I guess that's good for me, I'm looking at buying a Prius
My Tbird only gets 15 MPG...I wouldn't know what to do getting 50 MPG! I'll give American products a longer look when they start making sensible hybrid vehicles. Escape Hybrid? 26 MPG? Impressive for a 4x4...but who needs a 4x4 from April-November? Not me.
I interviewed for an engineering job at GM and the guy was telling me all about their hybrid H2 they were working on (that's the project job I was interviewing for) - that is just assinying. Yeah, let's make a vehicle that normally gets 10 MPG a hybrid so it'll get 15. Maybe that's the reason Toyota and Honda have been thriving - the fact they make extremely economical vehicles.
Ford and GM have been a huge disappointment since people started becoming very gas-conscious IMO. Granted, I love my Tbird, and will keep it as a second vehicle (cuz I've put so much damn money into it and it's in near perfect condition), but I need to look at something economical. I'm sorry Chevy, but the Aveo and Cavalier both suck. (The Cobalt is alright).
