Why do people have such a problem with the Prius? Cars are designed for utility, not fashion. You sound like a bunch of girls.

Yep. It has no purpose.
Its slow and ugly, has terrible cargo space for its class, AND it gets crappy MPG compared to normal clean diesels and even some gas powered cars...

A Prius has more gadgets in it than any of my cars and it looks like a shoe.

I don't ever plan on buying a new car, but I'll take the engine and batteries out of a Prius and put em to better use any day.

Because the Prius is a joke. It is overpriced and designed to attract the smug and pretentious fools that think purchasing a "green" vehicle like the Toyota Prius will actually do good for the so called bad environment. The car isn't BAD, but it does what a car is supposed to do. But it executes it horribly, dangerously and laughably. good fuel mileage does in no way equal "green" or environmentally friendly.

Long story short, if you buy a Prius thinking you're doing something good...that's why we hate you AND the ******* Prius.

I would like to see you drive a prius on an oil field. Plus the build and disposal of the hybrid batteries is more detrimental to the environment than most gasoline engines in their entire life cycles. It also doesn't help that these batteries only last a couple years before needing to be replaced.
the more you know

Actually the big bad batteries you're talking about have 10 year warranties and last at least 8 years. They're not environmentally any better, but they're not really environmentally much worse. You save a few sheckles when you get an average of 45 miles per gallon. They're pretty roomy and comfy inside, they have a fairly nice sound system, they can fit 5 and some cargo.

Downsides, they're kind of unwieldy to park, they have a lot of downsides, you get assholes with ****** trucks gaffawing at your car.

"Cars are designed for utility, not fashion"

You just answered your own question...

Priuses (prii?) have gas engines as well as electric ones still, are heavy, slow, terrible handling and performing, etc.etc.etc...

If you want an environmentally friendly car, ride a bike. A Prius is for people who want to "be good to the environment", even though it really isnt that good... (look at everything having to do with the batteries through mining to production to disposal)

"If you want an environmentally friendly car, ride a bike" ******* lol.

As for the "Priuses are for people who want to be 'environmentally friendly'"********, that's not entirely true asshole.

Some people want an automobile that doesn't chug gasoline, in fact most people I know that own Priuses are like that. There are a lot of those idiotic smug assholes who think they're doing any favors to the environment. Every community is bound to have assholes though.

Then drive a Cruze? 42mpg Hwy without a hulking battery, and it looks like a normal sedan.

That's not really my point, my point was more along the lines of "There are more reasons other than being a smug asshole to drive a Prius"

also the 2013 Cruze has EPA MPG at 26 City Driving and 38 Highway Driving whereas the Prius of the same year has 53 City Driving and 46 Highway Driving.

If you're looking for style, you're definitely not going to be looking at the Prius first.
