Prius fans forever with outstanding gas efficiency and undeniable comfort!

I have owned and driven three Toyota Prius' over the past 13 years. Working as a sales rep within a large territory, I was very pleased with it is gas efficiency. It drove smoothly and quietly all the while within a very comfortable setting. The seat provided support for my lower back with plenty of head and leg room. The car is wider than what u would imagine on the inside with fold down rear seats if needed. My only maintenance on the vehicle was keeping up with oil changes and tires.. It was always very reliable and dependable. I never had to worry about the vehicle breaking down or being danger to drive.. It holds a high level of safety with rear and front air bags as well as steel reinforced doors. I have driven each vehicle well over the 200, 000 mile before having any issues with the hybrid batteries. These can be replaced and u would swear your car is as good as new! My only complaint is although two of my vehicles were built in 2005, the vehicle built in 2006 had a very limited life span with its headlights.. After researching this issue on google, it seems this was a common occurrence although it was never verified through corporate. Overall, if necessary, I would purchase another Toyota Prius without any hesitation..

Toyota Prius: gas mileage queen.

Very tight fit is the bad side. But, car is pretty high tech considering it is 15 years old almost. Also, the gas mileage is still incredible! I am able to get well over 300 miles in a single tank. It averages about 42 mpg; however, on 60 mph highways, I am able to get over 50 mpg for a tank. Car does burn gas if you are a short commuter, like only a few miles. It will only get like 35-36 mpg city or quick highway trips. Car heats up quick and has a surprising amount of features on the touchscreen dash. Hatchback does provide a lot of room, surprisingly to put stuff. The best part about the car is it is overall affordability. It saves money up front, on your insurance, and per tank. Watch out though, if you drive quite a bit, the tank is only like 8 or 9 gallons and you'll have to refill semi-regularly.

Reliable, efficient, and trustworthy.

This is a really reliable car. I am able to drive a long way on one tank of gas. On average, I amble to get about 30-50 miles per gallon. The car only holds about 8 gallons of gas though. One feature I wish this car had was either a tape player or a spot to hook up my phone to. Another feature I wish it had was that it would stay on the menu you selected instead of going back to how your car is performing while driving. It is nice to see that information but I would also like for it to have that staying feature. Overall, it is a reliable car. It gets me to where I need to go without too many problems.
