    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Never heard of them, either, but obviously they exist:

    I like how much room the car has and that it is a hybrid. I was able to bring it home over night as a test drive and show the wife. I am scared of the warranty. 37000 miles on the car and 50000 mile warranty. Extended ones do not cover the battery which is a lot. It is fun to drive but I think I will pass.

    Hybrid FTL.

    Get a Honda Fit. Toms of room and very good mileage. Or, if you like Nissan, the Versa is a good choice.

    If you're stuck on a hybrid, look at the new Ford Fusion hybrid. (I can't believe I'm endorsing a domestic car...)

    If you are looking for a great hybrid try the Honda Civic. I bought a new one in 2006 and have over 112,000 miles on it already. It runs like it is new and get complimented on the ride all the time. Plus it has plenty of power. I was just zipping to work today at 88 mph passing cars left and right. I asked the dealer about the battery and they said they have only replaced one battery in all the years Honda has sold hybrids. BTW, every Honda is a recommended best buy in the Consumer Reports automobile issue. For comparison, about 1/2 of all Toyota models are recommended buys.

    The new Insight isn't. CR didn't like it much. Which is surprising. Honda is normally a default when seeking quality and reliability.

    However, I've also learned over the years that Consumer Reports opinions have about as much value as a moldy kumquat.

    The Consumer Report I read was 2008.

    If someone is explicitly looking for a hybrid, you can't go wrong with the Fusion, Prius, or Insight.

    However, consider your vehicle needs over the dual subsystem first, if possible. If you need basic transportation, people have great reviews on the Fit or Civic.
