    Other than driving a rental Prius, I've never owned one until now. I pick up my little 2012 Prius c Three tomorrow after the Blizzak snow tires are installed. I'm delighted to have a Prius and mildly terrified that I will be driving such a small vehicle after driving a minivan for 20 or so years. I think I got a good buy -- the Honda dealer took this car in trade and offered it at $14,588. It has the moon roof and alloy wheels. I was going to get a Two due to budget constraints, so am happy I was able to get the Three for a price below KBB value. I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone! I'm in CT, which is why I made sure the snow tires were part of the deal.

    Congrats and enjoy your C! There are some perks on the three trim level that are really nice having. This is a great forum with lots of knowledgeable folks on here ready to answer questions.

    Exactly the same year and trim level that I have! My wife has a Mazda minivan which I take once in a while, and I'd *much* rather be driving my Prius.

    Welcome! and best of luck with your new C. Sounds like you got a great deal. I kept our minivan (Mazda MPV) as a beater, but a C is now my daily driver and I couldn't be happier. I had owned little cars long ago, so if that's not true for you there may be a bigger adjustment.
