Hello all, I am going to buy a Prius. I am in no rush, in the research phase right now. Demographics ---------------- Job, RN Commute, 45-50 miles 3xweek hospital A, 2 miles 2xweek hospital B Traffic, slim, rural Iowa Hills, none on Commute A Current ride, 1996 Dodge Ram 1500, magnum V8 Truck uses 6 gallons to run 1 Hospital A commute, 15 mpg Annual Fuel cost, 3500 to 4000 easily I doubt a prius will save me much money, but I do want to reduce the number of times I have to fuel each week. Plus I just want something different. I will keep the truck to tow my small fishing boat, 35hp. (all day on 3 gallons, great for a boat) My main issue is I hate haggling. I have never bought a car from a store. Do prius cars sell much below sticker? I really hate this part most of all and reason why I have avoided dealerships. I do have great ficos and my credit union, Pen Fed, will give me a loan at 2% (1.5% current offer in my preapproval box, but 2% is norm). My debt to income ratio is low, all cars, house, etc paid off, only student loan installments have a balance. 5 major CCs, low utilization. Also, the prius C looks like something I might wait for, so with a new model they just go at sticker right?
