Hey there! I just bought a car off the show room floor, it looked great, so i decided why not? Its a scion and they're great, so here i am owning a brand new scion iA, and loving every second of it.

So, hi my name is Tim and i live down in naples, where does everyone reside?

I went to Toyota to get an oil-change in the Prius, then said "no no no" to the $600+ bill when it needed tires too, so i went looking at cars and this caught my eye, (i was looking at the ia/im anyway) heres then pulling it out of the showroom haha

I can see that being a common thing, for people who own somewhat fuel efficient vehicles to venture into the iA, for the mileage it gets.... it's amazing, you'll forget what a hybrid vehicle is. :D

The prius did much better on trips to fort myers (about 35 miles away), but in city the mpg seems roughly the same. 400MPT vs 370MPT 12gal vs 10. I love the 6 speed trans and the peppyness of the car around town, the prius was just too heavy.

Over all, after 200 miles so far, im still in love with my iA

One thing that might help with driving in the city is to try to keep the vehicle rolling as much as you can rather than going through consistent stop and go, most people don't stick to a slow roll.
