Subject: [Leica] Totally OT: Prius experiences?

This is totally OT, but I am sure that I can count on the wealth of  
knowledge here, also about things other than photography. I need to  
replace my car before Christmas (about 1 month is my estimate of the  
remaining tolerable lifetime of the car that I used to drive down to  
Alicante in September).

I am only looking at 1-2 year old second-hand cars, since I want  
someone else to have suffered the heavy depreciation a new car  
experiences in the first year.

One of the options is a Prius at a local Toyota dealer with about  
50000 km on the odometer. I like the idea of doing something for the  
environment, especially since most of my driving here in Alicante is  
in the city. And we have good experiences with Toyota (my wife has a  
Previa minivan, and there have been several other Toyotas in her  

So, are there any Prius owners here? How are your experiences with  
this car?

Given the OT nature of this question, feel free to reply off-list:
