Prius rocks for emf protection
By Yssa on
2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We were not crazy about the design (little more room in the trunk please! - and low rear view visibility) BUT if you are concerned about exposing your kiddies in the back seat to high - quite arguably harmful levels -of electromagnetic radiation and you want a hybrid, then Prius is the car for you. We measure very safe levels in all parts of the car - with only slight raise (several seconds) while breaking. We found very unsafe levels in other hybrid cars we tried and that's why we got a Prius. Toyota obviously has taken precautions to minimize a health risk - even one not generally talked about. Wow. How often can you say that about a big company! Way to go Toyota!
Great mileage. Great EMF protection. Great safety features. What's not to like.
Come on people. I know you can design an equally mileage savvy car with more trunk room. And actually being able to see out that hatchback would be nice.
