Why buy a hybrid?

Patrick Bedard at car and driver lets readers in on a little secret about buying a hybrid. It's not about the money saved, it's about making a statement.

It's amazing to him why when you go out and buy "a shiny Ford F-250 Harley-Davidson Super Duty" no one will ever say, "You know, the mileage is not that great. You'll have to drive it till it's as used as Willie Nelson to save gas enough to get your cost back." But if you buy a hybrid, that will be the first comment you hear from everyone.

But just as with any car purchase that involves anything larger than a GEO Metro, it's all about choice and what you want to have. His most telling point: "If you want to save money on your next car, here's my advice: Skip the onboard nav option. You'll never save enough in maps and 50-cent phone calls to get your initial cost back."
