    2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

    Oval On Wheels

    Pros: The Build. Infact, all of its features.

    Cons: The Stereo

    This phenomenon is a post-earth innovation. Its concept is simply inexplicable. Priced elegance of repute is understating its description, but nothing fascinates the buyer like Mercedes Benz CLS Class S 550 Sedan.

    2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid

    Loving it at 5,000 miles and 4 months

    Pros: Hybrid drive train

    Cons: Wish it had adaptive cruise control and ability to save iPod music to the onboard 'jukebox'

    Fifth and best car I've owned in my life (26 years driving). I'm taken by how 'normal' it handles and feels. Got all the Mercury bells-and-whistles and despite my nervousness with being surrounded by all the electronics of the hybrid and Sync systems, everything works flawlessly. I consistenly get 37-41 MPG on each tank with a mixture of city and freeway driving in the congested San Francisco Bay Area.

    2009 Toyota Prius

    Dangerous on highway

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: The car (performance, comfort, material quality)

    My Prius returns very good gas mileage but at a price. It is too slow to safely merge with freeway traffic. I can't pass anyone and I feel any accident may be my last (at speed). I will not buy another. The brakes are only fair and the car does not inspire confidence in spirited driving. Lastly, for what I paid I would expect a higher quality of materials in the interior.

    2005 Toyota Prius

    Pros: ECONOMY

    Cons: REAR VISION

    The Prius has been a joy to own and drive. It is more than adequate for high-speed merging and handles well at all speeds. Our mileage for the entire time we have owned it has been over 40 MPG. The space available for luggage is large enough to take golf clubs and go away for 6 weeks. Love the 'hidden space' in back.

    2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

    2010 Fusion Hybrid

    Pros: high mpg

    Cons: lack of power (I'm used to V-8)

    One of my only complaints is the cloth interior on the Hybrid. It is supposed to be recycled Denim material, but it seems very delicate, not like denim. I have to small tears or cuts after only a few thousand miles. I have a (7) year old truck, that the interior still looks like new, so I'm not hard on an interior.
