I have decided to give my old car to C.O.O.L. (Christian Outreach of Lutherans), which is where I gave our last one (12 years ago).
In general, I like to buy American cars, but the only hybrid other than the Prius that I would consider is the Ford Fusion. The Ford costs about $5000 more and doesn't get as good mileage,
I refuse to consider buying a GM (Obama Motors) car. Other then the Chevy Volt burning down garages and houses (link, link2); we lost a lot of money when Obama gave the company to the Government and the Labor Unions (who were instrumental in causing the trouble) and I will not support any company that was bailed out.
Chrysler is owned by a foreign company and bailed out.
And Japan was ravaged by the weather and came back without any help from our government. So buying a Toyota helps those who help themselves.
