what about ford focus or maybe a sentra?
Prius are great cars for in-town commutes. Their better mpg's come intown (when runnign hybrid) than when travelling freeways. I'd say look for a year old honda civic. They are safe, reliable and will you years of satisfaction. If your wanting to stick to the toyota family...tell your pop's to look into Scion Xa/Xb (since its in their budget).SmokingTiresV6 said:You can get a used Prius for in your price range.
