Cars for the Consumer My spouse of  19 years comes closer to replacing our 2005 +Honda Accord Hybrid. Will it be the 2013 Lincoln MKZ hybrid? 2013 +Lexus USA ES 300h? Or the 2013 +Ford Motor Company Fusion hybrid?

For a value proposition, the Ford Fusion Hybrid would be the best choice—but the others might have a certain je ne sais quoi that could justify their higher price. Nonetheless, a bit of drive time behind the wheel would probably help in the selection process. I am doing an extended test drive (okay, it's a rental for a week-and-a-half) of a Hyundai Genesis right now, so already I am formulating some reactions to the car (it’s very smooth and blissfully quiet, but what's up with the throttle? It feels as though the car is running on a very fast idle when it's creeping, and even a light tap on the accelerator makes it lunge forward). Every car has a different driving feel, but I definitely notice a difference between the Genesis and my daily driver. So there’s no substitute for a good old-fashioned road test!
Rental? Oh! Waiting for your regular ride to get fixed.
Yes, indeedy! They say it should be done by the end of the year. :-O
