Pros and Cons of Buying a Used Hybrid
With fuel prices in some areas of the country remaining over $5 a gallon, many consumers are taking a second look at buying a hybrid vehicle rather than a conventional vehicle. A hybrid typically offers significantly better fuel economy than the equivalent gasoline-powered version. For example, the 2021 Toyota Corolla Hybrid has an EPA fuel economy rating of 52 miles per gallon combined versus 33 miles per gallon combined for the conventional Corolla. The EPA pegs the annual fuel cost for the Corolla Hybrid at $1,100 compared to $1,700 for the conventional Corolla. But while better fuel economy is appealing, it has to be weighed against some of the cons of buying a hybrid. Among them are higher acquisition cost and the potential they will be more difficult and more expensive to service.
