I plan on using mine on a 70 mile commute each way. That means about 40k miles a year. Roughly 60 miles is on cruise control at 75mph. I will need the AWD version so the cost may be quite a bit higher. We get quite a bit of snow. I currently have a Corolla with 150k miles now. It's a '12 model. It's a tough decision to splurge on the 3 when I know it will be driven so much. What are your thoughts?
