Which hybrid should I buy?
I'm definitely in the market for a new vehicle. I currently drive a 2004 Kia Rio, manual transmission. I considered a hybrid before purchasing the Kia, but the $14,000 I paid for the Kia vs. the $22,000 for a Prius was simply too much difference!
Again, I'm considering a hybrid. However, I'm also open to another gas only vehicle. I'd like some opinions on which hybrid to purchase. I'm single, but like a hatchback so I can haul hay bales when I need them. No trucks.
Leery of the Prius since their problems with the gas pedals. Like the looks of the Insight and its cheaper than the Prius.
Thanks for opinions.
Don't shy away from Prius
Don't shy away from Prius because the gas pedal. There's absolutely no problem there. Depends on how much you want to spend, but I would put the Prius, Insight, and maybe the Sonata Hybrid on your list for hybrids--and the Jetta TDI wagon for diesel, and the Ford Fiesta as a gas-powered car.
Thanks. I'll check out the
Thanks. I'll check out the Fiesta, having had Fords in the past and really liking them.
