We own a 2001 and a 2004 Prius and a firm believers that it is important to make a statement with the car. We didn't buy either because we needed a new car or to save money, we bought them because they put out fewer emissions and use less of this earth's natural resources.

One way to promote environmentally responsible behavior is to make others aware that it doesn't always require a sacrifice. The Civic Hybrid was not available when we purchased the 2001 but I want to advertise how easy it is to be green.
