    And loving it! Keyless entry, BT that allows my iPhone to start playing my music where I left off, how the interior lights come on slowly as I walk up to the driver side door, the variety of readouts on my driving and maximum mpg.

    Sure there may have been cheaper cars today with some of the same features - but since my last new car these features are the stuff I dreamed of having.

    Still waiting on my first full tank of gas to see the mpg that I get in pure local driving; but don't think I will be unhappy.

    Sweet. I remember having to prematurely fill my prius the first time because it took tooooo long! Now if I don't get over 400miles before I fill, I am depressed.

    Struggling here not to fill-up at close to 280 miles on my first in the first few days of 150 miles hwy driving and wanting to take advantage of my Sunco cents off on 2/29! So used to doing 280 miles between 14 gallon fill-ups on my old 2003 Subaru Baja; may do it for old times sake to make the choice of the Prius even better. :)
