Saw a really dumn report on CNN tonight from the New York car show. The reporter was going ga-ga about a monster car (485 HP Mustang or some such thing). When asked about the hybrid cars, all she could do was give reasons not to buy one. "Its uncertain what their resale value will be, repair costs and insurance rates sure to be much higher than for conventional cars." First two points are of no interest. 1) who would want to sell one once they FINALLY get one, 2) repair - Toyota's engineering + the warantee takes care of that, except for accidents, but 3) insurance rates are a concern. Does anyone have any specific points of comparison between a Prius and another car with the same sticker price, for the same driver?
