Hate to be the skunk at this PC party, but our 2.5 year old Prius with 15K miles would not start. Had to have it towed. Needs new $2k-plus batteries. You can get about the same mpg with a gas-engine Corolla or Civic, without the mind-numbing complexity and unreliability of a hybrid.
But hey, if it's Politically Correct, it's Good -- right?
We're trading in this clunker. The rest of you can go ahead live in your little PC world of make-believe if you want.
