    2006 Toyota Prius

    Best I have had - - since 1950!

    Pros: Hybrid Drive - - wish it was all-electric

    Cons: no dislikes

    A nice vehicle, larger inside than it looks. Controls are easy, once you learn to start & shift with the brake on. Recalls have been trivial.

    2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid

    Best car we've owned

    Pros: The Bose / Navigation or the fact the engine shuts waiting at the intersection is great.

    Cons: The front seats could be a little more comfortable on long trips and I top of the line hybrid costs the most, it should come with fog lamps.

    Over the years as a couple we have had many cars and trucks. It has been the most reliable, trouble free and doesn't need to go back to the dealer car we have experienced.

    2005 Toyota Prius

    Best Car I Ever Owned: Prius

    Pros: 52 MPG on the highway, fully loaded with people and cargo

    Cons: Glove compartment finish on 2005 model scratches easily

    As kids we thought of taking energy from braking with generators, be we couldn't control the process fast enough with mechanical switching. 30= years later fast microcomputers made it all controllable. Besides the excellent technology, the appointments, gadgets, and performance are great. Traction control on ice and hard pack snow is marvelous. This is bar-none the best vehicle I have ever owned in my 45 years of driving.

    2008 Mazda Tribute Hybrid

    Hybrid warranty and repair not available at Ford

    Pros: 32 mpg

    Cons: A/C demands a lot of gas to run

    I bought the hybrid Tribute in the Mazda limited production program in 2008 in CA. Now, Ford does not honor its commitment to Mazda for hybrid repairs, especially outside CA. I was stranded in Ft Lauderdale because no Ford dealer would use its budget to diagnose and repair the defective hybrid power train part. In fact, I was told repeatedly by Mazda and Ford that no such car existed. I bought with the assurance that Ford would provide the hybrid repairs nationally using the Ford Escape hybrid techs. This car is a lemon and never should have been sold. I do not trust Ford anymore and would never buy a hybrid from them.

    2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

    Efficient, comfortable and surprisingly fun

    Pros: Solid refinement.

    Cons: The hybrid's batteries eliminate the fold down rear seats.

    Having initially decided to purchase a BMW, we were intrigued by the press the Fusion Hybrid was receiving. We were pleasantly surprised with the drive, comfort and quality, and the promised efficiency and low emissions made us feel like it was the right thing to do. The technology and features were impressive, and fully loaded it saved us more than $10,000 over our chosen BMW. Figure in the fuel savings and the cost benefit multiplies. Our long term average is 34 mpg in LA driving, with our best tank at 39. We have not been disappointed. Supremely quiet and composed, very comfortable, with a stable and fun to toss platform, quality materials and an intuitive and comprehensive navigation and Sync system, it's a great place to spend time.
