    Took the Prius first time to work today. On entering the parking decided to use the ev only mode for parking.. drove like 4 sores up .. parked the car ... and while exiting i think i smelled the burning wire.. popped the hud ... rechecked inside.. no smells .. hmm strange .. Anybody had some issues with running ev only mode in multistore parking lots ? Will try to ride some more in parking lot after work ... Is there any possibility that it is from frame wire .. that goes under the car from battery to get to much current and heat up ? I think there is no connections in there, it is one pease from battery to inverter ?

    It looks more like a pickup truck to me like the Gen 2 Pruck although the Gen 2 design looked better IMHO.

    Ok, whoever owns this Prius owes us all some serious photos of before and after. Some details on how it was done, etc. From the photo it looks like a fantastic job!

    I have a son who will soon be 16, and I want to buy him a prius 2011. I have a 2004 prius, but for kids all the best is how do you think I'll make the right decision about buying such a car to him? What types of insurance policies exist for minors and how does it work? Thank you.

    Hi my car in 2012, and before this was 2003 and I can say that the new machine is much better and less likely to break. Very cool of course gift to his son, probably he is a fine fellow), I can advise you only what is better to take with 2 doors, since it will be easier, but I think you will make the right choice. With regard to insurance, I have been working as an insurance broker for many years and I can advise you to read this site. сheapautoinsuranсe.сom How much I would not look for different sites, on this you will find the most current insurance and information about them.
    Good luck!

    Road trip today, got a lucky 67.5 MPG, distance 53.3 miles @ 55mph. Said the additional package 4 Prius w/solar panel, sunroof & HUD would net lesser MPG because it's heavier in weight and few inches higher, without the 2 downward crest on roof. No winds either, this package 4 was just slow lane-ing it on HWY 99 CA.
    Most likely the drive result was from the ATF and engine oil change at the SF meet up couple weeks ago much thanks to Ray for helping me out :)
