    I'm still driving the 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid w/ 5-speed stickshift that I bought new to replace a used 1992 Saturn 4-door sedan w/ ~140K on it.  It was starting to need more money thrown at it than I cared to, plus (though I'm not normally an early-adopter type) I wanted to encourage automakers to pursue the then-newfangled hybrid technologies and to take a marketplace measure to register my disgust w/ the Iraq invasion I (and millions of others worldwide) had been utterly unable to prevent.

    It's been a good little car, w/ reasonable room for my 5-member family--for short trips, anyway.  I'm hoping to get another couple of years out of it--then (thanks in no small part to comments around here) looking seriously at a Chevy Volt!

    Usually getting 39-40 mpg in combined city/highway driving.  Best was 46; worst was 36-38, when it needed a new oxygen sensor.

    I hope that's not too much detail--as you can tell, it's a source of some good feelings!
