2008 Toyota Prius

Two things I really dislike about this car:
- You can't drive and use the nav system at the same time: the car has to be in park. I don't need to be babysat by Toyota (feels a little 'big brother' to me), and when someone is in the passenger seat trying to use navigation it's really frustrating.
- when the package says "Satellite ready" it actually means that you have to spend another $600 to get the Satellite antenna installed. They don't tell you this until you call six months later trying to figure out why your XM isn't working when you try to activate it.
I have enjoyed driving this car immensely, I love it more than I thought I would and it's a great city car. I'm a photographer and my photo gear fits perfectly in the hatch trunk. It drives beautifully and I'm glad I bought it even with the gas prices going down.
