Not worth the premium

ReviewI bought my 2003 Honda Hybrid new.
All told I think it was $35k.
Paying a premium on the car because it was a hybrid, the tax deduction and the gas savings would make up for the extra cost; right?
Well, for the past year it has been sitting in our driveway with a busted transmission.
$4500 to replace it.
This is the latest in a long string of recalls/replacements on this car.
Luckily, our other fixes have been covered by Honda; but this fix is not.
We look at the blue book value of this car, and seriously question if it is worth fixing especially when we read other reviews of cars that have gone through multiple transmissions and other fixes.
For the price, I expected better.
Best FeaturesGood gas mileage
Worst FeaturesFree/discounted repairs on parts that are documented to break. Better quality transmission.
