Hi there all: Thought I'd pop in and say hello. We bought a 2010 black Prius III yesterday on a bit of a whim to replace my 2000 Jeep Cherokee that had almost 145,000 miles racked up. So far, over about 70 miles, I'm averaging about 29 MPG which is great compared to my Jeep which got about 12 MPG. I've tried the EV and ECO modes, but they are both way to slow for me. That's ok though, I've more than doubled my gas mileage, so I'm not too worried about it. Overall I'm pretty happy with the car. It's just my commuter, but its comfortable and pretty fun to drive if you really stomp on the pedal. In any case, thanks for having a great forum here. I'll read up on some fun things to do to the car. So far I'm only planning on adding a proper horn to it, probably a Stebel which I use with my motorcycles. All the best.
