Not many cars on this list that I'd want to sit in for a long highway drive...

The problem with electric/hybrid cars is that the batteries cost $15,000+ and need to be replaced every 5 years or so. I'd like to see a similar list without the electric cars.

I've owned this car for 13 months, driven it 20000 miles averaging 36MPG and I must say that it is the best car I've ever owned. I've owned a Ford Maverick, a Toyot pick-up, a Volvo 240DL, a Volvo 240 Wagon a Hyundi Excel, a Saab 900S, two Toyota Camrys besides this one, a Mazda Protege, a Nissan Sentra, and a Ford Maverick. Most of these cars I drove over 100K miles in. This one has averaged better MPG than my Nissan's highway mileage and is much roomier.

To my knowledge Toyota has never replaced a single battery in its hybrid fleet for manufacturing defects or from "wearing out." I too had that concern, but it proved to be unfounded. This car drives like a V-6 with lots of power and yet is a 4 cylinder. It truly is an amazing feat of engineering. I have a PhD in engineering so I can recognize a good design.

Best of all, it's only about $1000 more than the standard Camry.
