First, let me say this is my first posting on this forum and thanks to all who have shared and helped me to make my decision to buy a Prius c. I also own a 2009 Prius Touring Edition which was at one time my company provided leased car. For safety reasons, I was required to stop driving the car during the floor mat/recall nonsense and order a new, different car. I was however allowed to buy the Prius (as I am with any other leased vehicle due for replacement) and got a fantastic price. It is actually worth as much or more today than when I bought it in 2010. Anyway, I have two daughters now of driving age and needed another car. Went shopping and liked the Yaris and Corolla. Didn't know about the Prius c at the time I visited the dealership. I did some online shopping that evening and noted the Prius c, became interested in what I saw and read, both professional reviews and this forum. Took a test drive a few days later and was immediately convinced to buy one. I've had it for a month now and I'm very satisfied with the car. In most ways, I enjoy driving it more than the Prius Touring; more sporty feel, more responsive steering, lower seating position in the c, more comfortable seat, etc. (I'm 6'-0" tall). Now, for the Harley Davidson comments. I've been riding motorcycles since I was seven years old and have continuously owned a motorcycle since that time. I've owned numerous Japanese motorcycles until my first Harley purchase in 2004 and have owned five different Harley models. Having owned both numerous Japanese motorcycles and Harley Davidsons (and educated as an engineer involved with manufacturing quality management) I'm well versed in the subtle and not so subtle differences between Hondas, Yamahas and Harley Davidsons, some differences favoring the Japanese brands and some favoring Harley Davidsons. What I find interesting, humorous and annoying at times is that other non-Harley Davidson motorcycle owners bash Harley because they are too slow, too heavy, technologically deficient, etc. What these bashers don't understand is that discriminating customers buy vehicles (motorcycles, cars, boats, aircraft, bicycles) for a multitude of reasons. Certainly, most Harleys are not the fastest, smoothest, quietest, most technologically advanced, etc motorcycles out there. But that's not the reason many people, especially me, buy a Harley. I bought my Harleys because of there long heritage (110 years), style and design cues from the past, older technology traced back to the company's founding, the unique sound and feel, heavy duty design, build and finish quality, etc. I believe Harley's have more soul than other brands. Another anology is the Japanese Bullet Trains compared to an old steam locomotive. One is certainly faster, smoother, quieter and more efficient than the other, but honestly, which one would get the most attention and interest from the average person if both passed you by at a street crossing? Anyway, back to the Prius c. I've read many of the online reviews, some of which bashed the Prius c, specifically the Consumer Reports review. While I think they actually do get it at CR, the Prius c is not trying to pretend to be a BMW, a Corvette, a Rolls Royce or a Cadillac. It does an outstanding job of what it IS trying to do and was designed to be, which is a high quality, long life, low cost, efficient, fun to drive, nicely designed automobile. That's it. So if your expectations are clearly and honestly defined going in to any vehicle purchase, you will then be able to sort out the different choices out there, make an intelligent and informed decision, and be a satisfied customer. So there you go. Who would have thunk a Toyota Prius c and a Harley Davidson motorcycle could have anything in common? I love my Prius c II and I love my Harley Davidson 2004 FLHR Road King because both of them do and are what I want them and expect them to be!
