Re: Will there be special tax for Hybrid car soon ?

Hi. I heard from a PI who is not selling Hybrid Insight saying that do not commit in hybrid car as there will be special tax next year or tax changes next year by gov. What do you guys think?

If instead of doing a rolling start at 50kph on 2nd gear, you *might* be able to lead during the initial launch from standstill by taking advantage of the turbo lag?

Possible?

Honda originally planed to equip future generations of large cars like the Accord and Acura TL, TSX a...
