Prius vs. Insight vs. ??? Or, can you help me pick a new car?
My car is dying. Don't feel bad for it: it's had a good life and is about to turn 13. But the cost of fixing everything that is broken is greater than the value of the car with everything repaired.
We have a bad smog problem, so I'd like for my new** car to be a hybrid (or an electric with gas backup). I prefer smaller cars (but not so small as a Think or a Mini) because they are easier to park and maneuver. I've looked at the Prius, Insight, Civic, and Camry. So far I seem to prefer the cars designed as hybrids over the hybridized traditional cars.
Anyway, the last time I asked the community for help, I got some great advice: got an Ooma, so far so good! So I'm going back to the well. Has anyone purchased a hybrid in the last couple of years? Which one did you pick, and why? Are you happy, or do you have regrets?
** I'm also considering "pre-owned" cars, but am only interested in current-gen models.
Trolls need not apply. You know who you are.
