I just read </a></b></a>rowanf 's blog an her wait for a lushcious read Prius. Good for you, Rowan! I've been driving my 1989 Honda Accord waiting for a decent automobile that gets better mileage than the Accord and has similar or better handling and power. It looks like the Prius might be that car. I also heard Honda is making a hybridAccord, so I will wait and see. Meanwhile the old reliable Accord (at 275,000 miles) is doing OK. Yes, the power steering stopped being powered (I ought to take it in and have that fixed), and the radio only works properly on AM, but it still gets 32 miles per gallon and passes the emissions test with flying colors.
