Our new car:
Actually, we don’t own a car, but we do have this Zipcar parked conveniently about a block down the street. It’s great for those quick trips around town or when we can’t get somewhere by bus or bike.
This particular car is a Honda Civic Hybrid, but there are lots of other cars within walking/biking distance. There is even a minivan and an SUV relatively nearby if we ever have need. The prices are reasonable and the best part is that our car is always clean and ready to go.
We’re big fans of zipcar and have been using the service for a couple years (we started when it was still Flexcar). I don’t think we could avoid owning a car without it.
