It's a tossup, but the 2006 models will be released in about five weeks.
Stop Mad Cowboy Disease: Impeach the son of a Bush.
If you do a lot of stop and go during your commute (any of the bridges
or passes) you may find the Prius has 2 or 3 times better milage than
your Accord. It loves slow and go.
If you check all the dealers within driving range, you are likely to find
a car today. I have met 3 people this month who did that and found one in
stock at a dealer within 50 miles of their house. Expect to pay MSRP in
I have the 2002 model, 36,000 miles and have paid nothing for
maintenance. :) The early models had a 3 year, 36000 mile pre-paid
maintenance included in the price. Actually, I did replace the tires
and paid for that.
