    VERY HAPPY OWNER as of last night ...

    Husband and I are both tall and i'm not thin... at 5'10 and 6'11 we both fit nicely in the v... plenty of cabin height..ive got great leg room ..hubby could use a little more...we had previoulsy ordered the extenders for under the seat of my 09 Touring to give us more leg room ...had them removed and going to see about using them on the v as well.

    Plenty of power, stops on a dime, getting 43mpg in the 212 miles driven since last night... while it was not fun to say good bye to my Silver Pine Mica 09 Touring with 110k miles on her....when the test drive was over, was smiling from ear to ear.

    Fun to drive, feel very safe on the road and LOVE SITTING UP HIGHER...

    Professionally appreciate the extra back seat room for clients. The vehicle was in the dealership less than a day...had been calling around and was told by one dealership that the v was not for sale as they would not be getting another one for weeks and wanted people to be able to sit in and see first hand.

    Truly LOVING my vehicle:dance:and VERY GRATEFUL FOR PRIUS CHAT:love:

    Hooray!!! Congratulations! Thanks for the feedback. I am excited how the V accomodates different sized drivers! I am 5'2 and the driver's seat fit like a glove with a few adjustments!

    Just picked my Blizzard Pearl touring model (Canada). Really love it so far - really comfortable to drive, smooth, quiet, lots of pep. Lots of space carry a walker for my mother all the time and fits much better in the v than in my 2010. Can't wait to drive it some more tomorrow!:p

    CONGRATULATIONS. Now you can get your NAR GREEN designation :). My wife is also going to use it for her real estate clients. She's been GREEN and now so is the car.

    Thanks for sharing, we love our new V as well. I was thinking the V would be a great car for a Realtor due to the huge back seat and super MPGs.

    I hear ya. There is a ton of leg room in the back, and so far I'm averaging 40mpg+ according to the onboard computer...

    It reminds me a lot of our old Mazda5 (also a white pearl), but better put together, much quieter, and way better gas mileage...

    Picked up my v with the touring and technology package in blizzard pearl almost 3 weeks ago. Still at the love-in stage. I'm 6'5" and feel comfortable enough after having several mini vans. The prius v shares the garage with a nissan cube which is one of the other small cars with which I feel very comfortable. Love the technology and fuel efficiency. Have over 300 kilometers on it and still have 2/3 of a tank of fuel.
