Sadly, all good things must end. We've come a long way together. Will we continue?

I concur with Walksondirt... if your 09 Yaris is in good condition and meets your needs, it is by far the most environmentally friendly and economical choice when you figure in both the capital and operating expenses.

If your needs have changed or if you've driven the Yaris into the ground, you should consider a Prius V (!=Prius 5, poor naming) which, IMO, is a better car than the Prius.

Be cautious though, both the Prius and Prius V are very loud cars at highway speeds. You may want to take an extended test drive to see if you can tolerate it. My wife and I were going to buy a Prius V (we test drove it a lot, were happy with it except for the highway noise) but decided at the last minute that with our long trips we really couldn't stand it. (We went with a Camry, BTW).

How many miles do you have on that Yaris? It's hard to imagine you shouldn't just keep it.

This is your new prediction?


Q: What would happen if you give 12V battery and two 6V light bulbs to Weir/Nelson?

A: They will wait 8 years for 12V➜6V DC-DC converter.

I was in the neighbor hood of Nissan so I test drove the Leaf. That was the most fun I've had in a while. So quiet inside that cabin. The torque as expected was G force like. 100mpg now and when 200+ comes its a viable vehicle. Gas in my area went up 15 cents in the last month. Certainly still no comparison to Europe.

All they needed to produce is one layer/component and prove its viability. Millions would have flowed their way to manufacture the first "prototype" sandwich. At this point it still leaves me to think they never had even one component layer which could last to battery or better ED specs. That leaked audio still puzzles me.

Hi Shortee I dont think it is so much a lack of commitment as a lack of tax base, there are only ~33 million souls in this country...roughly the population of California and we are spread out over a vast area

The initial reference was to the US, not Canada.

And Canada, vast though it may be, has the same issues. The growth and 'sprawl' of the Greater Toronto Area is a prime example.

People complain that there isn't enough public transit, or not good enough public transit, but nobody wants to pay to actually fix public transit.
