Strong hate words from someone so young and probably not learned in the principles and concerns of the environmentalist or the situation.

Not that I support it either...but I don't hate them...I rather admire someone being so set in their principles to spend more money on a car than really needs to be spent for transportation...in light of their concerns and in what they really get (or not get).

Well...try http://www.insightcentral.net/forum/. This is (obviously) the "main" forum for Honda Insight owners. There are a few discussion on going there. I also know of one other site that gives the good and the bad from the owner's perspectives...I'll see if I can find it again.

What the hell? How ignorant can people really be? Aside from what some people may believe a car is to get your from point A-B in a timely, cost effective and efficient way. I love how people think that all cars are made to be fast and sporty.

No fear, hybride doesn't mean pure electric and the electric power just came out of powerplants which using their own sources (sometimes oil, nuclear...). Gasoline and Diesel cars doesn't leave us soon.

I live in California, and I drive through smog everyday. There is no reason why you should be against hybrids. They are one of the oldest cars (other than steam) originating in the early 1900s. Refering to the Honda Accord Hybrid, they are extremely powerful; refering to trains, the diesel electric hybrid has alot of potential.

I deal with your kind everyday at school. The S-tuner or the classic rod guys who don't understand heads or tails about science, yet think they know everything about engines and performance (guess why the japanese are beating america in automotive technology).

Supercars aren't super because of tradition and conservatism, but involve the creative and progressive mind to apply new and renewed technology...

See the pict below, It's a Toyota Volta HYBRID...

I'm not sure about the progressive mind, but I think many of the folks who take that attitude against hybrid cars just lack information.

I admit not being well informed in performance car specifications or requirements, but am not going to jeer at those who do. (Or even act like it).

When gas reaches $2.50 to $3.00 per gallon by the end of summer I'll be glad that I made some good choices with my car, but I'm no better than anyone else.
We all pump.

Now.....ask me how to maximize fuel economy in whatever you may drive, and I might can help in that regards.

try the honda web page, they're comin out with some new modles, they brought 3 to my school, they were ok, but im not an environmentalist. i'd prefer a big truck with tons of horse power and lots of smog than a tiny honda with 0 smog, but that's just me

my mom has a hybrid, and i don't see why someone coudln't like them.

they don't do anything bad to you , infact they help you. they take up less gas so that you can keep your muscle car longer (last estimated gasoline depletion i heard was 2020). i'm upset that i will only be able to keep my gas cars for 15 more years, and i bet a whole bunch of others are too.

So how can you not like what other people drive if it's helping you and not hurting you in any way. i hate SUVs, but that's becasue they block my view when i'm trying to drive. I don't even care that they take up more gas, because the owner pays.

My mom gets 500 miles a tank and doesn't block traffic. why would anyone hate on that. maybe if tthey want to increase this country's oil consumption so we can "free the people of iraq" AKA get good leads to their oil...

or why would someone not care about the environment. maybe i'm just going off more than i would because i've had a few drinks, but if u plan to have any kids, imo the next gen of people are the last. i have a really low negative view of the world. i'm not having kids because of it, and if i do, i'll help out some ones who need adoption.

so stop hating hybrid cars and go get educated.

Not directed at you, but rather where ever you got that from. That's bullshit.
