    The High Priustess recently took away my brass knuckles, nunchucks and pepper spray.
    I've always hated going to car dealerships, and when I do go, I am prepared for battle. The hair on the back of my neck is standing up, my nostrils are flared, my upper lip taut.
    But that was before I discovered Priuschat, which led me to Dianne Whitmire at Carson Toyota here
    in Southern California.
    Within minutes of meeting Dianne and her excellent assistant, Nathan, I was calm and ready to do a deal.
    So in late September I purchased a sea glass pearl Prius III, and I love this car. And when in the future I buy another car, there will be only one call to make: to the High Priustess.
    Thanks, Dianne, for making the whole exercise run so smoothly.

    Both online and in person, Dianne is what you wished a car salesman was like.

    I know for a fact that my wife Margie is just a happy little hypermiler with her HyCam!
    Dianne is really great to work with, talk to, and make a good deal on a Prius, or HyCam!
    Happy Holidays Dianne!

    Pat & Margie Sullivan!

    Does she simply sell them for much less than others? That's all I care about.

    she's not the cheapest, she's the best. there's more to price and value than a cheap deal.

    Wow! Thank you, all. I'll admit to both laughing and feeling grateful!!
    Thank YOU! :)

    And, for the "it's all about price" guy? My pricing is very good. Very good indeed! So far this year, calendar year 2012, I have sold 829 vehicles. I'd say that one usually cannot sell that many cars in a little under a year without doing MANY things right -- including selling for less.

    i would have to agree with everyone. just got a prius v5 from her last week. could i have gotten it cheaper? probably. but i would rather have a root canal than go through another traditional car buying process and it may very well be in the point of diminishing returns. i was in and out of the dealership in an hour and in time to make it to my dinner appointment. :)

    You fly to LAX, buy the car from Dianne, pocket the savings, visit Disneyland and road trip it home with a new car!
