    Hi all!

    Finally have a chance to post in the newbie forum. I traded in my 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi for a Pearl Blizzard Prius v Three. Or did I!? My wife drives a 2003 Highlander and I've noticed that I have only driven the new Prius once a week since we got it in early march.

    Sneaky move on my wife's part. But other than that, glad to be a Prius v owner. No more $100+ fillups on a weekly basis for a 26 gallong tank that got me 315 miles when full!

    Cheers,
    Ray

    Set your alarm 5 min earlier than hers every morning.... and enjoy your Prius :D:D

    Luckily my wife is kind of a technophobe and is scared of my Prius- cause if she starts driving it- I fear there's no putting that genie back in the bottle.

    Congrats on the V and on beating the just announced price increase on the V. Your timing was good!:)

    Congratulations.

    I have to admit I'm relieved that your title question was simply sarcasm.

    Given Toyota's "Fun With Names" within the Prius family, I was 1/2 afraid that somebody HAD bought a Prius and wasn't really sure what Prius they had bought.

    My geeky husband is so enamored with my Prius 4 that I don't get to drive it much on the weekend :cool: He never cared to drive any car I owned before this. :D
