I agree with everything you've written. I'm torn between waiting for the
plug-in or buying now so my daughter can have my 2005. Just the other day
she said "I really look good in your Prius, dad."

IMO, most of the colors suck. Ordered a silver one last month (6-8
month waiting list here). Turned down an offer of a gray one last week
after deciding I'd rather drive my 1995 Geo Prizm (aka rebranded
Corolla) for another 8 months than have an ugly gray car for the next
10 or 15 years.
When I first went to the dealer to buy my Prius, there was a shiny new
silver one sitting right by the door, and I thought it looked quite
nice, but the dealer insisted on selling it to the next guy on the
list instead of me. I've since seen a very nice looking red Corolla
that I assume was the same color available in 2009 Prius, so I may buy
one of those if offered before the silver one arrives.
Otherwise, the colors are at best boring (black, white) and at worst
nauseating. (Saw one of the "Pine" ones the other day - what were they

May not work for you, but this NY dealer is desperate to get rid of two:
"Westbury Toyota managed to get our hands on 2 fully loaded Prius’
again. The last time we sent out this email they were both sold before
the end of the day. Please understand that this is an extremely well
sought after vehicle, and they most likely will not be here tomorrow.
Here is the info on both of the Prius’:
2009 – Gray Touring model – Fully loaded inc. Navigation and Leather.
2009 – Red Luxury model – Fully loaded inc. Navigation and Leather.
If you are still interested in the Prius, please reply to this email or
call our internet sales team at 866-618-8240."
