Is there any point where the opposing parties here will concede that this is an argument that won't be won? It takes a certain kind of person to buy a Prius, and that person isn't typically someone who would self-identify as an automobile enthusiast. Someone who would self-identify as an enthusiast is never going to pat a Prius owner on the back for their choice of transportation. One side will not make the other see the light. Give up!

Actually the imaginary war in your mind has already been "won" and by presenting facts not by pseudo-macho posturing and emotional outpours about "enthusiast cars" and what all else...blahblahblah. The Prius isn't a zoomy "enthusiast" car designed for men seeking a fix for their tender male egos, big deal. It's not designed to be, it's a comfortable sedan optimized for high fuel economy and low emissions. Duh.

Lol no, I was never involved in this thread. I'm just tired of the hatin. All I said is the Prius is butt ugly, and its the only point no one's argued yet. I just dont like seeing this turn into something you'd see on a Honda forum. We're more civil that that, folks.

Wow, I had no idea that clicking on this thread was mandatory for you, that sucks. I love the looks of the Priuses myself, it's a matter of opinion. I have been entirely civil by the way considering I'm dealing with the fiction and the fact-free cr@p flung like monkeys do by the Prius Hatin' crowd.

Yeah it's absurd that someone may click on a thread several pages long and give his 2 cents.

It is absurd if the complaint is that it's too long because he's making it even longer w/o adding anything substantive.

You're pretty great at not adding any new content yourself. Not saying I'm doing any different. But hey I say we aim for a solid 20 pages of useless crap. 16 just isn't enough!

You can't speak for everyone, just yourself. Big surprise huh?

Here's a good article about the 47 MPG Ford Fusion Hybrid.
