  •  Prius owner here.... (1+ / 0-)

    ....I bought it used when I was driving all over Illinois doing locum tenens work.  I got over double the MPG of my Ford Ranger.  Now that I'm in Florida working regular jobs, the savings in fuel isn't as dramatic but I do have a reliable car I like.  

    I had my "midlife crisis" car back when I was 30, when I purchased a Mazda Miata new off the lot in 1990.  That car lasted over 275,000 miles.  The Ranger went almost that far, and I'm expecting the Prius to top the Miata.   Loved the Miata, which was my favorite car of all time, but the Prius is a close second.
