Just separating the Prius facts from fiction guys. Don't try going all Ford Focus Forum now that your fictions have been exposed as BS. Get a grip indeed.

Go hold hands with the rest of the prius owners and sing cumbaya... toodaloo to your bad self
(was gonna say tata, but personally I think the tata nano even outclasses the prius)
Sure, you posted "facts" like where you claimed the 2013 Fiesta and Focus fuel economy numbers were 40 MPG when they're actually 33 for the SFE model (and lower for the non super fuel economy models). Meanwhile the 2013 Prius is rated at 50 MPG.

I don't think there is anything left to say in here. I think it may be time for a mod to lock it.

Of course, lock it down immediately, why expose you Prius haters to more truths and facts than you can possibly deal with at one time.

= you:

p.s. I love the new Ford C-Max hybrid which is based on a Focus chassis and built at the only North American assembly plant to assemble the five current Focus related products: the Focus, the Focus ST, the C-Max Hybrid, the C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid and the Focus Electric.

It's already been 14 pages of 2 groups of guys jerking each other off over how great the prius is and how great the focus/fiesta/cmax are in comparison. You're all just repeating each other. There really isn't anything else to say.

I don't have any burning desire to step into this back and forth Prius love/hate that has been festering here for 134 posts. I did, however, want to commend Ford on their new advertising for the C-Max Hybrid (which was kind of the original point of this thread). I've gotten a chuckle out of the TV commercials they are currently running; even if they do play on stereotypes that apparently really grate on current/past Prius owners if this thread is any indication.

Actually only one side has jerking themselves off and it hasn't been the Prius team.

The solution is clear, stop regurgitating fossilized old myths and ignorant prejudices onto the board regarding hybrids in general and the Prius in particular and you won't get clobbered by the facts. We don't want to hear your defeated whining on the subject anymore than you do.

What's not a myth is how awful the Prius is as a whole.

Electricity and batteries are just not good for the environment and it turns normal people into pricks who think they're saving the world.
I don't care how many MPG it gets, it feels cheap and drives like a hospital bed. In my eyes it is not a good value and should not exist.

Toyota has not built a good car, they've just built a car and used clever marketing to sell it.

Nailed it. I'm surprised it's managed to survive for this long.
