    you lease it then the price is irrelevant because you are making payments and will never pay $50k.

    It's outrageous for me - and I live in Los Angeles, the home of "car size/price makes up for lack of penis size" (Hummers?  Really?  You need a personnel carrier to take your one child to school?) -

    But the idea of spending that much on a car is ridiculous.  

    Still, if I could find a way to justify trading in a paid-off car with 60k miles on it for a Leaf, I would.

    Not sure I'd do it for a hybrid, though.  More miles to the gallon still means burning fossil fuels.  If I'm gonna go, I'm going all the way, or sticking with this car until it dies.

    Why is it that a 3% tax increase for the wealthy is considered "socialism" and an 8% wage cut for the middle class is "doing your part"? MartyM

      argument for buying an electric car over a gasoline or diesel powered car.  Where does the electricity come from?

      The efficiency of swapping point source pollution controls at power plants instead of installing pollution control devices on millions of cars is a better argument.

      the fact that you're right is nothing more than interesting
