Toyota hybrid questions December 24, 2005 3:09 PM

Hi, all. Hope you are enjoying the festivities. I have a couple of questions. 1) Can you stick a rack on top of the prius (I seriously doubt it but thought I'd ask). 2) What's the latest on the Hylander hybrid? Thanks.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Hey, I just found this: http://www.bluewaternetwork.org/telltoyota/index.shtml Answers my question about the hylander. Hmmm. Disappointing. Anyways, it is an action alert, so please take action. Thanks!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Thanks for the link, Jenn! I didn't see anything in the NYT article about the Hylander's fuel economy, though -- just the Lexus. Back in September when I took my '02 Prius in for its scheduled maintenance, I walked around the new car lot and spotted some Hylander hybrids next to the regular Hylanders. I can't remember what the EPA mileage numbers were, bu the sticker price for the hybrid was around $40k vs about $28k for the gas-only version. I'd be interested to know what a buyer actually gets for all that extra moolah. As for the roof rack, check out Yakima. They probably have one that fits the Prius fine.

Thanks for you reply. Yakima does make awesome racks. That is what we have on our current car. I'll have to browse their website and see if Prius is listed.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
