When at the red light people behind you sees that you are driving a Prius and moves to your right to over take you ( thinking that you are driving a slow accelerating car ), what you do is easy, push on your pwr mode button and watch how big their eyes get on your rear mirror when the light turns green. Other times, I love to see avg consumption around 60 mpg which she never disappoints me.
Love my Prius!
2013 Toyota PriusRobin Haney - Lincoln, CA10/31/2016
Economical, spacious, beautiful, efficient design and just plain fun to drive. It's a very reliable car that is definitely more than just a pretty face. This is my second Prius. The only reason I traded in my 2009 was that the age of the hybrid battery became a concern for me.
2012 Toyota PriusKarl L - Los Angeles, CA10/16/2016
I owned a hand-me-down 2005 Prius (first generation) for years and never had any problems with it. Shame on me for not doing sufficient research into the differences between the first and second generation Prii. It is a COMPLETELY different car. Do EXTENSIVE test drives with this car on several types of surfaces. The visibility in this car is so bad it feels unsafe: major blindspots. Virtually non-existent suspension; hits every bump like it was a pothole. Rattles like crazy, especially on rough road and at high speeds. Cheap plastic interior components. Poor turning radius. Deafening road noise. Worst of all, it gets nowhere near the gas mileage they claim; I have never gotten more than 40/45 miles on the highway, and never broken 30 city.
