Hi all, this is my first post, though I've been following this website for a while. A few weekends back I rented a Prius and took it on a camping trip. I wrote up a little review an posted it on my travel blog at SoCalTraveler.com. Just thought you all might be interested in my impressions, so if you get a chance take a look! I'd be very interested to hear everybody's feedback. I did really enjoy driving the Prius, but I can't seem to come to terms with replacing my 3-year-old Mazda 3, which is a great car. The Prius would be a lot more fun on my commute and quite a bit more practical (I have the 3 sedan with a 5-speed), but it's hard to justify to my frugal sensibilities replacing a reliable, almost paid for car with a new one and a bunch more debt. But still, I see them driving around every day and always think, "I want one!" Anyway, thanks for your time if you decide to read my little review.
