    Locking the prius while its running.

    I've actually wanted to do the same thing and I seem to have figured it out. I know of only one way to lock all your doors and keep the car running: use the actualy key. If you have the smartkey like I do, the problem is that the Prius freezes all the locks in the car at the position they were in when you exit. So here's what you do:

    1) Before getting out of the car, make sure all 4 doors are in the locked position.
    2) You'll have to get out through the drivers side door, which automatically unlocks the door when you pull the inside handle.
    3) Now remove the key from your smartkey and lock your door manually with the key.

    Be careful, though. Remember, the Prius freezes all locks until your inside the car again. Therefore, you can't use your smartkey to unlock it from the outside. You'll have to use the key and manually unlock it.

    I don't know of any other means, but if anyone has suggestions, I'd like to hear them too.

    Tag in front

    My prius came with pre-drilled holes for a plateholder in the front. I know that I can just ask my Prius dealer for a frame to mount a front license-plate. I'm guessing it's not free, except for those in a state where front plates are required. I would first check with your dealership and see what they have.

    We are looking at the Prius

    We are looking at the Prius and are wondering if you can lock the doors while you are in it, so that other can't enter. As a female driver this is a realy urban issue.
