"Still, he says the Scion IQ feels tiny, especially the backseat. “I guess if you were driving with the Keebler elves you could put three of them in the back,” he jokes."

When I'm out driving around 90% of the cars I see driving around town have one person sitting in them. Great big giant SUV's and 4 wheel drive trucks with one person using them as transportation to go to Kroger's or the post office or running other errands. It's absolutely insane.

It's fine if you need a big SUV to haul your kids or haul cement or whatever but people like that need a second small car to run errands. It's about saving gas which is a limited commodity. Like my momma used to say "when it's gone, it's gone!"
