    ...that I'd not only buy a Toyota, but a Prius.

    Taking delivery later this week on a Prius Prime Advanced. Left over 2018, and a ton of money off thanks to incentives, both from Toyota and state/feds.

    Getting out of an Explorer that just didn't make sense anymore (did it ever really?) Planning plenty of daily commuting and longer roadtrips.

    Looking forward to learning a lot and contributing more--pictures to come later this week!

    Welcome and bravo, enjoy the (I'm going through 20,000 at 93 mpg overall average) saved money, being where you are you might consiter getting 4 studded Nokians for winters.

    Thanks! Snows are a must, though studs are pretty uncommon around these parts.

    Definitely going to put on some winter rubber come next winter--Nokian might just be the brand, too.

    Welcome and congratulations. I've had my 2017 Premium now for four days. Still a lot to learn, but this is far and away the best car I've owned in about 45 years of driving. (y)

    I drove in the dark (and fog) for the first time this morning. Holy cow!!! Amazing headlights compared to my previous cars.

    Going from your Explorer to the Prime will be like night and day!

    Thanks! Yes, it will be an adjustment... but it's time. Onward and upward!
