Hybrids KICK GAS

ReviewMuch more fun than we ever imagined. Quick and fast. Cruises on highway at 70-90 with no problem other than having to occasionaly downshift. Concentrating on milage we get upper 60mpg's. Driving fast low 50's. In city, Washington DC, no option other than drive aggressively we get low 40's. Great city car because nimble and quick. When supersized, dark colored SUV's tend to get aggressive it's a simple matter to leave them in the rear view mirror with a smile. Many people think the car is all electric and most don't know it gets up to 70 mpg and can go 115 mph. Commercial media, the one source most Americans use for news, does a horrible job of informing the public.
Best FeaturesFilling up with gas at home and driving to work while averaging 73 mpg. Silently coasting through parking lots, by people and into a parking space with the engine (auto)off. Getting 125 mpg at 70 mph while drafting a safe 2 seconds behind a semi.
Worst FeaturesPassenger side blind spot! Better audio system. Narrow tires tend to track in road groves.
