Re: Prius--my view

If you check my original posts, I had a 2004 with the #9 package. I was so disappointed in the mileage/performance that I sold it back to the dealer. I now drive a SAAB and get lessmileage but not that much less when considering how good a car it is to drive. I am not against a Prius. I just think it is advertised falsely and bought too politically.

Oh man... how much did you sell it for? I could have bought it if you lived close to me: St. Louis

I must say you are one strange bird, mauleskyrocket

Contradictive to say least.

You never stop to amaze me.

First considering your radical right wing observations, I was surprised you would choose to drive Prius at all. But you do. OK, it didn't perform as promised, that's fine also.

But now, Saab ????

Another liberal choice in cars to say as liberal as it can get in cars.

Particularity considering its origin country.

OK, is your real name Hyde, Mr.Hide?

That would be only sufficient scientific explanation to this contradictive paradox of your choices

Is it good old (last true Saab) divine Hatch 9-3 or 9-3 New Sport Sedan?

He never sent us any requested picture of his Prius.

Not to mention, my concrete question about what 900 is he driving is
also left in silence. Owner of 900 Hatch should know what vintage is
his 900. (Saab is very concrete about models, after all)

Someone who fly airplane, should know more about company that makes both.

Re: Re: Re: Prius--my view

Volken my distrustful friend. If you know SAABs' then you certainly should know what a Kurt Wallander model 900 convertible looks like! Volken, maybe your the one who needs the high top shoes.

Mauleskyrocket,

Apparently there was a problem with HTML code because my smile was not posted before first comment and this is what gave you wrong impression about nature of my comment.

Funny, entire post misunderstood just in mercy of invisible smile J

Silver or Brownish color of your Saab?

Strangely I'm not familiar with this phrase : high top shoes

What does it mean?

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Prius--my view

I had to take a long auto trip this weekend. About six hundred miles all by motorway. Interstingly, and fitting my first post here, of the many Prius's I saw on the motorway, ALL were driving in the slow lane. In my mind this evidenced that they were aware that stressing the car in the least by accelerating was going to adversely affect their economy. Of course with my Kurt Wallander SAAB I just left them in my dust.

Actor that plays some detective?


Do you at least know production year of your 900?

1979-1980 4 Cyl. post models or Turbo?

Later models of 900?

What generation of 900 do you actually own?

Concrete please.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Prius--my view

The SAAB is a 9/3 cvtbl. I am proud of you solving the little riddle Volken. Indeed Kurt Wallander is the detective in a series of excellent books by Swedish author Henning Mankell. Mankell lives in Sweden and Mozambique and is one of the great current authors. Wallender, of course, drives a Peugot and therefore sort of screws up the riddle a bit.

So now it is no longer 900 as you said earlier, but 9-3 convertible?
What engine?

Is it last production 9-3 hatch?
