    Where is my promised Tundra Hybrid? I would even settle for a Tacoma Hybrid!

    Ditto. The range is only enough for commuting and most weekend errands but a trip to the local mountains or out to the suburbs will require some gas usage.

    I'm still over half a tank left from the original dealer tank. I'm hoping to make it to Easter before needing a refuel (already missed the chance to refuel on Mar 31 before the new carbon tax increase came into effect.... and there'll be another jump in price when they switch to summer blend)

    Prime seems to be popular car out here in Santa Cruz. I’ve already seen 6 since yesterday. Too bad they all look fairly clean and mine is filthy.


    iPad ?

    Finally saw my second Prime in the "wild". This time closer to home at the local Sonic. I keep meaning to go park next to it to confuse people because it's the same color as mine.

    Fair number of Primes around here; they seem to outnumber regular 4th Gen Prius. That's reflected in local dealership inventory, typically a couple of Prius, and 4~6 Primes.

    We're on the right. Or was it the left...

    Hope you won't need parts for that expected Kona; neighbor has waited months for parts from that company.

    I'd use an electric sewing machine if I had problems with threads derailing! Maybe we should just sew this one up?! I'll quit railing now, sew I don't get into any more trouble!
    Choo choo!!

    Right :). Your Touring doesn’t have the solar roof! (That and your licence plate frame is white). Scared yet? :cool:

    LOL! Its funny that you put Tornado on there because we had a Tornado Warning the other day and I looked at my husband and told him it better not happen! My car is stored in the garage ALL the time if there is any type of storm. LOL

    Saw my 3rd Prime today (since Nov of 2016). It was on Hwy 2 between Syracuse, Ne and Lincoln, Ne going west. I was going east. I had to look back to see the curved window just to make sure. Same color as mine. Many of you prob see them daily since we have 2017, 18, 19, and 20s now out and about. But here they are still rare as hens teeth.

    Still rare here, too. I saw one Friday at a big Mall. First one I'd seen in ages.

    Nice color choice for the Prime :).

    When I’m at work, one of my staff members had the grey Prime, so it looks similar to your pic, only we’re next to one another charging(y).

    Yesterday I noticed another silver prime parked a few cars over. 15 minutes later I watched a mom and her two kids try to get into my car.
