  1. I've almost always felt this way: Don't buy a hybrid because in the long run they are more expensive. Heck, if you want to be an 'environmentalist' then these things are bad that way too: Expensive, and costly to make batteries and other components that are special to only the hybrids. Here's the way I feel about all this: I am an environmentalist! A true one! I believe in burning the whole tree! Don't waste any of it (Look up Ben Franklin!)........ LOL But, seriously; the whackos are trying to save the environment by crushing all 'clunkers' on the road. They don't figure in how much energy is wasted in throwing away all of the vehicles that are perfectly fine for a lot of jobs still and having to manufacture new ones from scratch. A lot of materials and energy go into making a rig! Another pet peeve of mine would to not have special, proprietary parts that only fit one vehicle for only 6 months before redesigning them. All the manufactures are bad about that. It would be so much cheaper on all of us (Not to mention better for the environment!) if there were a lot more common parts between the rigs we drive daily!! Well, anyway; the reason for this post is to talk you out of a hybrid. There are a lot of vehicles out there (Not just Geo Metro's) that can get pretty good mileage. When you compare them to the hybrids, there just isn't enough savings to justify buying a hybrid over conventional technology!! Besides: Look at all the diesel powered rigs in this line up!! http://www.mpgomatic.com/25-fuel-efficient-cars-that-are-not-hybrids/?var=5&utm_source=taboola&utm_medium=mashable
