Shopping for a car and I don't buy cars often. My current daily driver (35 mile highway commute) is Dad's '93 Mazda MX-6, a sporty little thing I just can't give up. But it's got 280k on it and, well, it's time. I'm a '5-year-old used car' buyer typically. After a few weeks of reading and looking and trying to figure out the model lines and classes, I found a car yesterday that just piqued my interest: a 2014 VW Jetta Hybrid. Reviews are great (Motor Week loved the 2013), I liked the interior, controls, body, etc. Haven't driven it yet - it was Sunday. Has a 1.4L turbo engine. This one has 77,000 miles but looks brand new. Rated 42/48 mpg which would be a huge improvement over my worn out 2.5L V6 that gets 28 on a good day. Biggest question now is maintenance costs - I gotta look up how long a hybrid battery lasts and how close this one is to replacement. Any thoughts?
