I'm profoundly embarrassed :)


A pedantic, hypocritical *lazy* wanker.

It would seem his time on usenet has taught him nothing about ettiquete, as
he felt it necessary to re-post the entire message just to add his little
toss-off post.


Yeah, me too :)

It would be STUPID to buy a car that's almost double the money for the
same interior space, unless the cheaper one only got three miles to the
gallon or something.

US Corolla specs are here:

US Prius specs are here:

http://www.edmunds.com/new/2009/toyota/prius/101042875/specs.html


the Prius has significantly more rear seat room overall, and also has
larger luggage space, than the Corolla.

I know.  I've driven both.  The difference shows up BIG time when you
simply go and sit in them, side by side.


Edmunds shows the Corolla now selling at about US$4,000 for a 2009
model.  That makes the Prius, at US$3,000, about 55% more expensive.  
But if you need a bigger car that seats everyone much more easily, what
else are you going to do?

Fact:  some families can't make do with a Corolla, and you couldn't get
me into a deathtrap Kia of any kind.

Your smug attitude is WAY WORSE than the WORST Pius owner in Los Angeles.

like Corolla or Prius, neither are big enough for that role.
BTW I drive a Toyota Hilux dual cab 3.0lt Turbo diesel which is bigger,
much more versatile as far as carrying loads and people and uses only
slightly more fuel than either a Corolla or a Prius and it cost about
the same as a Prius.

Define "large".

I never said "large family".  I simply said, "family".  Mine has four
members, and they are VERY comfortable inside a Prius and are not
comfortable inside a Corolla.
