ask someone who just purchased a prius c anything

>dat smooth as fuck cvt

>there are people on /o/ right now still driving with traditional transmitions with lateral g's between shifts
>>
You clearly don't understand the flaws with a cvt
But I already knew you were ignorant when you said you drive a "priud"
>>
How long have you been a cuck op?
>>
>>14322292

>the flaws
>muh unable to downshift!
>muh no way to impress the "girls" by the sound of my engine revving with the clutch engaged!
>>
>>14322264
I'm actually happy for you OP.
People need to grow the fuck up around here.
Pruis is gud car
>>
>>14322264
How much did you pay?
>>
>not buying a truck
You are a fag
>>
>>14322331

super great not fucking with the shitty chevy "eco" gimmicks where the engine shuts off entirely then you have to wait for it to start again, super fucking annoying if you're in a fastfood lane

also i love the wide view windshields, the temp control is an actual number not just a analog blue/red circle

and the eco gauges are the biggest thing that i loved

only reason i stuck with the 15 instead of the 16 is cause they're changing the battery type so ill let others be the guinnie pig for the next 2 years then when i turn this in it'll either still be LiOn or back to older Nippon based

on the way home from the dealership which is about 15-20 minutes highway and then into the city my estimate guage was 51mph

need to work on the breaking tho, it seems like harder braking is better for the batteries than slowly
>>
>>14322316
The price of a cvt and the lifespan are what kills it.
>>
>>14322423

>lifespan

im leasing bro, relax
>>
OP HERE, yeah my boyfriend's transfluid son is the one the talked me into this great buy, here are the reasons he/she gave me that convinced me to buy
> roomy backseat, great for family orgy
> power windows, went you need to suck some dick when ya get pulled over
> electric, saves me money on gas, which I can put towards my dildo collection
> cupholders
>>
>>14322453

dont worry bro, you can pass me while revving your engine to reach the gas station faster
>>
>>14322462
That's my dildo cannon that's revving, not my engine!!
>>
>tfw 6 speed manual
kek, nice prius OP
>>
>>14322507

have fun with all that bullshit

when i get off of work i dont then want another fucking job to get home
>>
>>14322526
I didn't know sucking dicks was a hard job
>>
>>14322568
legally passing emissions is though vw shill

hows that 50% drop in resale value feel? and the inability to register your car real soon
>>
>>14322595
"Inability to register your car"
I hope you really this won't ever happened in texas, people could care less about diesels

I don't know, but the $1000 felt pretty nice :^)
>>
>>14322625
you'll need more than that to make up for the depreciation in the last 3 months, kek.

>>14322606
it's almost guaranteed to happen in any state adopting california emissions laws, mostly the liberal states

You really need to understand the culture in texas, these people do not give a shit.

are different people :^)

That still doesn't change the fact that you're a Fucking faggot
>>
>>14322264
You got a prius and a cvt. Might as well turn your manhood in.
>>
why are you shitposting?

>>14322452

Man did your wife's son talk you into that or did he force you to.
>>
>>14322452

>5in wide LRR tires

It's a shitbox OP
>>
>>14323085
Who's shit posting?
>>
>>14322625
>$500 in dealer services or cool merchandise
>expires in 1 year
Actual value of this benefit is debatable. My own view is that dealer services are shit.
>>
Realistically a Prius/Prius C transaxle shares pretty much nothing in common with an actual CVT, so whatever. Enjoy your reliable economy car.
>>
>>14323150
>implying i didnt just get a set of brake rotors and pads for all 4 corners and some clothing
>>
I have a Prius C , I love it but accelerating is dog shit but that's expected. Getting gas every three weeks compared to once a week before is the best feel.
>>
>>14322423

> lifespan

Good thing the Prius doesn't have a regular CVT. It hooks up the gas engine, electric motor and output shaft to a planetary gearset.

>>14323176

This.
>>
>>14323776
How's the feeling that everybody thinks your gay for driving a prius?
>>
>>14323776

nice bro, so happy to be done with the shitty chevy malibu eco and its stupid engine off during braking gimmick, sticker MPG was half in both city/hwy of the prius'

Nah you're just a lazy piece of shit and that's why you're not good at anything.
>>
>>14322423
Let's face it, the main reason why CVT didn't become as big was because Bernie's band of thugs banned it before ever appearing in Formula 1 (it's obvious he's corrupt). And thus barely any research money was spent on improving CVT.

http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2007/05/03/banned-continuously-variable-transmission-cvt/

Either that or I'm still upset that Dutch technological prowess was banned before even getting a chance.
>>
>>14324618
>why CVT didn't become as big
virtually every cheap weeb car has CVT now
>>
>>14323542
>a set of brake rotors and pads for all 4 corner
Bought this from Rockauto for $98-.
>>
>>14322595
Thinks resale values have been influenced at all. Can't google for shit.
>>
>>14323542
Did your car need brakes?
>>
>>14324618
CVT are not taking on because they belong in tractors and lawn mowers not cars.
>>
>>14324686
Yet they all picked it for the fuel economy (well, except for maybe Subaru...
>>
>>14322264
Is it your only car, or is it just a commuter with something fun for the weekend?
>>
>>14322264
what does it do when you pin the throttle ?
with a normal auto this activates the lock up clutch and drops a gear
>>
>>14322423
>Toyota
>And a Prius at that
>Questioning lifespan

u dun g00f'd

>>14325006
Immediate redline until you're done. Battery boosts depending on SoC (oh, State of Charge) .

Will easily outlast any auto, too.

>>14323902
Never cared what people thought. I've invested 7k I'd have spent on fuel with a civic since I bought it. Only paid 2.5k more than the civic and got better options too. My last tank was $4 for 400 miles, because grocery $0.499/gal.
>>
>>14327225
Doesn't look like your getting 50mpg there buddy.
>>
>>14322264
Try swapping an LS1 into it m8
>>
whats everyone's eco score?
>>
>>14322331
Prius C isn't though
