Cars.com Reviews the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In

PriusPlugIn

Leery about putting all your chips down on either the efficiency of a pure-electric or the acceleration of an extended-range car? Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder explains how the 2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In lets you hedge your hybrid bets. But while the plug-in version boasts a three-hour recharge time on household power and trumps the standard Prius on fuel savings, it costs $8,000 more — making the odds on whether it's worth it a wager you'll have to make for yourself.

2012 Toyota Prius Plug-In Review

I think that the Prius reviews are being put out now to get people to forget that some of them lite on fire during hurricane sandy.

The Sandy situation caused only 3 Prius to "meltdown", while, I believe, there were over 100 of them submerged in salt water. Personally, I have 110,000 miles on my 2008 Prius and just "sold" it to my son and bought another, a 2012 Prius. I personally cannot say enough GOOD about this car. I don't plan to take it into the ocean when I go swimming...

Angela,

How about the spontaneously combusting Chevy Volt? No Hurricane required...

I really like the Toyota Prius.And the cost $8,000 is vey cheap.
