Does anyone own one or is anyone considering owning one?

I'm not really a big fan of the looks of any of the current hybrids on the market (Prius & Insight are the only two that come to mind), but Ford is planning on making a Ranger and an Escape hybrid within the next year or two. And a Civic hybrid is supposedly on the way.

With gas prices going higher and higher and tensions being as they are in the middle east, it seems like the next year could be a big year for hybrids. The carmakers just need to make them look more like real cars and not like, well the Insight.

I drive a Civic right now and wouldn't mind getting 40 or 50 miles to the gallon as opposed to the 25 to 27 I get right now. I couldn't imagine driving something that gets 12 to 15mpg, the cost must be exorbitant.

Doesn't Volkswagen also have a Jetta or Golf that's a Hybrid?

I'm kind of curious as to what kind of acceleration, power, reliability these vehicles have.
