Re: Just returned from an 800 mile round trip to southern WV in my new 2014 Overland.

You realize that a Prius has a larger carbon foot print than a diesel locomotive don't you? And if it wasn't for government subsidies they would cost more than a SRT?

The original price is sticker price - the actual out the door price was probably something like 45 to 46K - so this is not out of line!
