Drove one for the last week. Put about 2000 miles on it, now seriously thinking of buying one - at least *I* am.

Positives:
  • Electric-side? It recharges itself.
  • Averaged between 70-80 MPG with fuel.
  • Once it gets going, it has a lot of pep, tight steering
  • VERY 'roomy' 4-door wagon
 
Negatives:
  • When in 'Reverse', it issues a gurly-version of the same 'warning beep'  one hears from a forklift operating in 'Reverse'.
  • At first,  it wasn't enough of a 'muscle car' for the MissusDWolf - she asked me when did I 'drop the soap' and started wearing dresses...then she told me to 'bend over'Cry. She warmed up to it when she figured out the dash, saw the numbers were real, and got a pedicure with the money originally set aside for gas...but she wouldn't drive it.  
  • If one is in the car on a date with their own Missus, be aware the car can be distracting when not running. It manages its electrical system for a few moments after being shut down and makes bodily-sounding noises. In other words, the damned thing 'farted' and I got blamed. 

I've been 'saved'! I'm a born-again Prius fan...until the FCX comes out!
