At least in the United States, all Prius's are imported with at least
one of the 'packages' AFAIK.

Two years ago I received a base Prius--no package, no nothin'.  Had to
be ordered special, took 4 months to come on the boat from Japan.

Doesn't have an AUX plugin to the stereo, NOTHING.

But it does have cruise control.

I'm guessing they all have cruise control, because they ALL have what
*my* car came with as a 2007 model.

I only know what Toyota says:  It's a package option on the standard Prius,
standard on the Touring model.  Take the link I posted.  That is precisely
what they say and it certainly confirms what the OP said about adding a
third-party cruise.  Perhaps Toyota has a misprint.

They've switched things around.  Mine has everything Package One is
listed with, except for alloy wheels.  Two years ago, that wasn't
Package One in my area.

Remember, each regional distributor does his own thing.

I was under the impression a business, any business, was obligated to offer
product at the advertised price.  I tried a few zip codes and the product
was consistently offered at that price.  If you can't buy a 2009 Prius w/o
options for $2750.00 plus state and local  taxes then what the heck?  Are
they giving the FTC a wedgie?  From what I read, the OP's link to a 3rd
party cruise, along with his testimonial, may be of value to anyone who
purchases the base model.
