It's tasty, has a malt forward flavor with citrus after tastes.

But it gives me a headache.

I hear it makes you enjoy the smell of your own farts.

The battery is pretty expensive when it comes time to replace. Probably cancelling out the gas savings to that point

Wait a few months if you can. The 2013 hover cars will be out in June!

I bought the Prius c Thursday. It's the 'city' version that's a bit smaller. It's perfect for us tooling around town with our two kids. We drove many many small subcompacts and it has the best characteristics of ride, fuel savings and interior layout. Our other car is a pilot, so the severe lack of hauling capability was a non-issue for me.

The battery comes with an 8 year 100,000 mile warranty.

Larger carbon footprint than an H2 made in the USA.

But the fuel savings are good if you plan to keep the car a long time.

I like the idea of hybrids but I cannot get on board with the Prius and similar designed hybrids. So ugly. I understand the design is aerodynamic and improves fuel economy. I would happily purchase an accord or camry hybrid. I've driven both full gas versions and been very happy with each.
