Welcome to this, my new blog, all about owning and driving our family's Toyota Prius. I have been tempted to blog about family life with this fantastic car for a few months now, having had poor experiences with previous family vehicles (of which I shall no doubt write in subsequent posts). Life had come to the point where the state of my sanity depended on having a car that didn't break down on the school run and just simply worked - predictably, cheaply and reliably. We followed head rather than heart and plumped for a 2006 Toyota Prius T-Spirit - and haven't looked back since! I really can't wait to write about this fantastic family hybrid car and share our experiences of happy, green clean motoring.
