I'd be interested in what kinda of mileage she gets. I wonder if it's going to be off as much as the Prius if you just drive it like a normal ICE. Is she interested in driving techniques? Metro I know you'll love it if you ever get some time in it.
Nah, she's a point A to point B person. I don't think technique will be high on the priority list. Her husband on the other hand will enjoy playing with it. He's already admitted he spent far too much time looking at the various displays during the test drive
I certainly am curious to find out what it's capable of!
did you help convince them to fe or they are just like that? My dad thank me pretty often for talking him out of a new ford expedition to a new accord. the only sad thing is that he says "it gets good enough mileage" so he dosent have to try
Ewwww, I HATE BMW's. Actually there is one thing I can't stand more than BMW's and that's BMW owners! People make fun about the smugness of hybrid owners. At least in my area, 9 out of 10 BMW drivers are nasty booty holes. Type A personality x 5! weaving in and out of traffic, riding peoples butts, throwing cigarette butts out the window, talking on the cell phone and I could go on and on.
Sunday I saw a lady driving a 740 with a laptop weaving like crazy. Took her forever to pass me on the vacant 2 lane road as I was driving the truck with a trailer. Let her pass and she kept on checking her email etc. Nuts!
