CRV is a good car.

2015 Fit, 50k miles, $10k, have to decide quick because is looking to move it pronto. I trust they have taken good care of the car and done all maintenance at dealer as prescribed but I know nothing about the car itself but am in need...  man i hate cars

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

If you hate cars, the Fit was built for you. Soulless driving experience, but overall a really remarkable car.

Seriously look at the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV if those are your criteria. Thing has four electric motors driving the wheels so it has quite a bit of pickup. It is a series hybrid as well, so the engine is there to charge the batteries, not take over driving when you get over 30 mph or whatever the prius does.

I pulled up the specs, my main question with plug in hybrids is do I have to rearrange my power situation in the garage? I'm in a 1965 house and I'm not sure the electrical would be good to go right off the bat.

Many (most?) plug-in hybrids in the US can be charged using 120V, it just takes a lot longer.

The charger that comes with the car is a standard 110V plug. You can purchase one that uses 220v if you want for 4hour rather than 8 hour full charge which will likely need an electrician.

I took intro to EE, I'm pretty sure all you need to do is hook up two cables in serial to get the voltages to stack up.

I wouldn't get too hung up on Gas mileage.  When you do out the math out it's not that much of a savings.

So much agreement.
