I coudn't resist going to look at the new 2010 Gen III Priuses. They are really nice! They have a lot of new features like a solar powered roof that will jump start your air conditioning, parallel park automatic system, and cruise that adjusts your speed so you don't bump the car in front! Very high tech! There isn't a computer screen any more unless you get the Navigation option. This Prius had the Navigation screen and had a sticker price of a little over 30,000.00! I would suggest buying one from www.autobeyours.com and save about 18,000.00 or more!

On Wednesday, June 10 I took my Prius PHEV into Steve and Jenny Woodruff's Auto Be Yours in Scottsburg, Indiana. I was very excited to actually visit the business I have been visiting virtually for over 9 months now. I was not at all disappointed.
As I walked in Steve and Jenny warmly greeted me and showed me the basics of their business. Steve gave me free reign to take pictures and take pictures I did! I took dozens of pictures.
Steve was going to let me borrow his Doc Holliday special Prius to go visit my son and come back in a couple of days. However, upon surveying the work needed to be done, he gave me the option to wait and he said he should have it done in a couple of hours.
That sounded great to me. I was able to pull up to the car and watch Steve and Jenny work on the vehicle. I was amazed how they knew the Prius inside and out. Jenny worked as a team with her husband. She knew every part that was needed and help put the little "boo boo's" back together.
The car looked great when they finished. Steve took me outside and we lined up all the PHEV cars and took pictures. Steve also let me drive the "all electric" eprius which has NO gas mower. It is powered by three Prius stock batteries. Pretty cool indeed!
Upon leaving I thanked Steve and Jenny profusely and said I would be back for their OPEN HOUSE in July. I am also going to take my 2005 Prius over to Steve's to have some small cosmetic work done. Thank you Steve and Jenny for this great experience. In the next couple of days when I get home, I will post all the photos I took. Here are a couple for now.

Our PHEV needs a few touch ups on it that Steve Woodard of www.autobeyours.com we take care of with his unbelievable one year warranty. This is one reason I went with Steve and his business. He backs up what he sells! I have been very happy with our PHEV and really enjoy talking about it with people who are interested. I probably get asked at least twice a week, "Does this car really get 100 mpg?" I of course answer, "Yes it does!" I then point everyone towards www.autobeyours.com and the great work they do. By the way, I really enjoy being able to watch Auto Be Yours on their shop cameras, very cool!

We are having a lot of fun driving the PHEV vehicle around. When I can plug in at work, we are averaging over 55 mpg and higher. I am getting about 300 miles in the first half of a tank of gas. This summer should be fun.
