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.

Love my old Prius except for the blind spots.

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

I have never had any issues with my car's performance. My only issues are the lack of back-up cam (my model is from before they were standard), coupled with a bad blind spot - it is necessary to be very careful when changing lanes. Other than that, I love the mileage I get, and the way the car picks up quickly when I get on the freeway.

Great leg room for a compact car.

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

Very reliable vehicle! Over 230,000 miles on it and still running well! Comfortable seating with plenty of legroom. Nice trunk space. Does not handle super well in the snow. I have been stuck a few times. If it is windy out and you are going over 55mph you'll certainly feel the wind pushing the car.

14+ Years and still averaging 50 mpg in town..

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

Still runs great after 14+ years of use. The Prius is compact but still has plenty of storage space while comfortably fitting 4-5 people. Not the greatest turn radius but not terrible either, it just takes some getting used to the hybrid engine and feel of the car. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

Favorite part of my car would have to be the interior it is amazing.

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

I love but hate my car it is a very nice model but the only things I hate about it the mechanical problems. It is a great model very slim and a great color. The only thing I regret is not buying a newer model and more reliable mechanic problems. I would advise you to buy a reliable younger model.

- Veronica J

Buying a Prius was the best decision! It is perfect to drive in the city.

2004 Toyota Prius 5dr HB (Natl)

Usually I am more of an SUV kind of person but I love my Prius. I can fill up the tank with $25 once a week. Even though it is a small car, it is comfortable and practical. When something breaks, it is easy and cheap to fix. Would definitely upgrade to the new Prius.
