Most likely a Prius unless Ford releases a Focus hybrid. Like the Focus in general but in 3 years spent more in repairs than a friend has in 350k+ miles in their Prius, and that includes a battery cell replacement on the Prius.

The C-Max hybrid is the Focus Hybrid since in other markets it is known as the Focus C-Max (at least the first generation models), and it is based on the same platform as the Focus.

I'd have to be getting something really special to justify getting rid of mine...

Like a 94 Viper or Mazda FD!

I replaced my Focus with a 2012 V6 Mustang and a 1995 Neon. Now I find myself wanting another Focus.. It would need to be a mint 2.3 hatch or wagon in a weird color though, so Im in no rush.

Good point... C-Max's don't get very good reviews though. If I were to by a hybrid hard to beat a Toyota in that area.
