Don't have to worry about my wife's SUV anymore, she hit a big doe last night and totaled it! She wasn't hurt....my wife, not the doe. Maybe I can talk her into that Civic Hybrid now....

The mileage was maybe 10mpg, but in the hilly Cincinnati snow and ice, nothing compared, also off road and hauling/towing. Now I drive a Yaris because I want mpg. I guess I am philosophically opposed to giant engines trying to get great mpg.

Well sort of a British V8.

Some of the 3.1's only got a 3-speed.

Keep in mind that some people DO actually use this truck for its intended purpose. Probably only 5% of the owners, but still, they are out there!

Personally, my feeling is the same, but I think the same thing for all the hybrids.

It's a transitional technology, period. Batteries are toxic and expensive. Since the US EPA is so crazy, diesel advances have been crushed in addition to groups continuing to work against them, even though that are excellent primary engines in the rest of the world.

As for intended uses of vehicles. Recognize that choice is a right.

Of course her argument might be, "If I had hit that thing in a CIVIC!!!!".....
