Hello members of Car Forums! This is my first time posting on this forum so please do forgive me if I sound too new. This isn't my first car purchase, but it's the first time I really feel connected with the process and involved, so I wanted to make sure I came to the right place. I'm looking to buy a used car with about a 8,000 max budget and today I ran into something that I wanted to ask some knowledgeable people about. A used dealership (a pretty well respected and legit one) near me got in a pair of 2011 Ford Fusion Hybrids today for $8500 each. They are in immaculate condition inside, have brand new looking tires, and only have about 40,000 on the odometer. The cars came from a fleet so they are both equipped the same. The owner of the lot said he only has them priced where he does due to the fact that they both definitely have some hail damage. This doesn't bother me, as I know it can positively effect price for the buyer without much of a downside beside aesthetics. I was wondering what you all think about even looking at an 8 year old hybrid car. I test drove one of the two and it seemed to be quite the exquisite experience. Everything was perfect, worked perfectly, sounded perfectly...(there was barely any sound at all) I know batteries are a concern as well as the CVT but they really do seem to be nice cars. Any opinions, thoughts, or concerns?
I am looking at a 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid limited AWD 165,000 miles. The seller is asking $2900 which seems to be a great deal. I have been doing alot of research and have found that there was a problem with the inverter going bad and costing more than the car is worth to replace. I also checked the Carfax and there are no open recalls. My questions are... Is this really something to worry about? (The car has 165,000 miles. If this was a problem wouldn't the inverter have already gone bad? If I needed to fix this could I do it myself? (I have little knowledge about cars but am always ready to learn) should I still get this car? Thanks. Any help is much appreciated.
Good read on how quickly hybrid vehicle technology has been adopted in Vancouver and in its various different models since 2000: http://driving.ca/ch...ve-in-continues
Hi everybody, I'm studying automotive systems engineering in Germany. In the framework of a seminar paper I want to find out, what you expect from hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs). The survey I prepared will take an est. 3-5 min. to fill out and by doing so you would help me pretty much :-). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFpmZzU2bWtxUmgxVDB2VFBtYzhvQUE6M A Regards, Sven PS I hope this is the right category to place my survey - I checked all the categories and this was the one I thought matched best.
