I didn't really think it would happen, but I'm a Prius Freak. Yes... one of those... Here's what put me over the edge. Last night I was driving home and the gas tank beeped at me indicating it needed a fill-up. I pulled off the freeway and into a Shell ($3.39 a freakin' gallon) station. As I put it in park the trip odometer turned 440 miles. Not too bad considering I wasn't even trying. The pump clicked off at 9.6 gallons. I drove 440 miles on 9.6 gallons and the tank is 11.5 gallons. I could have hit 500 easy. There you go.
Here's what else I love:
- Smart Key - keyless ignition. You just need the "key" in your pocket and you can turn the car on
- Video Display - Rear view camera, fuel consumption, stereo, climate, etc.
- Steering wheel controls
- Car Pool Lane
- Tax Rebate
- The Silent Sneak - The Prius is a ninja. There's no noise when you start it up or when you park or when you drive around a parking lot because the gas engine is off...
