While many Prius owners would like to discuss climate change, energy alternatives, and related political concerns, the Moderators will be blocking or deleting OFF-TOPIC posts - please direct such discussions to other groups.
If you are interested in the 2004 and subsequent model year Prius, you can also join the Prius-2G group at http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/Prius-2G/
IF YOU ARE NEW to the group, I suggest you explore the "Files" and "Links" pages--especially the "FAQs" folder in "Links". Also, all new members are initially on 'moderation.'
IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT A PARTICULAR PRIUS, please mention the model year, due to significant model year differences.
If you are posting a vehicle FOR SALE message, please make sure that it includes the following information: model year, new or used? (condition and mileage if used/preowned/demo), location, PRICE, option packages and accessory information, availability, and your contact information.
