We have two priuses,? one 05 and one 07.? While it is true the electic car is coming -- it will take some time and be expensive.? Why not get a hybrid now?? Even in 5 years if you decide to sell it?-- people will gobble it up.? We view them as an investment because of this.? But since? we usually don't purchase a new car until we have 240,000 on? the old one, we'll probably?croak first.

If possible, I'd wait until the next generation of plug-in hybrids come on line, possibly this Spring. ?The Japanese car makers have them already, and the Americans are working on them pretty hard. ?They will be the bridge car to all electrics or alternate fuel types. ?They might let the diesels from Europe in next year that are also high mileage cars.

My 2000 Saturn is still running with over 100,000 miles.? The new auto prices are so good.? Do I with good conscience buy a new car, or do I continue to drive my Saturn until it dies?
