It gets good gas mileage. Cool. It costs more units of energy to create a new prius, than is lost in the MPG of driving a 10yo 4cyl civic instead. Of course, if you bought it used, it is not more wasteful under your ownership, only the person whose market forces dictated the building of the car in the first place. YMMV Oh, and wait till the stop/start feature breaks while going 80mph on the freeway.


I hate the Prius, I hate everything it is and what it "stands" for (the faux-eco movement).

ding ding ding

I bought it for a great price. I will enjoy all the really cool features for a couple years along with amazing fuel economy. I will sell at a minimum loss if any at all. I could give a crap what it takes to make one or how wasteful it is LOL

The "eco movement" can kiss my butt.

You added to demand, which keeps the price of used Prii up, which makes more people buy new ones.

Sorry, buying used doesn't stop that.

Besides turbo diesel > hybrid. Because trubo.

I saw a few years back someone swapped an Echo engine (thats right, Echo engine) into a Prius, because it makes 80hp instead of 70, and set the hybrid land speed record at 130mph.

So 18psi,
TURBO PRIUS! DO IT!

I thought the 'V' was the new supersized one.

And there's FIVE generations now? I only know of 3, and the first one didn't sell here, the one that looked more like the old Echo instead of a the Prius-as-we-know-it.

Did I mention how painful they are to look at? I mean when I see one, I have to avert my gaze.

I heard you can (Toyota can) do **** to the computer to make it release all its torques, and they will get pretty quick. Although Id imagine its probably pretty rough on the batteries, among other things.

Maybe put rockets on the roof?
