Hi, just wondering... we are moving to the Rockies, about an hour from Denver... Our commute will be going up and down about 2,500 ft daily in elevation. I just sold my 4 cylinder Dodge minivan because it was completely gutless and could barely go 35 mph up the hill!!! Anyone use a hybrid in the mountains? I am wondering if the fuel economy is worth it, I just don't want to be the dork on the shoulder of the highway going 35 mph anymore!!! Also, maybe it is the nerd in me, but I just LOVE the styling of the Prius! I am surprised to hear that people think it needs restyling. I would buy one today if I could test drive it up the hill!!
