"My spouse and I just purchased 2 new 2012 Toyota Prius..."
My spouse and I just purchased 2 new 2012 Toyota Prius plug-ins, having pre-ordered through Toyota online last fall, and working through Brown Toyota, our local dealership, for processing and delivery.
We traded in a 2005 Prius (purchased in the fall of 2004 from Brown Toyota) with 88K for one of the new plug-ins, and a 1998 Honda Accord with 123K, for the other new plug-in. We got a fair trade-in--Kelly Blue Book value--for both, and a fair price on the new plug-ins. Both Neal Lobban and Brown Toyota were cordial and efficient throughout the process.
So far, with three weeks of driving and 450 plus miles on the first plug-in, with trips of 10 to 30 miles and plugging in at home before each trip, we have averaged 103 MPG, and have used less than half of the original tank of gas. We have only had the second plug-in for a few days, but so far performance seems comparable.
In short, we are pleased with the new plug-ins, and with the service we have received from Neal Lobban and Brown Toyota.
