Oh, that stupid thing. The guy is clearly an a**.

One might be able to make reasonable critical comments about the Prius but that piece of crap doesn't make one.

I'd have to say that this comment is disappointing since it is evidence of bias. The reviewer is an a** and would be what ever country he came from.

Well, at least that comment has some chance of being funny.

I'm with hyp. Have a sense of humor! After all the guy can't even drive on the correct side of the road, so who can take him seriously!



I like the line about the little children who don't hear the car coming.

As much fun as that was, I wonder how he managed to get such poor mileage from the Prius. Over there an imperial "gallon" is 1.25x a US "gallon," so if one were to normally get 50mpg in a Prius here, it should be 62.5mpg there. 45mpg is downright embarrassing.
