So I am racking up the miles on the Prius. Over 93k so far with no issues. Just change the oil and buy new tires every once in awhile. I plan to replace the Prius in 2009-2010 with the most interesting car that Toyota or honda can come up with. Hopefully something that will run on biodiesel. I expect to have 180k on the Prius by then. I wonder what the trade-in value will be?
I read that Honda plans on releasing their new hybrid in 2009 to replace the discontinued Insight. Supposed to be small, and still a four door. Should be exciting

Oh, and it's supposed to be cheap too.

Glad to have you back, albeit for an instant

I heard that the new Honda hybrid would be the Fit with the old insight drivetrain. That would be interesting but it doesn't represent an advance in technology IMO. The next gen Prius won't be available until 2009 or 2010. The details are sketchy, nothing firm to look forward to. I still have no details about diesels. An aerodynamic non-hybrid diesel would be fine with me.

I actually read somewhere that this Fit/Insight hybrid hybrid (hehe) is just a rumor. Supposedly it's going to be an all new design.

Yeah, I heard the fit rumor was nothing more, and the new hybrid will be all new. This is what the annual environmental report says, at least.
