Yeah, but in your case you are using the right tool for the job. I don't think anyone is going to give you a hard time about that.

Now, not everyone can afford 3 vehicles, but people tend to buy much larger vehicles than they really need, "just in case". Too many people fall victim to the though that "bigger is better".


Agreed. Makes a lot of good food for thought on how the insurance agency bills for insurance. Paying full charges on every vehicle is senseless in this situation and likely a HUGE contributor to emissions as I know a lot of people who think EVs are a good idea but balk at the thought of paying for an extra vehicle...

If available, PAYD insurance may save a bundle for a vehicle that's infrequently used. I'm saving over 50%/month compared to my old standard insurance policy, and it gives people a financial incentive to drive as little as possible, over and above gas savings. But yeah, nobody is going to complain about someone who uses a pickup to frequently haul stuff. If you live on a farm or ranch, they're pretty much essential vehicles, not fashion statements.

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.

May 2016 numbers are in and 979 Leafs were sold, down 53.5% of May 2015.

Not great for Nissan, but great if one is looking to buy.
