Even though we've probably saved your arse somewhere down the line. Just keep biting the hand that feeds you

I was born here anyways. And I do sometimes show a little biased towards American cars, the good ones that is No offense to any people born in Asia, everybody else hates the US so it's all good

None taken. I've never been there myself but I've read enough stuff to know the I really don't want to go there. Perhaps a once, but not for too long. I understand the culture and what not is different, but I'm still very nationalistic to the US

I can see the European thing but not Asia. And I'm half Asian too! And maybe I wouldn't kill myself over Europe, but I'll still choose the US in a heartbeat

And why Asia? I'd rather torture myself to death than live there Asian cars, overall, are the worst and more boring than any other region Plus China and North Korea are very close, and with North Korea especially, I want to stay the farthest away

@Patrick I'd rather shoot myself. Nice vacation spots (especially Europe) but I'd hate to live there. Except MAYBE Monaco since they have no taxes, but you need to be EXTREMLY rich

@David They're not here to stay. People have just been brainwashed into thinking that. What do hybrids still run on? GAS! The future is hydrogen and that still needs further development

I think Andy needs to stop being racist against hybrids. Sorry man, but they're here, and I think they're here to stay. I don't have any special liking for them, but I don't hate em

The TDI VW Polo gets 70 mpg.

Andy sometimes.... I think you should move to Europe or Asia.

I know we have higher safety standards which add weight and our fuel is worse, but come on!

The way forward meaning starting to match the mpg of a non-hybrid Euro car Put it this way, the Toyota Hilux diesel (Japanese or whatever), the BIG indestructible pick-up, can get 36mpg! Yet our companies think good mpg or our pick-ups is 22
Andy Rogers Feb 10, 2011
So now this normal American car gets the same mpg as a normal Euro car? The way forward for our gasoline cars? *reads on* Oh wait never mind it's still basically a dumb hybrid

Vauxhall cars = Opel cars With the exception of a few, which still aren't made by Vauxhall at all (ex Vauxhall Monaro = Holden Monaro)
