I'm not a car guy. She's not a car guy either. But I want something less boring than a Civic with decent acceleration and she wants something with a hatchback that doesn't make her look like mom dropping off the kids at camp. She was briefly enamored with the new/old Fiat but the reviews aren't too great. It basically would be a running-errands-in-the-city car, although the city in question is L.A. so there are highways in the equation.
