The Prius is a joy to drive.

My Prius is a joy to drive. I chose it mainly for the excellent gas mileage. But in 3 year, I have never had any problems with it. Very reliable. 700 miles on one fill up. One thing I do not care for is that it does not have 4 wheel drive. Also, it is very ‘tinny’ the doors seem to be very thin. I am nervous that if I get into an accident, the car will not protect me.

The pros and cons of owning a Prius.

It takes a while for the car to get cool. The back window is not wide enough, its loud, good on gas. However it all depends how the person drives. If you drive below 40 mph it gives good mileage however if you drive above 40mph it does not give you good mileage. The radio needs better speakers. The car is roomy plus great for parking in small spots.

Space age transit in a Prius.

Driving a hybrid car is amazing! I love not having to think about gas. This car also has a lot of good tech- backup camera, Bluetooth and USB connectivity and tons of storage room. If you really love driving powerful cars, this is not the car for you. It is more like a spaceship than a car with push to start and other features.

Air Bags Jan 15, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Jan 15, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V013000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Toyota Prius V vehicles manufactured November 7, 2013, to January 7, 2015. The occupant classification system (OCS) that activates or deactivates the passenger seat air bag system may be improperly calibrated. As a result, the passenger air bag may not deploy in a vehicle crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."
Consequence:
If the air bag does not deploy as intended, there is an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will re-calibrate of the OCS system, free of charge. The recall began February 12, 2015. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331.
