Is something wrong with me?

I have a friend who is in the market to buy a new Toyota truck so I went with him to the dealership to kill some time. And there it was and I liked it! I would never get rid of my Fit but.........

The Prius C in Hot Habanero!

The C is a nice looking car, but the Fit's interior is way better and it's much more fun to drive! I traded my Fit in for a Prius c last March and after a month I missed it so much I traded it in for my Fit back.

Yes, something wrong with you for sure. Prius C looks super cheap from the rear, those taillights do the car no favors. I see a ton of them every day and this is the first thing I notice, every time.

That front lip too... looks like lawn edging lip lol at least TRY and make it flow.

Were you the one who traded your Fit in and they still had it on the lot when you went back? If so, I have to ask something. What did they give you for your Fit and what did they charge you to buy it back? LOL

In regards to the Fits handling, I generally go easy on my cars and never really experience their full potential but last night I was feeling adventurous. I got off the highway at my typical 30-35ish into a cloverleaf off-ramp, but this time I took at near 55mph and she handled it well. I was impressed.

Of course I lost money, but I got 13000 when I initially traded it in and got stuck buying it back for 14500 but they did put brand new tires on it. Stupid move on my part but oh well. I was very pleased to be back in the Fit.

No laughing matter, it's an official term!

Toyota says plural of Prius is "Prii"

LOL

I really liked the Prius C I test drove while looking for my Mom's next car.

Ended up getting a 2012 anyway, my Dad and I agreed it was more fun to drive, although that's largely based on the 5MT vs. the CVT in the Prius.

It's not a bad car but unless your spine fits naturally into those Yaris seats you might want to jump for the Prius Regular. Also, the Regular has acceptable cargo and rear leg room. And better fuel economy. The C is for people who want a status symbol but haven't acquired sufficient status just yet :) .. this doesn't make it a bad car it's just not that competitive vs either the Regular or the Fit, depending on what your goal is (MPG or fun/utility)
