If you take a Prius on vacation, you make good time because you aren't filling up the tank very often. That good time is key...because you will arrive at your old hometown and discover that your headlight and a taillight are out. That means you get to make an appointment at the Toyota dealer to get them replaced. (because even if a quickie lube could replace one--odds are you won't be able to get both fixed.)
Yes, I am on vacation and get to spend my afternoon at the dealership before driving home. No, it probably isn't typical but I growl this morning at the inconvenience!
