PS Why buy a new car now? The average car lasts 15 years...in 10 years it might be obsolete when new fuel programmes develop...
If the government gets it's hands on it, it will be a good thing since I never placed much hope in manufacturing and the government will ensure it will die.

I don't buy brand new because I don't want to take the first hit of depreciation. This way I can mod any car I want without worrying about warranty. So, what is your solution? Wait for 10-15 years when the new program comes then buy it? What if a new program comes out in 2 years after that? Can't keep chasing the fuel programs.
