    I just made an appointment to test drive a Gen 3 Prius 5 and noticed at the last minute that it had dual tail pipes off the rear. Is that legit? Couldn't that hurt the engine??? or affect Gas mileage?

    Another red flag? The Prius logo is gone from the back and replaced with a Lexus one???

    Thinking maybe not this car...

    If you’re worried about purchasing a non-stock car, then avoid it if it bothers you. A replaced badge and an exhaust won’t hurt anything except for your peace of mind
