    I have heard some people say that when they look at the Prius c on dealer lots, it looks great from some angles, but it looks like an econo car from other angles. When I looked at them at the dealer, I thought they looked great from some angles and good from other angles but I do understand how some could see it as "too small LOOKING."

    Well, I have GREAT news! I was driving on the highway a few days ago and I saw a Prius c on the highway, and it looked GREAT !!!!!!!! I slowly drove by it, then several car lengths ahead, then moved to the right lane and merged into the slower traffic, then waited for the Prius c to pass me. It literally looked GREAT on the road !!! :cool:

    My first C siting was while walking my dog in my own neighborhood about a week ago... probably less than an hour after talking to a friend about who would see the first one out and about. Once I realized that my car wasn't getting stolen (it was the same color but didn't have the moonroof) I was pretty impressed.

    Saw a metallic gray one yesterday for the first time in San Diego (other than my own of course). It was going into a Costco gas station. My wife and I talked about how many times we thought that car had filled up at that point. I think because of the shape of the rare lights, the car is pretty noticeable even from far away.

    I am considering buying a Prius c but was wondering how good it is on long trips. Can anyone give me an opinion on that? I am torn between the Prius and Lexus C200h. More luxury with the Lexus, but more money and less mileage. But the Lexus seems more comfortable.

    Hey! That's the same dealership I got my Gen III from. I sat in a Metallic Gray C II, and that was the only one they had at the time. This COULD the very same car that I sat in LOL.

    BTW keep your eyes on the road! :)

    I usually got about 57 MPG on 35 -55mph road and 48MPG on 72mph highway.


    I was thinking getting the Lexus C200h, but I went to the Prius C. lol
