    Anybody considering one? I'd like to at least take a test drive. I commute 70 miles a day so this might be just the thing for me.... opinions?

    Would be mighty nice to not have to fill up the gas tank for a month, or atleast every week. lol. Actually very sharp looking, like the colors.

    think I'll definitely test drive it. I have never liked hybrids because of the high cost of battery replacement, however, this one has a msrp low enough that the gas mileage improvement actually covers the increased msrp over a iQ/yaris/elantra/w/e

    I've never actually known anyone to need a battery replacement... my dad's 07 Prius is still doing just fine.
    Yes, I know what rice is, so that's how I can say that thing is riced out. They CGI'd every single thing they could think of to stock on there.

    to be honest ive never paid attention to what the price was. i just pump and go and scream when i get the credit card bill. im more worried about remembering to put the right type of gas for my modes of transportation.

    I like that you darkened the edges, so that you can only see the car.
