No its the smugness that comes out of some prius/hybrid owners that starts
these arguments. The way the Prius is priced its meant for "economy" but
here its not worth a brass razoo because there are better and cheaper cars
that has better economy and just as just as good to drive as a pryarse and
probably better. Sure hybrids are good in theory but here its as useful as
an elephant on skates.
And you have when the economy went crashing in the down in the states and
took everyone else down with it globally..
Sure Australia isn't perfect but fuck America isn't a picture of quality

[guffaw] Yeah I bet their Prius profits are friggin' enormous!
Also, oddly, it's always the "gas" mileage that the Prius-owners use to
justify the vehicle.
Here is Aus you can get a Toyota Camry with climate control and a great
stereo as well as more power and more room inside for over $0,000 less than
a base-model Prius.
Seeing as "gas" mileage is unimportant; what the blithering f#ck would you
want with the Hybrid?!!?
(By the way; I wouldn't buy the Camry either)

I drive a company-supplied vehicle, and my choice was either a Chevy
Malibu or a Toyota Prius.
THERE was a no-brainer.
