    Do you really, I mean really think you're making a difference for the environment? Even though China and India (over two Billion people) have been going through our natural resources like water in the last ten years and pissing it away with extremely little regard on the their impact?

    Because it's a stupid post. The few people I know who have hybrids is to save themselves money at the pump, not some grandiose shout out for the environment.

    Do they really save money though... ?

    Im being truthful when I say this Maggie, every one of the folks I knew who owned one...(and I know several folks who did) sold em because they didnt "truly" save any money after all was said and done.
    They were pieces of junk that were more trouble than they were worth.

    for me, it's always been about saving money and always will be. i can't justify spending 25k on a depreciating asset to begin with.
