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.
