quote: Fuel is far more volatile in price than most other commodities. Are you really that naive to believe otherwise?
quote: As soon as you drive it off the lot and use less fuel, the savings come into play.
quote: Prius starts at $23,640 with lower standard content. You seriously need to check your facts before posting.
quote: Maybe by your twisted view of the world, where facts have no meaning.
quote: The Volt doesn't run on unicorn farts and air. Do you even pay your power bill or do your parents? Electricity rates are absolutely SOARING while gas is actually on a downward trend. My electricity company has gone up 23% this year alone, and they service millions of people.
quote: Again, there is no savings. You've switched from buying gas to buying electricity AND gas.
quote: I see your subtracting the $7,000 from the cost of a Volt. Vehicle cost is vehicle cost, just because the Government is helping foot the bill doesn't mean that price is magically less. And again, even with the subsidy you're looking at a $40k car!
quote: Excuse me but Car&Driver says about the Volt: "Expensive, heavy, not-great economy when running on gas" So I guess they have a twisted view of the world too?
quote: Come back when you're ready to be realistic. I understand you're in favor of the vehicle, but simply trying to bulldoze away all criticism isn't going to make the "facts" work for you.
quote: Electricity is nowhere near this volatile.
quote: Prius: $23,640 (www.toyota.com) Volt: $39,145 (www.chevy.com) BEFORE tax credit.
quote: You were blatantly wrong on every point
quote: Good job cherry-picking their quotes out of context.
