We bought our last car in 2013 –
and in seven years – 126,000 miles!
Yes – we do travel the roads –
and the main thing we wanted –
was gas mileage!
Our Prius V 3 wagon – Toyota – got 40 to 44 MPG!
That car had exceptional room when you put the seats down.
And we knew when we move to South Carolina for five months
along with everything we must take – the clubs also were going!
We could do it – but it would be packed to the ceiling
and we would not be able to see out the back!
This one – we wanted the Roof rack –
and then we went and bought a basket carrier and installed it!
We also ordered a soft side roof top carrier!
Our old car had no roof racks!
So now – we are in the learning process as this car does everything
and then some through your smart phone!
But – one thing we found out is that Sherry must have her phone
when we travel for her internet business
and it must be free to do this – so we plug in my phone
as I really do not like phones and mostly take pictures with mine! LOL
That way when we google maps – there is no interference
As we are driving and getting directions!
YES – I HAVE TO HAVE DIRECTIONS!
Or I will get lost!
This car also has a ton of safety features – which Sherry loves!
All pertain to driving – blind side – auto lights –
cruise control radar ( it can almost steer itself)
It will detect a car in front and behind you.
A wide vision when backing up with guide lines!
There are many – many more extras
and some we are just learning how to use!
The main thing is gas mileage – and this one has it!
Right now we are averaging 42 to 44 MPG!
And – even though I have not used it – POWER!
It has three different modes –
One is ECO – going back and forth from gas to battery!
Two is power – Gas only with a three speed manual transmission.
Three is battery – battery only – you can travel about 1 1/2 miles.
And it is fast going zero to sixty – if you want to.
Our Prius V wagon 3 served us well for seven years.
Now we have a road trip vehicle with storage on the roof
and storage – a little more room inside
and capable of good gas mileage!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
