Got our new Prius, some issues
Hello to all Prius'ers! We picked up our new Prius from Toyota of Tri-Cities on Friday March 20th. We love almost everything about it - got 49.7 MPG driving the 22 miles from the dealer to our house! This is freeway and uphill so we are sure we will beat that mileage overall. We looked at (and test drove) Honda Accord Hybrid, Ford Focus Energi, Chevy Volt, and some used cars, but in the end the Prius totally won us over. There are two issues that are vexing: 1) the "Level A" audio system does not change the preset list when changing modes (i.e., from AM to FM to Satellite). It also does not display the satellite channel info except for the channel you are on - so we get to memorize the numbers I guess. Our former Nissan Leaf had buttons for each mode and changed the channel listing when mode was switched, so we were spoiled. I see the Nav system ($4,300 we could not afford) does have this. Anyone dealt with this?
Second, the backup beeper will drive us crazy. I read the dealer can fix this, is that true?
Otherwise, a very fine car and we are thrilled with it so far.
