    200 miles and one week later,

    YES, so happy.
    I still have over a half tank, when normally I fill up every week!

    200 miles and I'm happier every single day. It's really everything I want and need in a practical package. Perfect balance of initial price/style/features and fuel economy.

    EDIT : LOL dig4dirt and I have the same mileage :)

    Two and a half weeks, 290 miles, and I'm loving it. The mpgs keep ticking slowly upward. Don't know if it's the car breaking it, my learning how to drive it, or the change in weather, but it's a wonderful thing to see :) My last car had about the same size gas tank (maybe slightly bigger), and I might get 200 miles out of it before having to fill up. I still have a ways to go before my first fill up in this one!

    I'm so happy with it that after only 800 miles, I just placed a call into the dealer this morning looking to buy a second one. :)

    1,500 miles so far and love it. I do miss the days of just driving though, seems like I am driving like an old lady trying to get better mpgs and I cannot stop.

    Two weeks and I'm super happy. Love the mileage, the way it looks, the seat, the bluetooth, lots of fun to drive and so easy to park. In two weeks, according to the c, I've saved $244 over my previous SUV beast. It's like a free lunch everyday. ;)

    1400 miles and someone anonymous left a nice dent in my front passenger fender. It's going to cost me $500 for my deductible!

    Other than that, I'm pleased as punch! Love to drive that car. Haven't even sat in the 2010 Prius since I bought this C.

    Off-topic, but:

    What the heck happened to fenders, bumpers. They used to fend off impacts, take small bumps, with a plain rubber leading edge, backed up up by a resilient beam, mounted on hydraulically damped pistons. Now they're glorified fairings, fragile moneypits.

    I totally agree with you! They used to be able to take a hit, but now, just about anything can put a decent crease in your fender line! In an effort to lighten up the vehicles and cut production costs, auto manufacturers have really cut back on the metal gauge. But now, most of the safety features are on the inside of the car. My first Prius took a 20 MPH rear impact and was considered totaled- and the airbag didn't even go off!

    In 1981 Ronald Reagen became President, in 1982 the 5 MPH bumper rule was dropped.

    It could be co-incidence, honest. Well, maybe, sorta.
