Why I Don't Buy A Hybrid
The only brand-new car I ever bought was a 1993 bare-bones Saturn sedan. Because I was earning $7.50 an hour at the time, and Saturn makes its cars à la carte, I opted for no options whatsoever. I even skipped out on the passenger side-view mirror.
The car pretty much stunk. Saturn had only been making cars for a couple of years, so a few kinks needed to be worked out. When it rained, for example, it was impossible to open either front door without getting soaked from the water rolling off the windshield and in through the door. And the trunk opening was too small to accommodate a normal-sized cooler or a cardboard box. Or a baby stroller.
My cars grew gradually larger in accordance with the size of our family. Two kids: Subaru wagon. Three kids: Minivan. Yep, I'm a soccer mom.
