    Upbeat, on the whole. I did not notice glaring errors.

    I thought it was interesting that they gave him a c Three to test. I wanted to get his impression of Softex upholstery on the Four. Also, there was no critique on Entune. I do like this writer's reviews and I agreed with his comments. I think the writers who bag on the C's excelleration probably are testing the car in the eco mode. Like Healy, I just use the normal mode and still get great mileage.

    Much more level-headed review that than the CR review. That guy is kind of funny too.

    Darn! Reading CR's review I thought I must have gotten a specially rigged C 2 with better handling and comfort. Now with this review I see I just got a normal Prius C...;)

    Saw this review as well, and thought it was a good counter to the CR review.

    Wonder what is up with CR and their reviews of late....
