Why You Should Not Buy A Toyota Prius
According to some popular YouTube guys, the Toyota Prius is the worst car you can buy. Well, are they right or not? I will tell you my opinion on why I think you should not buy one.
The Toyota Prius Is Terrible Because It Has Great Fuel Economy
I want people to spend hundreds of dollars at the pump... said no one ever. The Toyota Prius is one of the most popular vehicles because it keeps your hard-earned money in your pocket.
I hate it that my Prius gets 57 miles per gallon; it is so frustrating. Saving all that money makes me just want to get rid of it. The fact that Toyota could even conceive of a car that gets such good gas mileage is beyond me. Please do not buy a Prius so you can save on gas.
The Toyota Prius Is Unreliable
According to Scotty Kilmer, the Prius is a bad car because you cannot change the alternator due to high voltage. How dare Toyota design a vehicle that has fewer moving parts that could fail and have someone stranded. Terrible.
Prius is so unreliable that owners are reporting hundreds of thousands of miles without any significant issues. Even those crazy hybrid battery packs have become better over time and kept people on the road longer.
Toyota wanted to push customers away so badly that they made it 10 years 150,000 miles with their battery warranty. Tragic.
This article is satire if you did not catch on to that. It is refuting claims that the Prius is not a great car to own and operate. Prius is reliable and very economical. They are beautiful cars, and I can attest to that after owning 14 of them myself.
I hope this sparks a few laughs for my readers out there and helps curb those "Monday Blues." Have a great day, everyone, and I look forward to seeing you in the following article.
