Yup about the Prius. So many wealthy people are driving these. It is not a status symbol, rather, it is "in style" with the rich these days.And the Prius .. surprising how many well to do people own them.
I believe MB still lists those buying new wagons as being the wealthiest buyers.
As they say ... flash = no cash
Based on your decent collection of rides, :thumbsup: in just exactly how many of those wealthy zip codes do you live?Of my cars, here is my review:
2000 Mercedes E320: All rounder fun to drive. :thumbsup:
2012 Acura TL w/ Technology package: Loaded with so much freakin technology. Nice to drive, but I have more fun playing with the gadgets when its parked in the driveway.
2002 Lexus LS 430 w/ Ultra Luxury Edition: Comfort, ride and luxury in the truest sense. Best for long distance driving but hate driving it in town. Rear seat massagers and rear seat reclining is fun. So is the refrigerator and the air conditioned and heated seats. It too is loaded with so much technology! I like technology. :thumbsup: Makes me feel like an old person though.
2002 Chevrolet Suburban: WTF was I thinking buying an American car?! :bash: NEVER AGAIN IN MY LIFETIME! I feel ashamed to even sell it.
2005 Nissan Titan: My beater with only 23k miles. Excellent for home depot shit or towing. I can literally see the gas needle drop driving around in town.
Next car I'll probably experiment with will either be the current C-Class or the Facelift W211.
I was in Europe and the UK recently. E Class are everywhere ---- as taxis and in diesel. I hardly saw any gassers. We were using a W212 E250 CDI Coupe in the UK. 46MPG in stop-and-start traffic and 64MPG on the open road at about 75 to 80 MPH. I just love the 250CDI engine - I think it will run rings around my E320.I happen to be one of those Prius owners -- They are a perfect second .. or extra car. We have been shocked at how often it gets used. We purchased it in January of this year and it already has 13k on it ... and it has been to the dealer once ... for the 10k oil change.
The batteries have proven to be so reliable that the recycling problem never really materialized - and the cars just keep getting better ...Surprising car. Great .. get out of the city car.
We regularly get 54 miles per gallon with it. One member of the family regularly gets 60!
Only in the USA where we get stuck with dumb laws that keep us wasting money on gas and wars. I'll be glad when electrics are the majority. I envision a time when I am old and wiggly my grandkids will see pictures of me working on the W210 and ask "what are all those tubes and wires and why are you so dirty grandpa?"I was in Europe and the UK recently.

The Prius is not very popular in the UK or Europe, the reason being that they have too heavy a fuel consumption. It is only in the USA where they are seen as having a good fuel consumption, elsewhere small turbo-diesels provides 70 to 80 MPG very easily.
LOL :big laugh:There's a way to tell the level of rich of an E-class owner by the use of the three buttons on the rear mirror.
Low rich: One button is programmed to open garage door.
Medium rich: Two buttons.
High rich: Three buttons.
Super rich: One button to open the mansion's gate.
