Two years ago, after selling the MR-2, we needed work transportation, and this is what we found.  For $1700, we bought this little Honda CR-X HF, and it's near-40mpg.  It had no real problems, and everything was in pristine condition.  It made for a sporty little ride to and from work, and it was hard to let it go.  We sold it this year for the same $1700.
