BECAUSE NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED. they made mistakes with some things and they are trying to fix them. and the prius is not the only issue.
the prius though was rushed into production because of all the global warming idiots screaming for something more "green" they burn much less gas than other cars, but what about the battery acid. when those batteries have to be changed, where do we put all that leftover lead. seems to me the cure is worse than the disease.
i had a 1998 saturn sl1 and it got 43 miles to the gallon on a trip. it had 150,000 miles on it and ran beautiful. someone decided to go through a red light and total the car last year, but the engine still ran after a hellacious impact. lets make those instead.
