So, the car quest continues. This weekend we test drove a Toyota Yaris and a Toyota Prius. The Prius was like a spaceship, and it was eco-friendly and it was disturbingly roomy for Mini owners. So, here's the breakdown:
Seats 5 10K less than the Prius
49mpg 10K less than the Prius
ecological 10K less than the Prius
The Yaris also has the name going for it. Gary can't remember the name.
"Ellen, do you think the Ya...Ya...Ya-Ya car - what's the name again?"
(I scheme momentarily.) "Yu-rus."
"No! It was Ya something!"
So what turned Gary off the Toyota Urine today was the discovery that it doesn't have a tachometer. Well, it does if you get the S model, which has the same engine etc, except for an extra 1500 you get a tachometer. This injustice has him so outraged that Toyota is almost dead to him now and he's talking about the soul-less Honda Seizure again.
