The Prius that Riner bought brand-new sat in her garage for a while because she hoped Toyota would change its mind about its offer. She just recently set an arbitration date with the company, and when she had the option of meeting at a dealership or fighting the case through the mail, she chose not to meet.

Unless she eats the $12,000, she’s stuck with a car she’s afraid to drive.

Bobette Riner had her Prius for a couple of months before it took off and died, leaving her stranded on the side of the road. Now she's stuck with a car she's afraid to drive

I love the fact that Prius is eco-friendly and is not heavy machinery, but that are probably the only positive remarks I can say about the car. It is just plain unattractive, and I consider it cheap, hard plastic. It is really an expensive (in relative to its competitors) toy car.
