After owning Moose, my 2000 Land Rover Discovery II for nine years, in 2014 I decided to lease a more fuel efficient car named Rhino, a 2015 Honda Fit. Since I was a kid, I’ve always loved the sportiness and reliability of Hondas. My parents always drove very used Japanese cars.
Even when I owned an $80,000 Mercedes G500 as an idiot 25 year old back in 2002, my fondness for compact cars never waned. The older I got, the less I cared about driving a fancy car. All I wanted was to have a reliable car that required a minimum amount of maintenance so I could cherish my valuable time. I thought Rhino would be that perfect car, but he’s not turning out this way!
