A New Car

The Car

Many years ago I decided that I would keep each of my cars for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever came first.  I’m now at 9 years, 96,000 miles and looking at 2011 hybrids.  If I get the refi and the new health insurance, I can afford a new car.

The Toyota Prius can offer consumers a 50 MPG rating in combined fuel economy.  The 2011 Toyota Prius is the best car for you if you want the most fuel-efficient hybrid on the road.

We’ve been hearing the rumors for over a year, and it’s now looking increasingly likely that Toyota is getting ready to launch a new hybrid minivan that will wear the Prius nameplate. If true, this would be the first completely new vehicle added to the Prius stable, where it would join the well-known hatchback sometime in 2011.

The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid achieves more than 1,400 miles of travel on a single tank. This marks the equivalent of 80 miles per gallon. But another site gave the stats as MPG: 41 City / 36 Hwy. ??

GM claims that the Chevrolet Volt can drive up to 100 MPG on a single tank of gas.  GM’s estimated city fuel economies for the Volt are an overall 85 mpg.

We’ll see.
