
Since resale values for Japanese autos are at perhaps an all-time high because of the economy and production issues for new cars, Rojo* could be traded for almost what was paid for it. I’ve never seen anything like it! (The gap will probably never be that small again.)
I wanted to replace Rojo with a four wheel drive hybrid. And, since I have now lamented the loss of heated seats for the past 2+ years, a new RX 450h would have to have them! (Probably since it never freezes, no one ever believes me when I say that the Pacific coast gets really cold!)
Meet, the fully equipped, Monica!
* Rojo was so-named because he was vivid, bright red. Monica (properly pronounced Moh-nee’- kuh) was so-named because she was purchased in Santa Monica.
