We owned a Prius for 12 years and liked it.I think maybe they drive a Prius and LIKE it.
And that was twenty years ago. Today you have a range of choices from pretty petty to lotsa room to bery basic. The Prime can keep up with my Mazda 3 if empty, which is pretty cool.It's a lousy sports car (the go-pedal makes it sound like you stomped on a kitten) -- but it is one of the best household-support-vehicles I've ever had the privilege of owning. There are very few vehicles which can compete with it, even now.
What was the result of the poll! Don't leave us hanging, man.My wife conducted a poll with her friends because she liked it but was embarrassed to say she did. I instantly liked and have no problem putting myself out there. Her approach is either shyness or political genius.
If I read another post "fishing" for abuse over whether or not he wears the pants in his household I am going to punch myself in the nose.I currently have the CT preordered because the specs are too good to pass up. Price, range, stainless steel body, large interior to travel w/ family, camping, autopilot, and Supercharger network all considered obvious pros. However, I am waiting to see a hopefully less hideous design (if this triggers you please go bark up another tree) before I'd actually commit to buying. And yes, I understand the functionality of the straight line bends of the stainless to reduce cost, as well as the cybertruck aesthetic. When I say "redesign" I am well aware this thing won't ever look like a traditional truck, but here's the deal......There is no way my wife would ever let us get one w/ the current look. Doesn't matter how good the specs are, this will be sitting in our driveway and neither of us would want such a hideous design being promenaded in front of our neighbors. And yes, I get that no matter what having an unpainted stainless steel body will always get attention.
I am looking forward to the CT update coming next quarter. 3% smaller size, flatter side angle, mirrors?, windshield wiper?. I would like to see what the actual rims look like (not with the hubcaps). I really hope there is an extra bend in the tailgate (or a complete redesign), man that tailgate looks bad. I do think some minor changes could make it much palatable.
Is there anyone else who feels the same way or am I not as a loyal fanboy as the rest of the group?
I agree and disagree.Frankly, my wife doesn’t like it. I don’t care.
For years whenever I questioned her purchases — really, how many different dish drainers do we need to buy and discard because all of a sudden you not don’t like it? — she would reply, “It’s my money.”
She started to complain about the looks and I replied, “Well, I love it and it’s my money.” Haven’t heard her talk about it again. Best $100 I’ve spent.
