    So, how bad was that? And, how old and how many miles?

    I have no idea. I'd suggest you go to the Prius forum for those answers. Face it. You like the car. I don't dislike the car at all - just the fact that some of the owners seem to feel compelled to drive in a goofy fashion that disturbs the normal flow of traffic and which is in my opinion rude and inconsiderate of other drivers. You don't agree. That's fine with me. I don't really have much of a dog in the fight - I know of one Prius in Brewster County and the lady who drives it is very nice and doesn't drive like a goof!

    As I said - I don't dislike the car. I put a couple of hundred miles on Voni's aunt's prius up in Washington a few summers ago. And I rode with Aunt Viv who in her 80s was more aggressive than I am. And where we live I don't see many hyper milers. But when I do see one I think he or she is a goof! And rude!

    Many people think driving the speed limit is rude and inconsiderate, that everyone should be 20 over the speed limit. Who cares what they think?

    Which of course has absolutely nothing to do with a driver driving a car of whatever make/model who begins to slow down by coasting two blocks before the upcoming stop sign, or who accelerates at a snails pace from a stop, or even up a freeway entrance ramp. Go back and read the first few posts in this thread about the behavior I am calling "goofy" and rude!

    Last time I checked, doing the speed limit was legal. Imagine the nerve of someone sticking to the speed limit! It's un-American!

    By the way, I don't hold up traffic, and never have: I do 58 indicated on a two-lane 55 mph road where passing is limited, and the speed limit on Interstates where anyone can go around me.

    Again, more Prius hate: get over it!

    My Prius is 8 years old and the only battery I have replaced is the 12-volt used to boot up the computer. It's been a fine car.

    So you are one of those who races to red lights and stop signs. Figures.

    You live in a sparsely inhabited place in Texas. I can't imagine you spend much time being inconvenienced by Prius drivers. Your nearest traffic light is probably 30 miles from your house. I can't believe all the whining in this thread: I have never been inconvenienced or held up by another Prius driver, ever, and I live in New York, land of high gasoline prices and where there tend to more Prius on the road. This entire thread is nonsense.

    It seems fashionable to bash Prius drivers, which is what this thread is all about. I mean, come on a major threat (title of this thread)? To what?

    Prius hate???? Silly you. I commented on an attitude not a car. Good for you doing 58 and not holding up traffic; atta boy. I hope you maintain a similar behavior in an 80 MPH zone or is that the point at which the "who cares what they think" attitude kicks in?


    Harry, your thin skin is making you an irresistible focal point.

    Well, Harry,

    This where we must part ways.

    I have been. However, I can't get too mad at the lovely woman that decided to marry me.
