Talking My first hybrid!

I just bought my first hybrid about two months ago. I knew little about the vehicle, but the guys at my local used car lot had SO much information. Randy Adams, Inc., in New Braunfels, TX is where I got the vehicle, if you're in the market for one.

I'm saving gas money AND the environment, and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a used car.


Thanks for all the great posts!

I am old guy that is willing to move into the future and avoid this huge oil dependency that the whole nation is stuck.
Thank goodness that a couple of auto companies had a vision a few years ago and brought into life the Hybrid which I feel is only in the infancy stage.
My wife and I are debating between the Toyota Prius or Highlander Hybrid.

With the prices of gas right now, maybe the Prius is a good idea... or possibly waiting for the next-gen stuff to come out like the Honda CRZ.

I'm shopping for a new Hybird at this moment. It appears there is quite a waiting list for hybrids in my area (Baltimore)

Question:
Is it a misconception that some 4 cylinder's will get better highway mileage than a Hybirds? (i.e because of the weight.)

I've read article that go both ways.

Just need to know before I buy.

Thx
Bill

It is not a matter of what you drive, it is more how you drive it. There was a recent test by Top Gear, season 11 that is about to start airing, that pitted a Prius against a BMW M3 with a 414 hp V8. They put it to 10 lap test around their track, and the Prius was driven as fast as it could be driven around the track, and the M3 just had to pace it. At the end of the test, the Prius got 17.2 mpg, and the M3 got 19.4 mpg.

It is a matter of how you drive the car. There was another test that C&D did, i think, and it showed that a Z06 vette got better mpgs during highway driving than a Prius.

Get a GM hybrid. A Tahoe or Malibu.
