Sage Ellefsen had never been so excited to drive the 11 hours to Tacoma, Washington. In 11 hours she would finally have a car to drive and partly call her own. It was 11 hours to freedom. The car that would drive her to freedom is a yellow, spunky Fiat 500. Ellefsen got her car Labor Day weekend of this year and is considered a family car. She did not have a car her sophomore year, so getting a car before her junior year was a blessing. Ellefsen said her favorite feature about the car is that it’s small, yellow, and fast.

However, during the first snowfall she is a little worried about how her car will hold up. Her Fiat does not have four-wheel drive which can be risky when the first snow falls. Ellefsen says that she will be extremely careful when the season turns frosty.
