Really? Save a few ounces of fuel for land fills full of dead batteries? If a battery is in need of replacement after a year of driving, clearly there is something wrong. And if the technology is not perfected, don't install it in a $60k car. If they gave you a car which wouldn't start every other time because of new improved fuel efficiency, would you also call it teething problems? Give me a break.... They have years of development time and we're not their guinea pigs. I am very concerned based on these reports.
