I'm thinking of getting one of these. I care about the environment about 1% and personally saving money at the gas pump about 99% so try and keep that in mind.
2008 Honda Civic Hybrid
Gets 40/45 MPG city/highway. Most of my miles are EDIT CITY.
Less expensive by a couple grand than the TD Jetta
If I get one in August, I can probably get a deal on the 08
Hybrid battery is expensive and needs replacing at some point (I think 100K miles)
2009 WV Jetta Turbo Diesel
Gets 45/60 city/highway.
Diesel engines last forever and ever
Diesel engine runs louder
Uses diesel fuel which is not only more $$$ but the price jumps around all the time
... Which one should I consider? Which one would you get?
