After 30 years of driving four cylinder wheezing death traps and getting no credit for it and after repeatedly having the government trying to force me into smaller and smaller cars I said the heck with it.

I decided to buy this car because if Hillary or Obam gets elected they will probably ban v 8 engines for average citizens so this is probably my last chance to own one.

That said, I get fantastic gas mileage for a car of this power…28 mpg last week.

It gets OK mileage, not the best. It’s comfortable, and I’ve never had a minute’s trouble with it. It’s easy to drive, easy to maneuver.

I drive a 1971 Ford F-250 with a 390ci V8 and a 1150cfm Holly carb.. I run 400+hp and happy to burn tires down the highway! Gas should go down not up! If you read your Bible the world is going to end someday, so why not use what we have and enjoy it?! Sorry but I don’t think THE PEOPLE are going to let the GOVERNMENT go on and on.
Sorry but no hybrid truck is going to haul 2-5,000 lbs of stuff and go out 4x4ing, then run around town and up the highway on cell.

With limited public transit in my small midwestern city, the Prius offered the best fuel economy (average 47 mpg for the past 8,000 mi). The reason I purchased the Prius: my thought is that the market may have small blips of up and down, but ultimately fuel prices are only going to go up. I purchased the Prius used because I want an all-electric or plug-in hybrid. The used Prius didn’t saddle me with sticker shock and enables me to save up for a more ideal car which should come online in 2-3 years.

I have yet to have any major maintenance problems with it, and hope to drive it into the ground.
