Fourth .... all Prii have traction control no matter where they reside or are sold.

I heard they got rid of the bladder for the Gen 3's. How big is the gas tank?

You can configure the alarms?! I wish I'd known that. I have headache issues, and those sounds drove me NUTS.

Not sure about the traffic light and the bump, as I was definitely braking there. However, I never got near the brake at the Stop sign. Something else was definitely going on there.
