Meet 5 Real People who LOVE their Toyota Prius!
After driving the Prius for a few days, I wondered who in my network drives a Prius. I put out a Facebook/Twitter status to find out. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I immediately received comments from these 5 very happy Prius owners! Who doesn’t love to meet real people? -Nicole
Describe what you love most about your Prius: In three years of owning a Prius, I honestly appreciated each trip to the pump and how little gas was costing me. It truly never got old.
Favorite Prius Memory: The nod of approval most people would give me after discovering I had purchased a Prius (which was still quite uncommon when I purchased it back in 2005.)
Describe what you love most about your Prius: It’s a tie: I love being able to see how efficient my driving is with the score you get on your dashboard. I also love being able to play my Pandora radio throughout the car via my iPhone!
Favorite Prius Memory: Seeing the reactions of all of our neighbors when we first brought the Prius home was pretty entertaining. Since we live near Detroit, most people in our area only buy American made cars. You’d have thought we brought home a Mercedes or an pet alien when we pulled into the neighborhood!
Describe what you love most about your Prius: I love my Prius because she has never let me down. I can count on her for amazing gas mileage. I’ve used her to help move and the hatchback allows for lots of space for boxes. I have taken many a roadtrip in my Prius and I never feel cramped or crowded. My 6 foot husband doesn’t complain about room either. In the six years since I purchased my Prius, I haven’t needed any unusual repairs or maintenance. I have never been happier with a vehicle and I will buy another Prius when this one is done.
My favorite Prius memory would have to be the first time I took my car to the repair shop. To make sense of this, I should explain. Previously, I owned a Volkswagen Jetta that gave me so many problems. My worst car memory was driving my Jetta to Minnesota and my cerpentean belt ripped through completely. It was a nightmare that caused all kinds of damage to the car. The first time I took my Prius to the repair shop, I asked about the condition of the cerpentean belt. I was overjoyed to hear that the Prius is made with a cerpentean chain which will never need replacing. It was true love ever since.
