    2016 Prius Two - ?? not sure yet.. but most likely will be an owner soon.
    2005 Acura RL - my love, comfortable.. was with her for over 10 years but starting to have issues in our relationship.
    2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe - was my dream car but wasn't comfortable. Broke up in 2 months. Was a lesson to always research / test drive before buying.
    2004 Acura TSX - just graduated and saw money for the first time
    2002 Honda Civic EX - college days

    1997 VW Passat TDI (Now the wife's)

    Loved those 800+ mile tanks. The wife's (same model) died and she finally said we needed a second functional vehicle. Since VW decided to be dumb (cheating emissions) I couldn't settle for something that got the same as my nearly 20yr old car... it had to be better in the mileage dept. The only choice that did that, at a reasonable price (and is the mileage champ) and without long distance range issues, was the 2016 Prius (Three).

    So I bought my first new vehicle. (y)

    I had a 2012 VW Passat SEL TDI. Not a lot of tech but would go forever on a tank of gas (33/44 mpg). It was also long. I kept hitting curbs when turning. Wife has a 2014 Prius C. I got used to driving it for a couple of years and wanted something quieter than the TDI. Blessed be the 2016 Prius. Happy camper!

    Uninteresting, I guess - the car we swapped out was a 2005 Gen2 Prius, so I guess we're consistent. At present, a 2012 i-MiEV sits in the garage between its charging station and the Prius.

    But hey, DBLXX . . .

    Okay, in all seriousness, one of these things is very much not like the others.

    I say this despite great affection for tiny Mitsubishis (just came home in the i-MiEV from dining out) - given the rest of the fleet, what on earth is the Mirage for? One of the kids?

    Thanks for saying that. I was slightly thinking about looking into the Audi.

    Congratulations! I too am a recent first time Prius owner.

    You have found the right place (PriusChat.com). This "community" of owners really adds to the experience in a very positive way!

    Enjoy your new ride... and welcome! (y)

    You WIN!

    Gosh, you had (have) a serious Ferrari addiction.

    You know, there's probably a 12-step-program for that! ;)

    I'm currently in Houston Texas, I'm told " You know you are in Texas, you need a pick up truck". I think there is a 12 step program for the pick up truck, but I'm reserving it.

    My year had a lot of recalls, but it was the first year of the model, I'm sure other years might've been better. It had a lot of small things that weren't recalls that I had to pay for but it seemed to have a lot of problems for a pretty low mileage car. Beyond that, the backseat was tiny and it was a little sluggish on the get go. The only thing I liked about Audi vs Toyota was the service lobby, which was quiet and had free tea :)

    The Mercedes was an AMG and I needed something practical for my 120 mile RT commute and my car sits at the airport (EWR) 35 weeks a year.

    Wound up really hating both the Merc and the Mitsu.
