My Prius the best hybrid car out there!

I love my Prius for several reasons. It gets great gas mileage for one. It's really low maintenance so as long as I get regular oil changes it runs fantastic. It's one of the older generations so there are a couple quirks like the headlights are hard to change out, and when they get up in higher mileage the oil starts to burn a little more, but nothing to dissuade someone from purchasing. Fun to drive too! One of my favorite features is the smart key, I know other cars have this now but not having to even get my key out and unlocking the door when I get close, and starting the car with a button is kind of awesome. Also how it goes into a sort of stand by mode when its stopped was weird at first but of course I am used to it now. I would recommend a Prius to anyone. perfect. First car, and also good for families. Put the back seats down and you have a lot of space to load up! Not to mention its Toyota so they drive forever and have the best resale value of any used car out there.

Pretty Good and Pretty Not Good: 2006 Toyota Prius

The 2006 Prius gas mileage is great! Tech on the car is dated, so you need lots of adapters and chargers to use your smartphone. Repairs can be very expensive. They hybrid engine is especially pricey and always needs to be replaced around 150 - 200k miles. You must check to see if this has been replaced if considering a purchase of one with about this many miles. Speed bumps are not friendly to this car. The air conditioner isn't as powerful as newer models, and the heater takes about 10 minutes to make a difference on cold days. Anyone over six feet tall might want to consider a different vehicle. The seats do not lower to provide more room for tall people.

The Toyota Prius: It Keeps on Going

My Prius is 12 years old with 115,000 miles and is still running great. We have only needed to do one minor repair, outside of regular maintenance. It drives smoothly, and gets excellent mileage. Even after 12 years, the mileage is still great. The seats are comfortable, and the touch screen display is convenient. The ac and vents are great. It heats and cools well. The rear seats have a 40/60 fold, and provides a surprising amount of cargo space. It's not a luxury car, but it feels well made and comfortable. It is practical without feeling bare bones. It had been a great car for my family, and we intend to keep driving it as long as we can.
