thanks for the info! Still looking ... Any suggestions?

Henry, thanks so much for the information. I am just starting my search for a new car, and I THINK I want a Prius, but I haven't test driven one yet... still doing internet research. 2 yrs ago when I got my Passat lease, I was interested in the Prius, but the local Toyota dealer didn't have one I could test drive, didn't have anyone on staff who knew anything about it, and was taking orders as they were backordered for 2 months! I didn't like the sounds of any of that as it sounded to me like there'd be little to no service. Now, it seems that there are more Priuses around, and I really want one again!

I don't know much about cars (torque, horsepower at different rpm's etc) except I like to drive 'em and want a green one! I thought from looking I'm so glad I found this site!!! If you were just starting your research, what are the one or two places you'd go to compare?

My partner and I currently have a 2001 Volkswagen Passat and a 1993 Isuzu Pickup. I am considering all options. Right now my dream is to get rid of both the Passat and the truck and have 2 of the greenest vehicles around. We've thought of 2 Priuses (sp?), 1 Prius and 1 Insight, etc.

I believe we have 14 or 16 months left on the Passat. It was our first lease, and we were very naive about mileage. We're already way over, so we can't just turn it back in...

I wrote a local dealership to ask if I could drive one around for the weekend to determine if it's the car I want.

By the way, I don't think "Unavailable" means the option is unavailable, but that the information was unavailable to them. That's my guess.

Oh, I also want to get a stereo that plays MP3 CDs.

Any suggestions you all can give me on how to go about my research, get rid of the other 2 vehicles, etc. would be great... thanks!!
