dittos to davidricardo86. Most all of us have spent time at that end of the pay scale, but with continued wise economic choices like an undervalued i-MiEV, I'm sure you'll be climbing that economic ladder quickly! I hope that more folks of limited means will see the sense of an i-MiEV. There are efforts underway around the Puget Sound to ensure EV charging access at apartment complexes and in areas of on-street parking.
Automotive thrift was a good lesson from my old man. Back during Jr High when we had a Dodge and a Pontiac in a neighborhood full of Mercedes and Cadillac and some kids tried to rub that in on me, he showed me how our house was going up in value, while the fancy cars lost a lot more value than basic transportation did...
unFortunately, that logic doesn't seem to apply to TESLA... Were I not a stockholder, I'd love for those cars to be undervalued!!!!
