It's almost time for me to get a new car, and at the rate gas prices are increasing, I'm seriously considering a hybrid. Any FB you have on it good or bad would help. Does anyone own one?
I get that a lot! Any time a guy finds out I drive a Prius, I get the major eye roll and an assortment of negative comments.Even though my boyfriend HATES them and think they're for wusses. Boys and their cars.
Ah, how does the Escape fare MPG and performance wise? Or what made him decide to get that one?Great post, Laura. I work for the state environmental agency here in Florida and most of our government cars are hybrids. I drive a 2005 Prius often and love it! It's a great car that gets very good MPG. We also have a couple of hybrid Ford Escapes. In fact, after reading about hybrids and their benefits to the environment, reducing our dependency on foreign oil and benefits to his wallet, BF is getting an Escape next year
Hmm...I'm 5'8" as well, and I don't have any problemsMy Dad had a Prius. He liked the car, but he hated the legroom. He is not particularly tall, maybe 5'8", but he couldn't tolerate it. He traded it in for a Camry after two years.
Her name is officially Belle, but somehow she's turned into "Bellita" over the years. She's 5 pounds of trouble^Your pup in your avatar is so cute! Whats his/her name??
**Back on topic--I love the idea of a hybrid, but I read a report (Consumer Reports, I believe) that was saying that unless you have conservative driving habits (ie accelerating slowly, etc) that the MPG is not as good as advertised??
