Prii are horrible cars. Has anyone ever driven one? It's amazing how awful they are. The only way to recreate the steering feel would be to duct tape a pillow onto your steering wheel and drive by the pillow. The brakes are horrible, the car is ugly and its dangerously slow.

Furthermore its overpriced, the only way to make up for how much of a premium you pay over a cheaper n/a 4 cylinder compact is to drive 15,000+ miles a year. But, if you're doing that, most likely you spend a lot of time on the highway, where a lot of the Prii's fuel saving advantage disappears .

Many owners also own the car because they feel its good for the environment because they are less dependent on oil and because the car is cleaner burning. While the car may be clean during the ownership stage of the product life cycle, the beginning and end of its product life cycle are not. The batteries that find their way into the Prius come with Nickel produced in mine factories that dump pollution into our sky and a far greater rate than a typical car or car part factory. The Prius is actually one of the dirtiest cars to produce. To take it a step further, what happens to the batteries once they expire a decade into the Prii's life? They go to landfills, 200lbs of battery acid dumped into the ground.

Anyone who wants to save money and help the environment should just looks at cheap 4cyl compacts like the Fiesta, Focus, Fit, Civic, 3, etc. They offer way more driving excitement and are much easier on the walllet.

When it comes down to it, the Prius is more like a Hummer than any other car; it's a ride for posers.

Yeah it's sad the truth behind cars like the Prius being environmentally friendly.

But in all seriousness, I might start riding a bicycle to school during nice days next year. The campus isn't that far away; maybe 2 miles.

Get some exercise + save money. But there are some crappy parts to it (smelling of sweat, helmet hair, finding a place to lock it up, etc)

Idk if people want to save the world so much and want something to get good gas mileage why not get a motorcycle or scooter for decent days?

I laugh every time I see a hybrid that looks like a shoe, or a beer can, or even an ugly f-cking car..


A buddy of mine seriously pisses on every Prius he sees.. Only when he's drunk though..

Assuming you get 20mpg, riding your bike to school (assuming 4 mile round trip 5 days a week) would save you a whopping $4 a week. The exercise is nice, but not driving just to save $4 isn't worth it IMO
