20. The Prius is much smaller than my Mustang and I wouldn't
Edited on Sun May-27-07 12:06 PM by Clark2008
own a Toyota if they paid me.

Sorry. I don't like Japanese cars. Never have.

In any case, my Mustang is mid-sized. The Prius is on the larger side of small.

P.S. My Mustang also cost about $4,000 - $5,000 less than a Prius. I couldn't afford one even if I liked it. When are they going to make hybrids more reasonable in price?
