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.
