Well, I've had my heart set on a used 2010 Prius. The one I'm nearly ready to get, 2010 model II with 44,000 miles, would cost roughly $300 a month which includes tax and interest for 60 months. I just got back from a local Chevy dealership and they are running a lease special on their remaining 2012 Volt's. I can get a Volt premium (leather, heated seats, Bose sound system) for $315 (taxes included) a month for 24 months with 15k a year. Down payment is around $670 which includes the first payment, plate, doc fee, and tax on the rebate amount. The Prius seems awesome in my opinion and after 5 years I would have the car paid off and something for my money. Also, I thought that the interior of the Prius was more roomy then that of the Volt. Yet I can get a Volt, an extremely nice vehicle, for nearly the same price for 2 years. Which way would you guys go? Thanks!
