Used Hybrids Are Pretty Cheap. But Are They Worth It?

Used Hybrids Are Pretty Cheap. But Are They Worth It?

In the news this week, we discuss the German court's decision to consider Tesla's touchscreen wiper controls as illegal following a car accident, and a loophole through the Malaysian car tax system that allows for discounts for up to 60%. We also discuss Gordon Murray's T.50 - a McLaren F1 successor that he's calling 'the last great analogue supercar'.

 

As for our used car buying guide, we're focusing on hybrid cars as prices of these cars, such as the 2013 Audi A6 Hybrid and the Mercedes-Benz E300 BlueTec Hybrid have dropped significantly. Should you snap one up immediately, or approach with caution? What are the benefits and pitfalls of buying a used hybrid car?
