My bf and I have been talking about getting a Prius for a while now. We commute into Washington DC for work every day and easily drive 500 miles a week. Yesterday we decided to take the plunge and I started calling around. Found a black one in Maryland so we drove up there to look at it. Ended up buying it, a Black package 2 got it for $22,959. Our salesman was great, the finance guy LIED his butt off trying to rip us off on the interest rate but luckily with good credit + common sense we were able to come out on top. So far I love the car, I was so impressed with how its not just like every other econobox out there plus the gas mileage bonus. Its really a nice car. I love sports cars and my last 2 cars were Mustangs....so its different, but I definately enjoy the Prius. So far after about 130 miles we are averaging 47 mpg. Not too shabby! Thats about it for now, I hope to learn some good info from this forum!
