Re: Re: Hybrid Cars


    Thanks for sharing your exprience Jeff. Our transplus service has been using them, adding to their fleet. Naturally being used for public transportation they see a lot of use. I didn’t think they’d still be continuing to add new ones, planning to purchase even more if they weren’t satisfied with the preformance they were getting. I agree with you that when you’re in the vehicle you’re going to notice semi trucks rolling by for sure. But no worse nor more I don’t think than many other small cars I’ve ridden in. The thing that gets me about the hybrids -with all that heavy battery going on you’d think it would hunker down in high winds more? Also I’m wondering what do you do if you ever for any reason break down and have to get your vehicle off to the side of the road and out of traffic. Does the battery make it heavy to push? One more thing if you have time/care to comment – how long before the battery needs replacing and to the tune of what cost? Also for the gentleman who is considering purchase if you like I could get you the number/adress of our transplus company. Maybe you could call or write them to see if they’d be willing to discuss with you what kind of performance they’ve been getting out of the vehicles they have. What issues bugs might have come up. What their impression take on the Toyota hybrid is. I don’t know if they’d be willing but couldn’t hurt to ask. Just a thought, Rhonda
