After shopping for a Prius for better
than a month, stopped into the Honda
dealer, drove it home that day for
about $5K less, and haven't regretted
it for a minute. Actual MPG doesn't
match EPA estimate, but that shouldn't
shock anyone. Still getting 35 mpg in
high Florida summer primarily
making "ant trips" of 2-5 miles. Over
the winter, consistently broke 40mpg.
Efficiency meter, though not entirely
accurate, helped me modify my driving
habits to maximize mileage. I can't
wait to trade in my pickup for a true
hybrid there too!
MPG meter, solid standard features set,
extremely quiet, long maintenance
110v power point (offered in GM's "mild
hybrid" pickup). More colors
available. Recharge battery when
engine is idling (not just on coast).
