This car [Prius] is the most fun I have had since my first car!!! (Twenty-five years ago). I have had two entirely trouble free years! It is such a joy to be less dependent on petroleum. With gasoline and food costing more, and the uncertainty in the economy, it is such a joy to have a thrifty dependable car that is so comfortable and quiet! It cost a little more (had to pay full sticker price) and I did have to wait to get exactly what I wanted (three months), and yet I would gladly do it again! Well worth it!
