A Prius: It can hold most of IKEA�s flat pack furniture.

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

I absolutely adore my Prius! It is extremely comfortable for both the driver and passengers. I have had very few problems with the car, only minor issues so far, such as replacing tires or windshield wipers. I never pay any attention to gas prices because it uses so little gas for day to day driving. And, of course, on long trips it is absolutely wonderful because it costs so little to travel. My only complaint about the car would be that for someone of my height(5'3') I have two blind spots in the front and side sections of the car so sometimes can't see pedestrians as well, unless I learn forward. My husband doesn't have this issue though, so I think it's a matter of height. I wish that our particular year(2004) had the back up camera installed, but they put that in the year after our car was made. The car costs very little to maintain because it only needs an oil change every 5000 miles and it doesn't require a lot of oil. Also, the tires don't wear out very quickly so we haven't had to replace them very often. My favorite thing about the Prius is that the brakes aren't like brakes on other cars so they never need to be replaced. Often times people worry about needing to replaced the big hybrid battery in the back, but so far we've never needed to replace it.

Costly battery replacement, but a strong commitment this car will make for you.

2004 Toyota Prius Base

I drive an '04 Toyota Prius. It is both my first Toyota vehicle and hybrid vehicle. Being my first hybrid, I do wish that I have been more informed about the costs that generally come with hybrids, or at least mine. I love my car, it has taken me everywhere I've needed to be. And despite my pretty low upkeep, it hasn't let me down. I have had to replace both batteries (electric and standard) by now (I've had it for 3 years), and that has probably been the most difficult part for me. I purchased this car for the gas saving aspect, not realizing the cost for the batteries) would be so costly. But I still adore this vehicle. The navigation system, the clean/sleek appeal, the cargo space! There is so much space! I've honestly been able to fit one 4-drawer Ikea dresser in the back with a few other items at the same time. Plus, this little hatchback can sit up to 5 people. I would definitely purchase this car again in the future.

Great car, good on gas, no it is not slow.

2004 Toyota Prius

2004 it is been reliable 14 years. I had the auxiliary battery replaced twice. The hybrid battery replaced 2016. Toyota wanted $4000, green bean did it for $1654 and they come to your home, plus 5 year warranty. It seems to be using oil, but that is ok, as with older cars you check oil before cranking. Gas mileage still great. Only thing I dislike now are the cloth seats, cannot get them clean. No problems, although I keep my car serviced a Toyota. Once had wiper blades that wasn't Toyota's, that noise drove me crazy, replaced with Toyota, noise gone. Same thing with Mr. Tire brakes for life, mistake, noise, grinding, got Toyota's brakes and drums, all good.
