    Here's a Prius specific TLA (three letter acronym) we should all start using in our postings...BRT

    It means Big Red Triangle...which is what shows up on the dash when your Prius is not 100% happy.

    I would say that Triangle of Death (ToD) is fairly popular and more descriptive of the feeling that the Prius owner has upon seeing that warning light appear.
