The next generation Accord is supposed to have a clean diesel version but not until later, I'd much rather drive a diesel than a fugly car like the Prius.

I test drove the prius on Saturday. It was pretty entertaining to sit in an drive. There is a lot of technology in it. If it had plush leather seats and 18inch rims I would almost call it a luxury car. Many folks don't give it a chance because it looked so awkward when it came out. Especially when it sat next to the "echo" on the lot. After getting a chance to play with the electronics and gadgets (smart key and push button start), I can understand why people spend 25,000 for them. I also noticed that the 2006 CIVIC sedan is creeping its way into the Prius design realm.

I was surprised at the Prius. Nice inside. Sraight from Japan and FILLED to the brim with convenience technology.

Did anyone see governor swarz...(dont know how to spell it) on Pimp my ride? He was checking out the 455hp, Biodiesel, 60something Impala that go 25 miles per gallon. I was sold on Biodiesel after that episode.

has anyone who lives in Cali seen a BIodiesel pump at their local gas station?

It's actually somehow sad that Honda as no Diesel car in North America... they do have here... they already have every model (except the S2000 and the Legend) so it's kind of funny that it's obviously not worth it to offer them in North America.

I've driven a Prius or 2 at my job, I was surprised at how nice they are. I probably still wouldn't buy one, but they're certainly legit.
