The first time I rented a Prius, it was because my old Taurus had been dying at stoplights. I even had to be push-bumped out of the intersection by a cop after it died on me less than a week after the shop said it was fixed. (And I mean that: literally, the cop had to intentionally "ram" the car...)New cars are a nightmare these days. I've driven loaner cars when mine was in the shop. So many things, so many distractions, and there was no way to tell if your car was locked because it locks or unlocks when the key fob is close to the car. And it shut off at every traffic light: something about getting a better milage rating. That was hard to get used to. What if it doesn't start when the light turns green?
When the engine died at stops, I had minor heart attacks every time, even knowing what it was doing and why...
Other than that, though, and the annoying spoiler thingy that cut right across my line of sight in the rear view, I could get used to one of those; roomier than expected, with more power.
Though it did take us far too long to figure out how to start the thing. (And I know someone at work who had Issues when their magic fob developed a glitch and started screaming that it was stolen every time they left the house.)
