Honda Crowned Greenest Automaker

The Union of Concerned Scientists released their annual "green" ranking of automakers, and for the cialis no percription fifth year in a row, Honda has taken top honors.

The study looked at 2008 models because that was the most recent year that had complete data from the EPA and Transportation Department.  The group analyzed the top eight automakers selling cars in the U.S. on both fuel economy and overnight viagra emissions for the entire fleets.  Good fuel economy and low emissions had to hold strong across all sizes of vehicles to get the best scores.  Results were also weighted based on sales.

Behind Honda by only one point was Toyota in second place and then Hyundai in third.  American automakers like Ford, GM and Chrysler made up the bottom three.

The group noted that the Prius is a major factor in Toyota's score.  If the Prius was removed, it would rank fourth overall, but the efficiency and healthy sales of the car boosted its score.

The American automakers suffered because many of the hybrid models don't offer any significant fuel savings and larger vehicles are highly inefficient.

Congratulations to get propecia cheap Honda, Toyota and Hyundai for the award! Now, if only American car makers would follow suit! But sadly, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I would love to buy an American car to replace my Toyota but the fact is it would be stupid of me to do so. I would have to pay more for a hybrid that doesn't even get better mileage than my strait up gas car.

It is not stupid to buy an North American car. This ranking is based on fleet sales. All it says is that Honda sells a greater number of fuel efficient cars than Ford. Ford sells lots of pick ups (some people work for a living). If you buy a Ford Fiesta you can count yourself among those that are fuel efficient despite the fleet of your manufacturer reflecting otherwise which ultimately is meaningless.
A Honda car is not more efficient simply because the Honda fleet is more efficient.
In my opinion this ranking is meaningless because it is consumer driven, not based on car to car comparisons.
Please stop being idiots with the anti-Americanism.

I wrote a more detailed comment and it didn't seem to go through.
Short version: this article is misleading. Buy a Ford Fiesta.
what's the whole story?

Seems a little odd to order cheap propecia me that this write up story was about 8 auto makers and there's no indication of what the us cialis difference is. Was there really that much difference between the top and buy levitra soft tabs bottom ranked car? Give more details.

If you follow the link in the story they have the numerical ratings. Seems like a significant difference between Honda and Chrysler, though I don't like the rating method, personally. I buy cars, not companies. I'd like the list of the greenest cars under $40K, then under $30K, then under $20K.

Interesting. Though this article is geared towards USA, I'm not all that surprised. While there are many good american car brands, GM and Ford is more associated with larger cars. Honda, toyota etc. sell smaller and lighter cars...

The Swedish association of green motorists actually named Wolkswagen the best in a recent test. They tried several new environmentally friendly cars, and by 4 panels of online prescription for viagra testers (family, retirees, common working man and some more) they all liked that one over the new Saab trifuel and a score of other cars.
I wrote a piece about it a while ago:
