I have to agree. The cost of battery is one of my problems when it comes to maintenance, the rest is so cool with the car.

This is why electric cars presently make no sense to me. An electric that goes 70 miles on a charge is like a car with a 2 gallon tank. This person would drive 70 miles per day to work, five days a week. On a normal ecomony car this would cost 10 gallons a week, at $4 per gallon, $40 per week or $2000 per year. Over a 5 year life, this would cost $10,000. But an electric car costs a lot more than $10,000 more than it's gasoline counterpart. And I did not include the cost of the elctricity, nor the cost of a battery, which could be toast after 5 years, nor the fact that the electric could not be used on any long trips. On the other hand, A five year old Fit, is still a great car that will last a long long time. I'll keep my gen I Insight, thank you.
