- gas mileage of course! I love the rear backup cheat andmy blue tooth as it is the law to no cell

Well it looks like i don't like the car but really i love it. After wanting a Lexus 350 RX well i seattled for a Pruis. -hum step down eh?- but the leg room in the back is great to haul elder and handicapped around which is a plus. Even the front has nice leg space and i don't feel like i am riding the ground like my other car. Lets not talk about the funny steering wheel but yes you get use to it quickly. The head room is nice as i am long waisted. Love the rear viewer. the sound of the radio , blue tooth is wonderful as it is the law in our state if we drive and talk. From the first ride i did 49 miles to gallon and i do travel alot.
Remember i said i loved the Lexus? well i bet i can put the lexus side molding on to protect it from other cars rude careless door openers -the doors are long so lots of room of in and out with ease. Oh yes a Bra will be bought as the hood is at a angle i bet i will get rock flys from the street.
One does have to have a honest mechanic i suspect to not try and charge you for this and that i do believe. Our newspaper warned us . Other then that I see many goverment and city cars turning to them for thier work cars. This in itself must say something!
I got no discount as they are to popular and it was the full MSRP but i didn't have to pay state taxes as it is a GREEN car. Yippie! and with all the safety things it is cheaper in insurance.
I have researched and the only times i have heard of battery being replaced is when it has been in a acident. I asked my insurance and they said they had one that some idiot took up in the mountains and it rolled. -i am the one one whom called that client a idiot FYI-
I rank it just good in value as it is spendy and about ten more thousand more then a car without hybred but then i am a Lexus fan so i am willing to spend.
Well I bought the cloth seats and i can see later they will have to be covered as i have seen thicker cloth...hum there is the Lexus thing again...and the faux suede on the door sides i have seen in other cars wear.
One might buy a cargo supporter as well. I see a good thing in them.
Over all i love the car and I don't care if i look like the rest.
The sound or lack of it is calming...the drive is great...the push on the button to turn the car on is odd but fun and i feel like i am in a space age car, Watch out world hear i come!
Honest i never thought i would settle for anything less then my beloved Lexus!
