    Pete, since you are talking about the home charging station and the Leaf, I think you are referring to 2012 Prius Plugin. This thread is for the bigger Prius wagon without a plug.

    You may want to post over here.

    Bought a 2012 prius V --- shifting gears I feel in a Trance if you reverse you knob it forward--- if you wish to go ahead you Knob it back -- feels nice person backward to me -- then my garage door went up in the middle of the night and I don't know why -- the rear door is flimsy as hell compared to my last Hyundi I have to open it for the dog and I wish he could speak!! Rear license place rattles only screw holes at top -- More gadgets than the moon rocket has all the luury extras Rear camers picks up garage doojambs and makes reversing the 24th of july---:mad::eek::rolleyes::confused: If I had to do it all over I wouldn't:Cry::peep::boxing::help:

    Yes, D is down and R is up, just like any other vehicle.

    I really want a blind spot monitor and cross traffic alert. Does the Prius V have this? If not, will the 2013 have it? I know the BSM is available on the Camry.

    Nope and we don't know.

    Cross traffic is only on Ford, is it not?

    I've always been curious how the extra weight has an effect on the larger Prius. Are people really getting MPGs into the 30s?

    Yes a few get mpg in the high thirties but they are probably driving 80 mph all the time. Most get 42 mpg average.

    From the gov fuel economy site on a 2012 Prius v:

    And for mine the MPG is achievable in a 4 season climate without doing any special driving techniques.

    There are those who do much better (52), and some do spectacularly worse (32).
    Fuelly's graph shows a similar distribution based on 539 samples.
