Well, I should've known when I first drove one that I'd end up with one. I'm the proud owner of an '05 Silver Prius with Package 6! Bought it here in Nashville @ Beaman Toyota.
Overall, the buying experience was pretty pleasant - no markup, other than a $249 processing fee they put on all vehicles. Paid sticker - there were literally people waiting to buy it if I didn't. (It had come in and had not been previously spoken for.)
Beaman has a pretty good reputation around here, so I felt comfortable going with them. I did spring for the extended warranty. It's by Toyota, 7 yr/100,000 miles bumper to bumpter, 0 deductible. Transferable and can be cancelled with a pro-rated refund. That was a grand.
Have been driving around, learning things. Got my Bluetooth phone paired, but it's erratic. It's a Verizon V710 Motorola. There is an upgraded firmware, so maybe that will help.
Next item - XM add-on.
Thanks for all I've learned.
No longer a wannabee!
