Re: Do you own or would you buy an electric car?

What always bothers me is - they burn fossil fuels to make electricity - so are electric cars really that much better environmentally? I don't know - I have never really researched anything about them - but they are still burning something to make them go - just in a power plant not the engine. It'...

Re: Do you own or would you buy an electric car?

We have a hybrid, it's 6 years old, bought it new, never had a problem with it. I think it might still be under some portion of its warranty.
