    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.

    Its interesting to look at this sticky post that was primarily v speculation at the time. Of course no one really guessed engine flaws would be the real problem of this generation. The overseas v had a third row and lithium hv batteries but was called the alpha or plus in those markets.

    The v introduced the hybrid suv form factor whose ride, back seat and cargo space were very similar to rav4s and crvs, even today. The v's enhanced ac and pitch and bounce control added comfort, the larger brakes and tires lasted for unheard of miles, the sliding and reclining rear seats became a taxi passenger favorite all over the world, overseas models pioneered lithium hv batteries in a volume production vehicle with great results while the advanced tech packages of the v and the standard Prius lead to almost universal adaption across the industry.

    A semi cult following has emerged in Facebook v groups, mostly populated by soccer mom second and third owners. Space and economy slightly better than a new rav4 hybrid for 1/4 the price.

    If only they had spent a little more time on the piston rings, inverter and brake booster. At least Toyota stood behind the last two.
