    The Mercedes is 10 years old (dating from when I still needed to pay attention to such things for clients). The dogs ride in it quite often -- but only one or two at a time. The p/u truck is a quad cab, leaving more than enough space for five dogs in the box and the back seat.

    I know quite a few Prius owners. All of them love the cars.

    In Santa Fe too...go figure...
    But trully, the state vehicle in NM is a turquoise '60's or 70's model P/U with one headlight and one (maybe) tail-light, with the registration sticker obscured with a little mud, but the handicap placard clearly visiable on the rearview mirror.

    God, I love 'merica.

    Stop taking Prius if you have a Prius lasting over four hours and call your doctor immediately.

    Mine is 3 years old - just great. I can put a 400 crate in the back seat, all my other stuff in the back/hatch area and me and my Lab can go to a show or obedience trial in comfort. My wallet is getting fat on the gas savings.

    Doesn't work so good in the field though.

    Park it at the road. I rented a mustang one time to go to Nebraska Dog & Hunt's fall trial and I left half of it in the field and had to call for new car after I damaged the radiator.

    Not very smart but the bumper to bumper insurance was.
