Rob and I bought a new car last weekend! A black 2014 Subaru Impreza with manual transmission that we've named "Simone." It's not that much bigger than our beloved 2007 Honda Fit, but the 4WD transmission and heated seats are awesome.
Honda Fit. If you know anyone in the Bay Area looking for a manual-transmission hatchback in great condition, send them my way! The Fit is an amazing car and perfect for all kinds of fun adventures.
