Voila! as a votive to my vehemently vivacious family of 2+1, and to no longer be vilified by my wife as the vermin vested in vexing vacations with vicious rentals, vile public transit, and violently long walks, I am venerated, valiantly as a verified vendee of the Prius v. We've finally put money down on our first car and the whole family is anxious for the delivery, our 9 month old included (as verified by his sudden interest in being wide awake for hours at 4 am now every morning). We could only afford the basic package but it should be more than enough for us. Not sure if we got a good deal on the purchase or not, but it seems that the dealer we saw cut us some slack with a (modest?) discount of $1,500 (CAD) off asking and a 0% interest lease contract. This puts us low enough below budget to afford a few accessories I've vowed to still use transit as much as possible for work and drive the v only to make the outings with our baby boy, which is basically every outing aside from the commute to work, tolerably less squirmy. I hope the v is very bit as roomy, comfortable, and gas efficient as most on this forum would attest!
