That's it from now on I am going to type all of my replies in Word
and paste them to the Yahoo post box. I have lost more than one
batch of typing because the Yahoo page got changed before I clicked
Anywho I am sorry for replying to this post after 2 months but I saw
the Jeremy Clarkson NHW11 and NHW20 reviews on YouTube yesterday and
have to say I am appalled by his complete and utter hatred for the
Prius. I am now convinced that he automatically hates any car that
won't do 0-60 in less than 6 seconds and that won't do 200MPH. The
word emissions seems to be missing from his dictionary because he
said that the car doesn't have any strong points and he suggested
current diesel models instead.
The only remotely valid point that he made as far as I can tell was
that low speed electric only mode is so quiet that kids would run out
in the road in front of you, but then again that is why you should be
paying extra attention and cover the horn when driving through
I may be extra sore because I am already biased against anyone who
intentionally destroys something that I could use or that is rare and
irreplaceable. The belt-fed machine gun was just overkill and added
insult to injury IMHO. Another good example of senseless destruction
would be when Jesse James destroyed the DeLorean on Monster Garage.
I guess I will just have to be happy that not all British people hate
the Prius and that we have friends such as Jerry W. on here that seem
to quite enjoy the car.
