10908Re: [hreg] money and mileage
- Oct 13, 2011Greetings,
For a car, I drive a Toyota corolla, it gets 45 on the highway. I need
the ability to tow a trailer of 3500 pounds. This will be a farm
vehicle, so hauling ability is a necessity, not optional.
When we bought the corolla in 2007, we looked at a Prius. However, the
highway mileage was the same. Since we are rural, 90% of our driving is
highway, so our considerations are a bit different.
I know it doesn't make any financial sense, but I think I will vote my
conscience with my dollars and buy the hybrid anyway.
