I rented a car today, had to meet a client too far out of metro range for my taste and some errands to run (is the Ikea parking ever not packed?), reserved a subcompact sunday, as usual they weren’t really checking or balancing stuff, just ballparking how many they’d have the next morning, then driving them in from other outlets, as needed. Anyway, because of that superb way of working, I got a gaz guzzling minivan instead of a subcompact. Fun to park too.
The minivan was an Uplander, funny thing is, I didn’t even have enough leg room! I’ve been in Civics and Minis, leg room excellent, I pushed back this huge thing’s driver’s side seat as far as it would go and it was still a bit too close. Nicely designed.
