    Went in for an oil change yesterday & came back with a green (literally) 2009 Toyota Prius. Love the back up camera, no key start, smart locks (just walk up to the car with the remote in your pocket) and the just over 50 mpg average in the first 120 miles.

    Not dissing you, but the Prius is a horrible attempt at a solution to the current problems we're having. It's an alright car on it's own right, but a lot of the owners are completely self-righteous about it and think the Prius is the savior to our nation.

    Congratulations on your purchase. Now take that monster to the drag strip and let it eat.

    What a wonderful example of broad generalization :help:

    I would prefer a self righteous Prius driver over a "I will drive what I want" Hummer H1 driver getting 7 MPG. COULD be just as obnoxious but I am not going to make that generalization. :D
  8. I like the car because it makes lots of people angry.

    Prius. :rolleyes:

    I have a rant always ready about them.
    But I'm afraid I will get banned because it can easily result in a flame war with a Prius owner.

    At least I realize my current car is polluting and unsafe to drive. :ninja:

    and your battery wont cost you 5grand to replace in 5 years. :bag:
  15. Is it just me, or does the 2009 Prius look like a taller and shorter (length wise) Lamborghini.
  16. Congrats on the new car.

  17. If you like it, grats.

    I couldn't own a Prius personally, not cool looking or fast enough for me.

    I want a Yaris. My neighbors will know it's a joke, and not assume that I lost my job.

    Watch out with those smart locks, though. You can get in your car and drive a few meters from home before the engine stops, to find you left your keys in front porch :p
  20. I'm glad you like your new car. Certainly it's a better alternative than a 5mpg SUV or other such nonsense. However, I think car manufacturers should be investing more money into the electric car and developing some decent batteries for it.
