plod: My life is far to unorganised to make an EV work for me. Will be looking at hybrids when the time comes I think
Just got rid of ours in PX for a Volvo diesel.
The a/c compressor needed replacing. $3,500 + GST and fitting...! It's a special part due to the hybrid engine. I even tried Japan direct, as I am going there later in the year - still US$1500. Had a headlight go on it - that was not far off the same money, but that was under warranty fortunately.
The windscreen went and was replaced with a Chinese one despite my protestations. The insurers would not pay to import the correct one from Japan, which was lighter in weight, specially heat reflective (so the a/c did not have to work so hard) and so on.
The diesel, to cap it all, returns better MPG...!
What did you have?
Toyota Alphard Hybrid.
