    Hello,

    I am new to the group - I live in Pleasant Hill and just brought home my Magnetic Gray #5. I traded in a Civic because it wasn't getting nearly what the sticker said it would for MPG. SO happy with my new friend!

    Reliable Prius service in the Bay area?

    Hi folks, new to the Bay area, reside in Redwood city. 10000 mile service is due. Had 5000 mile service done at SF Toyota--not very impressed with them. They seem very busy to answer questions...didn't check air in my tires either. Any suggestions on personable and reliable Prius service shops? Thanks much!

    Hi I'm new to the group here in SF and am not yet a Prius owner but have made the decision to become one. Still shopping around and any help would be appreciated in looking at 3 main things:

    (1) Best price on a 2008 pkg #6
    (2) Lease vs. Buy
    (3) Aftermarket Modifications (e.g rims / wheels, sunroof)

    Happy to be here!

    Hi All,

    This is my first official post as a member :). I have a 2007 Touring package 6 with a sunroof, heated seats and tinted windows. I just ordered a few upgrades from Costal Tech, including auto door locks and the lock pick 3 package. I can't wait to install and chat about them soon. Anyways just wanted to say hi to my fellow greenies in the Bay Area.

    Mike

    Hello,

    I live in Concord and just brought home my Classic Silver Metallic Touring #6. I have owned a 2003, 2005 and now the 2008 Prius and have to say the car is improved in soo many ways.

    Cheers!

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the SF Bay group and thought I'd say a quick hello. I do not own a Prius, however, I am a hybrid mechanic at a hybrid shop in SF.

    Best,

    Michou

    Hello from Palo Alto!

    I have garaged my 2003 Corvette (averaged 22mpg for my daily 50 mile commute, now out of warranty after 100k miles) and after my first week in my 2008 Prius Touring I am very happy with my 54.2mpg using the pulse/glide technique. I wonder what my Corvette mileage would be using that technique?

    welcome to the group. You could probably gain a few MPG by using a similar technique with your corvette.

    Hello. I am new to Prius Chat and I live in the Bay Area. Can you tell me if the Prius Club is active here? Do they have any club events or meetings and if so are there any in the near future?

    Looking for Used Prius and good independent Prius Mechanic

    Hi all,

    I live in Santa Cruz, own a 2008 Touring and wish to own another Prius. We need two cars, as it turns out. Does anyone know where a decent used Prius is to be found? We want a 2006 or thereabouts. We are looking for a fair, brilliant, and honest independent Prius mechanic.

    Any tips?
