Used Hybrids Available? February 04, 2005 6:49 PM

I would love a hybrid but can't afford a new one. It's been almost impossible to find a used one. Does anyone predict that more used ones will be available on the market soon?  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Feeling used? February 05, 2005 2:01 PM

Oh, yes. I think that within one or two years, a lot of Hybrid owners will be looking to trade in for the latest model. We're the type of people who want (whether or not we can afford is a different story) the newest and the most technological product. The only problem is that there will then be a thousand people wanting to buy an old Hybrid for every one person who is ready to move on to the 2006 or 2007. (sigh) Good luck-keep checking with the local dealership-you can ask them to call you for a test drive as soon as one comes in used! ~Michelle  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
I second what Michelle said. February 06, 2005 7:11 PM

I also think that especially with larger hybrids coming on the market that some people will trade in their compact for a larged vehicle that they may feel would better suit their lifestyle.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Used Hybred February 07, 2005 6:48 AM

There have been very few coming available, and I found that they are asking more $$ for them than the new ones, since you can drive away with it. I've been talking to people about hybrids too, and think about why they want one. Honda is selling a hybrid that is not great on gas, but has wonderful power.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Used February 11, 2005 3:27 PM

I have a 2002 Prius and knew when I bought it that the newer models would be improved, bigger and that I would want one. I can't afford to trade mine in and just out of curiosity I listed mine on cars.com. I got offers from all over the world! I suggest you query cars.com and vehix.com because local dealers will let you know as soon as they get a used one and this year it seems a number of them are coming on the market because of the 2005 model demand and the introduction of the Toyota hybrid SUV. The dealers will fall over each other trying to get the sale once they get one.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Hybrids March 03, 2005 6:32 AM

I live in India. A large Company manufactures Electric Vehicles, but not Hybrids. I wonder if could get information/assistance in introducing Hybrids in India. Used Hybrids would have a good market here, as they would cost much less to buy.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Now that the manufacturers are producing SUV hybrids you should see a lot more people going in that direction. I will be trading in my vehicle for an suv hybrid this year. I love SUV's but hate the horrible gas mileage.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
