Prius wtf!!

Has anyone had a encounter with a prius?? I know its ridiculous but every time I run into a prius they drive like turtles. And when a passing lane comes up they think they are driving a corvette or something. I ran into one the other day at a street light, mistake 1 he tries to get me out of the hole and fails then when we get to a passing lane he floors it and tries to pass me. Are all sloyota owners this way??. It just seems like hybrid owners think they are better than non hybrid owners. Maybe its where I live. Kauai HI

Pruis owners are tools. They think they are helping the envirnment by getting their cars. Yet it has been proven that the Pruis has a higher carbon footprint, due to manufactoring, parts, and shipping, then the typical car.

They discussed it on Top Gear and there is a study that was done. I'll search for it and post if I find.

I've passed quite a few Prius's's at 100+ on the two lane blacktop. That 40-120 windup sure is fun.

i will admit they have a good amount of torque, from the electric part of the engine. plus how the heck are you supposed to be an offensive driver in one of those?

A Prius only gets what, 51mpg? I've clocked between 37-39mpg several times on the 2.2 Ecotec in my four door '03 Grand Am. And I haven't even opened up the intake or exhaust yet.

As a side note, my dad had a 91 Ford Festiva L (1.3L 4cyl, 5 speed hatchback) that was getting him 48mpg after pulling the cat & muffler. With 160,000 miles on it.
