That's assuming they DO sell other GM brands, besides just Cadillac. Most of the local ones here don't, though you have a point that rural locations may have different set-ups.

It's hard to go wrong with AWD if you are going to have to endure severe winter driving conditions. But also, remember that AWD has more differentials and the need for more service/fluid-changes. If...

My point was, though, that 45 minutes of driving, in this area, often doesn't get one very far. Also, you and I might just have a different idea, personally, of what constitutes a reasonable distance...

Yes, definitely...but few others, if any, can equal the amount spent on new cars as in the SoCal/L.A. and D.C.-Baltimore areas. The large number of stable and/or high-paying jobs in this area reaps...

Agreed that it may (?) take a lot of gas saved, over several years, to recover the difference in purchase price of a Prius over, say, a cheaper Corolla or Yaris. But hybrids do not sell on just gas...
