I bought this car off a private party mainly because of the carpool lane stickers it had. We live in CA, and these are like gold; the state hasn't issued anymore for this year so if you buy new you aren't guaranteed a sticker. Anyway, we also got the car for it's fuel efficiency; we average about 38-40 mpg in combined city/highway driving. The Prius gets better mileage due to its increased reliance on the electric motor, but I think the Honda looks better and is actually quite fun to drive. We added an Eclipse navigation w/upgraded stereo receiver that rocks. We also tinted the windows to keep it cooler in the summer (and it looks cool too!) For a small car, has a decent amount of room.
