Fair? What's unfair about it? Do you, dear author, claim that all vehicles have the same service life? The fact

Oops! You misspelled "fantasy."

that the Hummer will last twice as long, in miles, as the Prius is precisely the issue!

No, not all cars have the same service life. Toyotas last a lot longer than GMs.

100,000 miles is just the warranty for the Prius' batteries. Hummers have the same length powertrain warranty. Did you click your ruby slippers together and land in a world where Toyotas break right after the warranty expires, but GMs last two or three times as long?

This piece has been thoroughly discredited on this forum several times and keeps reappearing. I'm wondering if it was written by someone at DU to make conservatives look bad.

Just to clarify, I meant the original piece comparing the “real” cost of the Hummer and Prius keeps reappearing. Not this one, which is more intelligently written and only references the original one.

Irrelevant.

Does the Toyota Prius last longer than the Hummer H2?

I don't think so.
