I live in Middlebury, 250 miles from the White Plains, NY location...which I might add struck me as an odd location, being it is only 30 miles from this store to the other NY store. So, round trip means $500 or $250? I am really beginning to question whether or not this is cheaper to maintain than the Prius I now own. I read somewhere that each annual "checkup" costs $600. I am not wealthy, just very ecologically aware. I'm a teacher and this car will cost me close to two years of salary as it is.
