...Although Toyota has cut financing rates and offered other deals in the past, zero-percent financing on such a wide scale is an unprecedented move for an automaker that has prided itself on its restraint with incentives. Its U.S. counterparts, meanwhile, have aggressively used cut-rate financing and big cash-back offers as a way to bolster sales in the flagging auto market...

Side note: I don't have natural gas available where I live but if I did I would seriously consider buying the new Honda Civic GX NGV with a home refueling unit.

240 mile range. Fuel cost about 1/2 of gasoline. Extremely low pollution. Overnight refueling with home Phil unit.

Go T. Bone!

The Civic Hybrid doesn't do too bad.

David

Power at the PumpThe benefits of the refined gasoline-electric powertrain on the Civic Hybrid are never more evident than when you watch those little numbers adding up at the pump. And with an EPA-estimated city/highway rating of 40 city/45 hwy mpg,* you’ll spend a lot less time there at the gas station.

It's so funny: My 1990 Honda Civic gave 37 city/40 highway. We had to get rid of it at 230K since we wanted a "safer" car for our baby, and rust had really eaten through our car quite a bit (the salt back east really kills the car). You could get one of those. I still see plenty of them around, especially in Southern California.

My 1987 Honda Civic is doing just fine, thank you. It will roll over to 200,000 within a month or two. No rust that I know of. Salt is not so bad in Virginia.

I'm looking ahead.

Oops, I meant 1997 Civic.

I get about 35-36 highway. I think the 1997 model is bigger and heavier than the 1987-1990 models so a little less mileage.

BTW, I'm concerned about the batteries on the hybrids. Would they last 11 years? If not, replacing them is a serious bump to the per mile expense. Say $3000 over 150,000 miles. That would be 2 cents per mile.

My primary ride is a 98 Civic: 40+ mpg, and it only has 80,000 on it because I don't waste gas on a lot of unnessesasary trips.

In the present context, the "revolution" is the full realization of all the general rants.
