      Halfway through installing a DEFA SafeStart Engine Block Heater. Now, where does the cable run?

      Here's some background to help explain how the Toyota Prius fits in the Australian car market. Prices in Feb 2012 (in AUD)
      Prius "Base" $34,990
      Prius i-Tech $45,990
      On-road costs add about $2,800.
      BTW, those prices were $5000 and $7500 higher before April 2011!

      Honda Insight VTi $29,990 on-road
      Honda Insight VTi-L $33,490 on-road
      Australia has a FTA with Thailand, where many of Honda's cars for Australia are built.

      Toyota Australia also makes a Hybrid Camry for $36,990 and Hybrid Camry Luxury for $39,990. The Australian-built Hybrid Camry has minor differences to the US model.

      As at February 2012 average fuel prices per litre are:
      ULP 1.45 (91 RON) $5.50 Gallon (US)
      PULP 1.53 (95 RON) $5.80 Gallon (US)
      Diesel 1.50 $5.69 Gallon (US)
      LPG 0.76
      98 RON 1.58 $5.99 Gallon (US)

      If this all seems expensive... it is.
      BTW the average wage for all workers in Australia is AUD52,000 p.a. (It's about AUD67,000 for full-time workers.)

        I got mine (Base) $31,500 driveaway during fleet price (Toyotathon) offer between July - Aug. And it does seems to be the best time to purchase a car. I jumped on it as this is the first time Toyota has special pricing for Prius.

        I got a even better offer from carshark.com.au at $30,850, wish I waited just a little longer =)

    Bought a second-hand May 2009 (known as the 2010 on this forum) NVW30 in Wildfire (mica red) in January 2012.
    Is this the best car I've ever owned? In many ways, it is the most rewarding.
