You are correct. I sat in Insight before, at traffic light the air con will be switched off. just hot air coming out.


I drive civic hybrid. No such thing. Engine cut off when car is stationary. But aircon still works normally

For Hybrid cars, seem all got promotions as:
Toyota prius 140K
Toyota prius C 97K
Honda insight 110K
Honda civic hybrid 126K
Considering the price factors & also performance of their hybrid, how you guys think?
Which car is more worthy to buy?


Ask yourself what you want, best FC or style. Toyota hybrid is a full hybrid, driven hard you will still get above 20km/l.

How do you think about Prius or Prius C?

Prius is much more expensive than Honda insight cos they r almost same price in other countries. A bit over priced.
For Prius C, I think the interior is too plastic.

I can't share much on the Honda Hybrids, but if you really into saving the earth and really high mileage, then go for the Prius. Comparing Toyota to Honda Hybrid car price, the ROI is hard to achieve based on petrol.

In SG, ALL CARS ARE WAY OVER PRICED!

I got my PC at 113k SGD, in MY, it's 94K RM. Means for my car, I can buy 3 in MY...


As for plastic, I love it, those leather are really hard to maintain unless you never park under the sun but this is up to individual. If you like leather and don't have much budget, you can look at VW cars, their leather dash is really nice.

Yeah, people always comprain about hard plastics. I like it over soft touch plastics as it's maintenance free and is much more hard wearing.

I think it's because of the magazine or top gear that they watch make them think that way.

That day I was ferrying my ex colleague, he say new car ah, first thing sit down knock on my dash........ dry.gif

Those leather or PU will melt under sun, become sticky and have to change, it's so much worst than plastic as the car age....

This post I made in May this year on another thread discussing hybrids.....but no comments at all....so...Resurrecting this thread to discuss hybrid and electric vehicles.

First off, any MCFers with experience of driving hybrids can share on

1. Reduced fuel costs. Ie. How much more you get per litre vs conventional?

2. What are maintenance costs like esp. Hybrid battery?

3. Lower ARF rebate/resale value/ higher road tax?

3. What recommended models such as Civic hybrid, Harrier hybrid, Estima hybrid, Rx450h etc to get?

I think in today's technology, no longer worth it to buy a Hybrid car, a normal Altis I believe some can hit over 18km/l. Friend recently bought a new B class and achieving over 17km/l as well. Most smaller size conti cars are giving really good FC, price are almost the same as Hybrid and best of all get back full parf rebate. 

 

My Prius C currently giving me around 24km/l per month. Given the price of a Hybrid car and only achieving 24km/l I would rather pay a little more to get other cars thats available in the Market.

Agree with this bro....

 

Unless 100% city driving, i don't see how hybrid can save much given a premium is paid for buying one. The extra can offset the fuel from less efficient car

My friend's Cayenne Hybrid got problem with the system but under warranty with Stuttgart so nvm let them settle. It's been in the shop for like the past 3-4 weeks liao but she's got a courtesy car from them.

 

Apparently a replacement battery costs around 28k, so she's happy to pay the 2.8k annually for the extended warranty which also covers the engine/drivetrain/etc.

Hybrid cars great for stop start traffic. Let the battery power move your car and save some fuel. Also, you have a silent cabin when your car is stopped.

Agree...

 

If there is say 50% of highway driving, probably hybrid will not be worth paying for...

Most car these day are pretty efficient in highway driving.

Think toyota and lexus hybrid system more relible than porsche also cheaper to maintain.

Battery replacement for RX450 about 10-15k. But this is lexus. Toyota would be much more cheaper
