I voted for Explorer over at the link. For car I voted for the lesser of evils, Leaf. It'll be Focus in 2012

Volt has it in the bag. The car deserves it deeply. I'd take the Explorer over the two Chrysler's as well.

True, the Volt has it hands down. Its innovative but not cost effective. Big difference. But, like somebody said, we have to start somewhere. Color me unimpressed with not only the Volt but all Hybrids Ford included. Call me when they really make sense money wise. Until then pass.

...Call me when they really make sense money wise. Until then pass.
imho that ^ isn't much different from saying any advanced feature ought to make money sense
- EcoBoost
- Sync/My_Touch
- Nav
- all the sensor safety stuff
They all, including Hybrids, have value to some people
but
none of them save you money.

the Volt got my vote

...no idea which of the non-trucks is really the best
