All for driving a car that you don't like! Ah, the open-mindedness
and "caring" of the American Left knows no bounds! LOL! You are ugly
and your mother dresses you funny.

10 years currently is the best they can offer in real world data.
Extrapolating from that is promising - but no hard proven data, of
course. OTOH, on the 10 year mark they're doing a bunch better than the
average car.

I don't know the age distribution of cars in your part of the world, but
'over here' it's about 15-18 years. From the already available data, I
wouldn't really worry.


The discussion doesn't work that way - whenever I counter one of your
unsubstantiated claims, you decide it's not important.

Gets really boring...


The usual way to compare is by looking at raws (like copper, or
aluminum), and factoring in the usage of any given one of these. As well
as capturing what it takes to disassemble and recover materials out of
it.

An example, although not directly related to the hybrid technology: the
steering wheel, after removing the airbag and electronic bits clipped on
to it, is one single piece of polyurethane in order to facilitate
recycling.

Ever visited a modern recycling facility? Cars, dishwashers, doesn't
matter... the organisation of dismantling is amazing.


I'm sure we all know. And we all know that if gas were 5 times the
price, you're filthy rich so you can finance it. But with more and more
people caring about their energy usage, less and less will be impressed.

Then you are part of the problem and not the solution.  Thanks for
sharing.

That's because you don't give a shit about the planet or about people.


They make sense to people who give a shit and who bother to think.


I'm sure you know all about having your eyes closed.  Try opening yours
for a change.


You're anything but a laugh; you're pathetic.

LOL! You are an idiot if you believe that gas mileage equates with

No doubt given the opportunity you would seek to forcibly impose your
values on the rest of us, just because you *care* so damned much!


Another whopper!! Gad you libs are nothing if not predictable!
