    So Toyota thinks its ok to say people can rob a bank and avoid police for hours and think its cool.

    I don’t get this commercial, either. First, it’s wrong and dangerous to rob banks, and secondly, the average police car with a top speed of about 130 can easily outrun a Prius which at best can do 110. Also, police use stopsticks, pursuit driving maneuvers, and shoot out tires of fleeing felons, which is what these guys are. Making them some sort of folk heroes, even based on a sophomoric movie, is very strange and sends a terrible message. I’m a Honda person anyway, but now I would NEVER buy a Prius.
