thsykes, I am more concerned that they might "glow in the dark". That was a extremely "dirty" meltdown of their reactors. Is there any measure being taken to insure these vehicles are not built (in the case of the prius) and shipped with radionuclides, or the subframes shipped to our plants for assembly aren't shipped in the same condition? Will the owner of a new prius suddenly develop nose bleeds from cesium posioning? Before I bought one of these units I would go over it with a dosimeter because even though I believe the government of japan would never allow "dirty" steel or components to be shipped from that nation, the private companies (like the one who operated these reactors) are not as scrupulous. This meltdown could not have failed to ruin a lot of othewise good components by making them radioactive.
