Keep in mind that this review is under TREEHUGGER. Hence the hybrid situation. Yet, this is still a horrible review. Like 40 MPG is good or something what a joke. I don't know if anyone can recall the gio metro back in the 90s, i dont quite remember either because I was really young, but I believe that the Gio got 50-60MPG, also for no where near the prices they charge now days for the same type of car with less MPG. In fact the prices for vehicles now days have become rather outrageous. There Pushing hybrids, this is also a joke. Why go half way, just go electric, we already have the know how to do it. Unfortunately, greed is what drives these people, and they make all there money off poor saps like us, by regulating every detail in our lives, even our vehicles. For instance a person backed up and killed a kid. All the sudden they are thinking about mandating that every new vehicle have a rear view camera, because one moron screwed up, thus adding to the bill at checkout. Here is an idea, make affordable cheap cars, for people who just need a means to get around, this also would help the job situation. In third world countries where they cannot afford the price tags we have, guess what they drive? Dirt bikes, and motorcycles, and cheap cars, sometimes 2 or 3 people on one dirt bike. Some motorcycles 200cc and down get 80+mpg, now thats awesome. Sorry for ranting on, but I feel as if where being taken advantage of more and more. Im a young man too, not old, but have seen enough changes in the last 14 years alone. I remember along time ago, when I was really young, around 1989, I saw the gas price and for some reason, this is the only gas price i have ever remembered in detail, it was 89 cents. Im telling you the truth, greed has grown out of control. Unfortunately all of our grown men in this nation have lost there balls, sold out, and have given into the easy way out. Cowards! Once again I apologize for the my frustration.
