    aura hybrid is good deal?

    28 mpg is not bad for a 4 cyl family sedan. the 4 cyl camry or accords are 21mpg in city driving (new epa numbers). That means the aura is a 33% increase in fuel economy over its popular rivals.
    price 22,600-1300 tax credit=$21,300 not expensive for a nice family car.

    it is not going to change the world, but it is definitely a good step forward.
    if every vehicle class improved 25-33% it would go a long way to solving our energy problems.

    I am still trying to decide. Its a domestic car that is a hybrid but at the same time, it can't compete with the Prius on its performance. If they can get it to sip less I might get one. I love the styling with saturns but, only if it was "greener." We have the scientists and R&D to keep up with the japanese auto makers but why doesn't detroit try to keep up?

    Detroit Keep Up???

    Psion 128, If your "Detroit keep up" question was a serious question, I would recommend going to your local video store and watch "Who killed the electric car?". I do not agree with all aspects of the film, but it does make very clear that GM can throw out the baby and try to market the bathwater.

    where do I have this whole

    where do I have this whole thing wrong?
    since when is 21 mpg considered a saving, or even hybrid?

    I drive a non-hybrid sedan, 4 door. it is a Corolla.
    I know it's not as large as a Camry, but still.

    I can get 38 mpg, and sometimes over 40 if I drive proactively.

    It is a stick shift.
