Yes it is. Not to mention the fact that properly disposing of new "hybrid" batteries and such is extremely expensive and costly to do.

Buying a used car is a lot cheaper these days. The number of miles is the big thing. Lot of cars had head gasket problems or transmission problems. They are not a cheap fix. On the other hand, you can ask for the service records. If they are not available, get the Vin # and ask carfax. They can tell you what the car you are interested in has gone through. Accident, flood, ect. If your dealership says things like " this is a steal, why do you want all this stuff for ?" Leave !

Comfort. Performance. Size. Appearance. Cost. Resale value. Insurance cost. Property taxes. Reliability. Those are all important considerations. Any of these could trump fuel economy. It is not all about mpg.

Yes and No. You are stopping production of new Cars which Is beneficial, but you're not stopping the use of petroleum, which can be harmful to the environment.
