VEHICLE STORY

RIP 3.22.19 Ever wonder what it would be like to completely remove all the adrenaline and excitement from driving a fast and powerful car? Drive a Prius and you'll know what that's like.   Purchased in late 2014 mainly for the HOV access for my Bay Area commutes and for it's hatchback, the Plug-In Prius provides easy access and ample cargo space for my three Great Pyrenees dogs.   Custom bone color leather seats were added to complete the Blizzard look as Pyrmobile #2.  Didn't buy this to be cool, bought this because it's a Prius and they're pretty much the most reliable thing you can find in the market and most importantly carpool lane access during my rush hour commutes.  But that's only till 2019, then I'll have to get a full electric. It's a terrible car to drive if you love driving cars with any power. This thing gives me heart palpitations when I try to go up the hills with more than 2 people in the car.

The first oil change in my opinion.

I found out there's different grades of synthetic; if it makes you feel better, i did go full synthetic :D

Apparently there are fake carpool stickers and they're in high demand. Sure glad I got it when i did. It makes the commute a lot eaiser.

Well, our claim to environmental responsibility is that we recycle used parts on our old jalopies. :)

[]Kit Lau

Hey, anything helps! The way I see it, I'd rather be passing people in traffic through the carpool lane than getting stuck bumper to bumper, muahhaha!

[]Kit Lau

Thank you! I appreciate it. Too bad majority of the people on Wheelwell loves hating on my plug-in Prius. Oh well, someone's gotta be the carbon offset haha.

[]Nathanael Jones

Ohhh, man. I totally get the HOV lane reasoning and reliability.
