I test drove a Toyota Prius yesterday. When I excited the dealership I made sure there was no traffic, but wanted to punch the pedal to see what kind of acceleration I could get with a total of four people in the car. I guess I was going pretty slow because some dude in a Grand Am passed me and flipped me the bird. I later used the higher performance option and that seemed to make it work much better.
Overall I really liked the car. Other than the styling being a bit blah and sacrificing power for fuel economy, one major drawback are some blind spots in the back.
I noticed all the sticker prices were removed from all the Prius(s), which makes me think they are inflating the price.
I keep coming back to the Hyundai Sonata, and would actually like to test drive their hybrid version.
The doctor tells me I’ve got a slight case of bronchitis.
