What is your opinion on this? I might consider buying a 2014 Honda CR-Z Hybrid

The one I found is priced at $10,000, which is still fair for a vehicle with

It is a two-seater sports car with hybrid features and was designed with sporty performance and fuel economy in mind. 

Its standard transmission runs in six-speed manual, but its trims (the standard & EX version) can also have CVT automatic transmissions with paddle shifters plus Eco assist

The dash display changes color from blue to green to give immediate feedback on the vehicle's efficiency

The steering wheel contains controls for the audio system, cruise, Bluetooth and navigation systems

The engine contains 1.5-liters of fuel and has a 16-valve i-VTEC engine that delivers 122 horsepower. It is also supported by an electric motor.

The Environmental Protection Agency recorded the vehicle's fuel economy at 35 miles per gallon in city and 39 MPG on highways.

Not to mention the fact that it has an Integrated Motor Assist system which harnesses kinetic energy to boost horsepower and efficiency

It can accelerate from 50 miles per hour to 70 miles per hour in under 6.7 seconds

And from that same rate, it can achieve a complete stop by just covering 197 ft. of distance

It has a curb-to-curb diameter of 35.4 ft

Plus, it has a vast rear cargo space due to two-seat configuration. The rear cargo floor can be raised to show a rear cargo console that can be fitted with additional items

By the looks of it, a good option if you were on a tight budget but still prioritizing quantity.

      Well this is a first.
      Apparently, after months of easy puzzles, the August/September “Guess the Car” contest has stumped our readers.
      So far, Counterman hasn’t received any correct answers. However, we’ve seen some excellent guesses, and we can tell you this: Some of you are on the right track.
      The woman in the picture is having an “aha moment.” That much is obvious. But how does that translate into the name of a vehicle model?
      Here are a few answers that are close but not correct:
      Fiat Idea GM Bright Idea Honda Insight If we don’t receive any correct answers in the next week or two, we’ll provide more clues to help you gain some clarity on the current puzzle.

      Continental has expanded its line of hybrid-battery cooling fans to provide coverage for some of the most popular hybrid models on the road today.
      The growing line now delivers direct-replacement fans for Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, KIA and Toyota hybrid models from 2003 to 2021.
      “As the average age of hybrid vehicles on the road continues to climb, it is very important that the ‘air-cooled’ technology used to keep the battery and battery cells properly cooled continues to operate to OE specifications,” said Christina Bergstrom, Continental senior product manager. “That is why we have continued to expand our hybrid-battery cooling fan coverage to popular model years of the Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Impala and Volt, Ford C-Max and Fusion, Honda Civic, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, Toyota Camry and Prius, and more. The battery packs on these vehicles can begin to weaken after only five years of service and the cooling fans may need to be replaced in the seventh and eighth year in order to maintain required cooling performance.”
      Designed as an exact replacement for the original fan, Continental hybrid-battery cooling fans restore the original battery cooling performance to the vehicle. Ensuring that the fan is properly functioning is critical to maintaining the health of the battery and the vehicle’s overall fuel economy. The fans feature an OE design, including identical mounting locations and plug-and-play electrical connections, that helps ensure an easy installation.

      Counterman’s “
      link hidden, please login to view” contest challenges our readers to solve an automotive riddle, for a chance to win $100. And each month, we receive hundreds of responses from aftermarket professionals trying to guess the model of the vehicle depicted. The correct answer for the June/July contest is the Ford Escape. The winner is Travis Cashman, parts manager at Glavan Ford of Clay Center in Clay Center, Kansas.
      Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.
      CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?
      TC: Since October of last year.
      CM: What were you doing before then?
      TC: I was a welder.
      CM: What do you like most about your job?
      TC: I like interacting with people.
      CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?
      TC: That’s a tough one. We’ve had people ask for blinker fluid and muffler bearings, as a joke. But I’d have to think about this one.
      CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?
      TC: Does it have to be street legal?
      CM: Not necessarily.
      TC: I had an ‘86 Monte Carlo SS dirt-track racer, street stock, had a 383 stroker and a three-speed transmission. Full-floater 9-inch rear end.
      CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?
      TC: Ride my motorcycle, go hunting and fishing.
      CM: What’s your dream car?
      TC: A ‘63 corvette with a split window, four-speed transmission, and I know they didn’t make it in 1963, but it would be the 427 big block that came out in ’66. Hunter green with tan leather interior.
