Figured I'd hop on and do the obligatory new owner first post. I'm officially the proud owner of a new 2011 Winter Grey Prius III (or is it 'Three'? I'm not sure what the preferred numerical script is for the different generations) with solar and nav. I traded in a 2006 F250 Super Duty Crew Cab (13mpg) and what had become my fun daily driver, a 2007 Pontiac Solstice (28mpg). My main reason for going with the Prius was simply miles per gallon. Living on the eastern shore of Maryland and working in Baltimore means a 250+ mile daily commute. Despite mpg being my main reason, I have to say that I'm so far extremely impressed with all the amenities and creature comforts the Prius offers. The navigation has been leaps and bounds better than my old Garmin. The factory audio, while not competition-level, is still very impressive with the added ability to sync up to Bluetooth, iPod, or use the 4-disc changer. The ride is also extremely smooth with almost no road or cabin noise whatsoever. I've even got plenty of trunk space for a mini-compressor, emergency road/zombie kits, and groceries. I never pictured myself as anything but a truck guy, but looking over the display screen and seeing an estimated 45-50mpg definitely makes me happy with my decision. I also wanted to thank the folks here for running and chatting on the forum. I've already researched a ton of things (circulating air from door handle is normal, ordering Wet Okole seat covers tomorrow, fog light kits take 2 hours to install), and hope to continue to read great information and chat with the "locals".
