In 1992, my Civic 1986 1.5 liter 93 HP had to crawl up the 4,000 feet hilly highways like a poor little snail . Otherwise, at 120K miles, it ran beautifully like new. At 70 MPH, it had to spin its engine more than 3000 RPM for sure. That's why I was not interested in the Civic Hybrid of 93 HP and waited until Honda introduced the Accord hybrid.

What happened? Reason. As in, why pay thousands more for a hybridized Accord or Civic when it's unlikely the difference will be made up in fuel costs. Also, Texas is not California, and Texans are not hybrid-crazed as many Californians seem to be.

Economics 101 happened. Supply caught up with demand.
I purchased my 2005 HCH for $500 over invoice back in November for the same reason -- the fleet dealer had a few in stock and wanted to sell them.
Why hasn't this happened with the Prius? Because supply has not yet caught up with demand.

Dear All who have responded to my topic:
I haven't been able to get back to this forum as often as I would've liked, but I've read all your responses on the warrantee/paint and fabric protector topic. I really appreciate the points you made and these are helping me make a much more informed decision!

We, the buyers, did burn our hard-earned money. I'd rather pay my son's friend so he could take my son to school for a few additional months until the HAH's price went down. We made a wrong judgment that the HAH will keep its price for a while like the Prius.

Cheer up man, at least you were first in the neighborhood. I remember spending $5 grand for a new HP laptop in 1983. It had only 256kb of ram and NO hard drive only a separate floppy. I was the first in our company to have one...

the hah seems to be a vehicle you enjoy very much. don't worry that others may or may not pay less. you seem very proud of your son, so as you know, there more important things in life than a few dollars.

I will probably have to buy another HAH in 2 years or sooner if Honda/ Acura and other auto makers do not introduce other better models that mostly meet my requirements. Honestly, I did tell my wife before I bought the HAH that I wish I could wait a little bit long so the HAH's price would be cool off a little bit.
