    Hello everyone!

    This is my first post and I must say I am very excited. I can officially say I am owner of a brand new 2011 Black Prius III with Navigation aka "Miss Lola D." (yes! I named my car :p).

    Driving the Prius is a completely different experience than that of driving my old car ('02 Acura), but I must say I love it. Every time I get in, I find something new and exciting; it has not fail to amaze me. Plus - I LOVE NEW CAR SMELL - (for some reason it smells like chocolate :)..I know... weird)

    One of the coolest function is the no key unlock and starter - no more searching to the bottom of my huge bag for it. AND WOW - IT'S SUPER QUIET!

    Big thanks to PriusChat.com and all it's members, you all have been a great resources! I look forward to learning more about what this mean green machine can do!

    Congrats! I think black cars are great for urban dwellers. Beautiful when clean, even. (Terrible for country people like me as they show everything.)

    I name my cars too! My three week old Prius is named 'Vera' because the 'Lane Keep Assist' keeps me from veering into the other lane. Woot!

    Welcome. I know how exciting it is...

    Hi Dubs! I really intend on keeping this car clean =)... well the best that I can at least.

    Vera is an awesome name, very clever. "Lane Keep Assist"? What is that? Is this a real function and is it available on the '11 models?

    Me and Ruby Sue want to welcome you and Lola D to PriusChat. Congrats on your new Prius. Enjoy the high MPG, technology and low-emissions.

    I absolutely love the "no key" FOB.
