So I am thinking about getting a hybrid, I have read many articles for and against the savings. Most of these articles are from years past. I was hoping that I could get some updated info here if any of you have the newer models (2010 + ) . I have read that the toyota prius is the best one as far as MPG. As of right now my wife and I spent roughly $350 - $400 a month on gas. She cost the most because she drives back and forth to school which is about 30 miles one way, which is some highway, some city. So I am going to say she spends have the $ of the gas each month. She mainly drives a 1999 pontiac grand am. So in my mind, the $200 in gas she uses would pay for a car payment. I know there would be some gas bought. I just don't know the mainteance cost, etc of these cars. So looking for some updated info on these cars if any one has one.
