    I just took delivery last night. Thank you to Dianne and her assistant Nathan over at Carson Toyota for making the car leasing experience wonderful again :) Second time getting a car from Dianne. She's the best!

    (JUST FYI, I GOT MY WINDOWS TINTED ON MY CAR A COUPLE DAYS AFTER I TOOK THESE PHOTOS. I WILL POST SOME UPDATED PICTURES SOON. IT LOOKS EVEN BETTER WITH THE DARKER WINDOWS.)

    So far my Prius C is getting way more than my other regular Prius' I had, haha!!! My 2010 Prius that I traded in was such a bust on MPG because I had those horrid 17" tires. Never again! I was lucky to get 42 MPG and that was a good day, mostly I hit 39 MPG, no good. My 2006 was better since I had 15" wheels. I remember I got about 45-47 average MPG.

    Just since last night my C is getting over 50!!!! :D

    Thanks, yeah I've never owned a red car before. I'm extremely picky on red colors cuz I prefer bright reds with orange undertones as opposed to more subdued reds with blue undertones.

    Absolutely Red fits the bill perfectly!!! It's such an awesome pure bright red. No blue tones whatsoever!

    So I wrote this in the troubleshooting section but I'm not sure if that area gets viewed too much...

    Little problem I seem to be experiencing with my Bluetooth. Although there is no delay, thank god, like I had with my 2010 Prius, when I used my phone in the car today, I notice that when a person is talking, there is a slight buzzing sound in the back of the voice. It seems like it's a speaker issue.

    Anyone having this problem? Or anyone know how I may correct the issue?

    I hope it's easily fixable.

    That is a perfect Red!! They had a red one on the lot when I bought mine but it was a level one and seemed super chincy inside. I went with the moonglow level 3 w moonroof. I have never owned a white car before either but it is very pretty especially when it sparkles under the light.

    Ahhhh, so I am not alone!! Mine does that to and it's annoying but I guess I can live with it. I was actually going to post this as well or talk to the dealer, please let me know if you find a solution and I'll do the same.

    Congrats!

    The 17s do tend to hurt mpg. Some people don't believe it but I'm the resident curmudgeon when it comes to mpg loss with larger wheels. ;)

    I responded to you in the other thread but I'll say it again here too. I am wondering if this is a common issue now on this car. If we both are experiencing this problem, most likely others are as well. I will definitely let you know if I find a solution.

    Anyone else have this problem with their bluetooth? I guess things can never be perfect. My 2010 had a delay when I'd say hello, I had to say it 3x before someone would hear me on the other end, and now this car has a buzzing noise. Oyyyy lol :rolleyes: :tsk:
