Am I The Only One?

Electrics Cars

Sure, we all like the idea of a hybrid car. Higher gas milage, less emissions, a nice little whirring sound when pulling away from a stoplight. But before you buy, are you ready to have the "hybrid" conversation with your mechanic?

"Hi, I have a Toyota Highlander and I need to replace the do-whizzit."
"Yeah, hang on... that'll be $160, and I can get you in tomorrow."
"Really? Only $160?"
"$160."
"It's a hybrid..."
"$425."
"Eeeesh, I was afraid of that."
"Yeah, and bring it in a week from Tuesday, I'll have to order the part."
