What's so great about this is that it's a Prius, which replaces the car that was originally to become mine until it slid into a fire hydrant during horrible weather conditons.<p>We just got it today and bypassed the waiting list, but paid a mark-up of $170 on a loaded model.<p>Therefore, i have no idea if the EPA's numbers are possible to achieve.

the question is though is this going to be your car, i understand it replaces a car that was to be yours, but does this mean this car is to be yours or the "older" car is?

It's up to you, but I personally would've taken the Suzuki
