Reviews: The TOYOTA PRIUS V

“Reviewing TOYOTA PRIUS V”

By Sandy Zimmerman

With all the news about Toyota’s hybrid cars, their Prius V (pronounced “vee”) has been an example of the hybrid with the latest safety features, gas savings and low carbon emissions.

A test-drive should be long enough to experience a car’s versatility, safety features and performance under different conditions. The test-drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles allowed for a combination of highway and city driving.

Driving alone during the six-and-a-half-hour trip, the Lane Assist (LA) was important because it helps prevent accidents. When a driver strays across the marked lanes, the LA sends warning signals. This automatic response system would be most helpful if a driver falls asleep at the wheel or was distracted.

LA uses a camera mounted on the front of the car.

Many of Toyota Prius V’s safety features are integrated to work together. The Lane Assist works with the Radar Cruise Control system (RCC). Once the RCC is activated, a counter-steering force is automatically applied.

The RCC sets the distance between the driver and the car in front to adjust the speed.

These automatic responses automatically adjust the way the car and the driver continue along the road.

It is reassuring to know the car’s safety features are automatic as they work to protect the driver and passengers.

Running out of gas is a problem worring many drivers on trips. Since Toyota invented the hybrid, that is not a problem anymore.

When driving a hybrid, the gas engine continually switches with the electric motor to  keep using the electric mode.

The long highway drive was comfortable thanks to the wide bucket seats.



















The James Bond Wine Table

May 15th, 2010 • by admin
When you visit Del Friscos, do not miss seeing the most amazing $1.2 million dollar James Bond table. Looking like a normal table at first, Jacque touched her remote control pad and the table suddenly opened to present the James Bond OO7 Films Wine Collection. Eighteen magnums of Cabernet wine from Napa Valley wineries each represent different Bond films. These one- of-a kind bottles are each laser-edged.
