The Prius is horrible for the USA.

First of all the Batteries are not good because they are Nickel Metal and they cannot be recycled.

Second buying a foreign car puts nothing back into the USA no matter what people are saying ďBuilt in the USA" its hogwash. Basically you are killing important jobs higher up.

Third the extra cost of this car will not even pay for the gas and future battery replacement.

Forth, if you keep your old car the old car its better. To produce a car has horrible impacts on the environment.

The Prius is basically a car for people who are really not practical people and itís actually worse for the USA and worse for our environment.
