    I'm very active on my other car forum and I've learned an invaluable amount about my car, so I figured this would only be right that I join to learn about my new car.

    I just picked up a 2012 Prius Three and so far I extremely happy with it, especially after getting 11-13 mpg in my other car.

    I'm happy to be here and I look forward to learning as much as I can from everyone.

    Thanks,

    Welcome and congratulations on your new car. Just drive it for a while to get used to it and then come back here with questions.

    I bet your wallet went, "OMG... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU." Wow... 11-13 mpg... That must be relief to almost triple or quadruple your fuel economy.

    Imagine the reverse -- you have your Prius, but fuel is now $16 a gallon.

    You have joined the many who put their families first.
    Pay for all this gas to Look Macho at the expense of my family or Get a Prius and spend the money on vacation or entertainment for the kids.

    You chose wisely my friend!!

    Thank you everyone. That is exactly correct. I have a heavily modified cobra mustang that is basically a toy but I have to keep it parked for the sake of my family. Of course I can afford to drive it, its just not economically sound to commute in it.

    And now that I have my second child on the way and a wife that stresses safety and security of driving a reliable car so I made the decision.

    After driving for over a week now, I couldn't be happier. I use to think that they were just eco boxes but when I'm in it I feel like I'm getting the greatest bang for my buck and it has all the creature features I could ever ask for.

    I love this car.

    It's kinda nice being able to drive and not wonder if the noise you just heard was detonation or a suspension component coming loose or..... I've been there. ;)

    It's more entertaining to drive with someone who has never been in a hybrid car, you come to a stop and watch them go, "Did the engine just die?"
