    Still driving a 2001 Jeep Cherokee that i bought new. The Elio would have been a free vehicle just with the difference in saved gas on my 78 mile daily commute. Don't have to worry about saving miles on the Jeep. It now has 266000k and drinks gas just fine. What I loose in fuel expenditure, I save in insurance and repairs. I will continue to drive it till it drops, but would love to still get in on an Elio, but look at the project as a dead horse that needs to go to the glue factiory.

    Same here. Lots has happened since I went all in. I was hoping that my Kia Sorento would last longer when I got my Elio and would be driving the Elio much less. But I got tired of putting money into the Kia and bought a Ford Explorer a couple years ago. Totaled it about a moth ago and bought another Explorer.

    76 week production schedule means that getting a car in 2020 is officially dead.

    Traded my motorcycle in on a Kia Soul . Like the seat height, gas milage and reliability reports. Have just about used all the life of my Wife’s car. Still hoping for the Elio. Maybe my grandson will be driving by then.
