Toyota Prius

I’ve done my fair share of Prius bashing here on Car of the Month and maybe it’s time to analyze why I do so. It’s not that it is a bad car rather quite the contrary. Toyota spent a fortune on research and development of the Prius and it was under public scrutiny from the get go. And, being a new technology the Hybrid had to work and work well, as Toyota’s reputation was on the line. So, when the half battery, half engined little car rolled out of showroom floors across America onto open roads it proved it was reliable. It also got decent fuel economy as intended.
