It really does save fuel, and really does have some pickup when you push that accelerator. Small and nimble to drive, yet pretty big on the inside.

I've loved this car ever since I test drove one. I thought the hybrid thing was stupid back in 2003, but then I did that test drive, and knew I had to buy it at that moment. I got lucky and actually paid $100 less than list at the time (most paid more than list, although I did have to wait 3 months or so). I've averaged more than 40 mpg and love every minute of it. Very few issues/problems with the car. Did get a few software/firmware upgrades in the first couple of years, which really helped with any issues.....since then, great car!

This car will never let you down while providing a great feeling of caring for the environment, saving a ton on gas, maintenance and repairs and is fun to drive.

I have loved owning this Prius since 2004 when it was still a strange and anomalous vehicle that has since become emblematic of environmentally friendly. The car has never given me any trouble, except that tires don't seem to have a long life span. Every day has been a game to see how great the mileage can be and has taught me a lot about the best way to drive a car efficiently. I'm ready to replace it, but can't find anything I think will be better than a Prius!

Cheap to maintain, and cheap to drive.

This car is insanely reliable and gets amazing gas mileage. For road trips I often average over 50 miles per gallon. It is pretty comfortable too. For people who haven't driven a Prius, the push start and shifting are a little odd to get used to but ultimately fine. The line of sight speedometer is really nice. It is a zippy little car that's cheap to drive and maintain. It is bad that it only has a CD player but obviously that changes in later models.
