I'm in the market for a new set of wheels. I also just said that like the Popular Guy in any John Hughes movie, complete with a smirk and a leather jacket slung over the shoulder. Sorry about that. Please excuse me while I go make out with Molly Ringwald.
Anyway, I'm liking this particular hybrid SUV, but loving the irony of hybrid SUVs in general. This particular car won the best SUV award from some environmental agency, which is like being praised for destroying the planet only slightly less than bigger cars. Like giving Charles Manson an award for not being Hitler.
It used to be that a hybrid meant that its owner cared about the planet and conscientiously plugged in their car every night. Nowadays it doesn't mean anything quite that pure. "You know, it's just so much better for the environ...ooh, heated seats!"
