    Hey everyone. I am a recent convert to the church of Prius. I recently purchased a new 2011 Prius and after driving it for about a month my wife and I traded in her gas guzzler for another one. I look forward to meeting some new people here and also learning a lot about the Prius

    Welcome To PC - I went through the same thing. We were so impressed, purchased a GEN 3 in 2010.

    Haha yeah I know. Everybody thought I was nuts when I got it but then when I told them I was getting 50mpg right out of the box they pretty much shut up. Then the things like "oh wait until you have to spend thousands on a new battery" started to come in. Then I said that my father-in-law has an all original Gen 1 with over 200,000 miles on it.
