    Why did Consumer Reports give the Gen III "good" reliability instead of the "above average rating" that Gen II received? Have there been troubles with Gen III? They don't seem to rate it as high, but don't seem to have any bad things to say. ????

    Probably the so called "brake" issue, along with the Run-a-way Prius skit from Saturday Night Live.
