I've been considering down sizing too, my wife and I don't have children - so a smaller, more economical car would suit us better.
...But I love my old Subaru, and for sentimental reasons it would be damn hard to let her go!
The Isuzu is really useful too, towing trailers and carrying loads etc, plus its cheap to run being a diesel so it gets driven to work everyday.
I'm not convinced hybrids are the way to go, their mileage isn't all that impressive compared to some new generation diesels, and I dread to think how much a new battery would be when it comes time to replace.

One choice that gets quite overlooked in this country are CNG powered vehicles, CNG used to be really popular in the 80's but only buses now seem to use it? I wonder if it will ever make a comeback?
