What would you recommend as the best earth-friendly car with a great MPG?
I am going to be making my first solo car purchase in a few months. I want a newer car (2010 an d up) that is fuel efficient and as earth friendly as a car can be. I drive around a lot for work - on the highway more than anywhere else.
Nissan Altima - This mid-sized sedan is a very popular choice for buyers right now. It has a rather green low-emissions engine, which makes it stand out in environmental technology examples. Turning to this car can help you with your selection of finding great eco-friendly cars.
It's hard to go wrong with A Toyota Corolla.
Battery technology may see earth friendly at first, but the cost to manufacture the batteries and the rare earth metals in the engines may counter act any benefit.
It's my understanding German Cars are designed to be recycled because of German Law, you may want to look into this.
Volkswagon Turbo Diesels are very fuel efficient, but you may not like the ride or styling. The best way to be earth friendly is to maintain your car and to drive it as little as possible.
Any car with 2 passengers is likely more earth friendly than a econobox with 1 driver.
SUV's are very earth friendly if used at capacity. Where I live I see people in big SUV's all the time driving alone. Makes no sense why they didn't just get a car.
Hi, I write a blog about how to purchase a car and save money and not be taken advantage of. However I am still early in my blog and have not addressed a lot of topics as of yet. You may want to read what I have so far, I add things to it on a regular basis. I currenlty sell cars "Toyota" however I am not a commissioned sales person and I only sell part time due to some injuries I sustained while serving in the Military. However there are a couple things to think of when considering "Green" vehicles. Yes Hybrids will get GREAT gas mileage compared to other cars, the price is higher because of the technology and such and the car will pay for that extra cost in a short number of years based upon how many miles per year you drive. Toyota is known for its reliability and resale value which in itself is a "Green" trait, since a vehicle is made up of a large amount of resources to produce the vehicle you want it to be operational as long as possible before more resources are needed to replace it. Consumer Reports does LONG term research on vehicles and how reliable they are over short, midrange and long time periods. Consumer Reports shows that all manufacturers do a very good job on quality for 1-3 years, most do a good job for 4-7 years but only 2 do a good job at 8-10 years and those 2 being Honda and Toyota. I personally believe Honda to be losing some of its quality reputation giving way to Toyota as the best choice in that reguards. Hyundai however has been making great strides to improve its once bleak quality reputation and may be another manufacturer to consider.
Feel free to ask questions if you want, I will gladly provide advice.
