There was some noise about hybrids not getting their epa mileage but i haven't heard it lately.

My wife and I have a very long commute and we are on track for putting 60,000 miles on our Prius this year.

Gasoline prices aside, has anyone factored in the other financial benefits of a hybrid such as no brake pads to replace. How about reliability comparisons? I fully expect to put 300K miles on our prius before we trade it in.

PS Our Prius is getting pretty darn close to 50mpg. It loves Synthetic oil and regular gas.
