we have two cars
a 2002 Subaru Outback Sport that get 20-25 MPG with 108k miles
and a 2011 Honda CR-Z that get 35-45 MPG with 40k miles
we plan to drive both cars into the ground
we are looking at a new job with a 40mile commute each way and are wondering if it makes more sense financially to drive the newer car with the better gas mileage for savings at the pump vs the wear it would put on the car or drive the older car where the wear is not an issue but the pump would definitely be more expensive.
it seems pretty straightforward but complicated by the likelihood of my own greed. The newer car is mine and the commute is my spouse’s. Maybe I should just get over myself?
