    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Pretty impressive. My wife inherited an old prius from her Dad when he passed away. Its one of the old ones that look like a Nissan Sentra. The car is insanely complicated and it took me a long time just to figure out how to work on it. That said, its been reliable and realistically gets around 50MPG, which with our commute is a good thing. Ya- I know people basically pass em' off as hippy cars, but what the hell- it works great.

    They are hippy cars, but they do work great.
    My neibor's wife has one and it has been a great car for them. She does almost all of her driving in-town, which is where a hybrid is ideal.

    Our carbon footprint compensation is a Camry Hybrid. I couldn't be more pleased with the car. (t is a night and day difference from the Prius in ride and quiet but not as good mileage, but it consistantly beats the mileage rating on the window sticker. A weekend out on the outerbanks will deliver over 40mph. Running down the Interstate at 70 the mileage drops to 36-37. It stays in that range in around town driving.

    They did a good job on this car.

    Pster, you're doing a great job on the carbon footprint as well, perhaps even deserving MORE appreciation! (LOL!)
