You'll Like The 2007 Toyota Prius If...

If you're concerned about the environment, this car produces next-to-zero greenhouse emissions in stop-and-go driving. Speeds below 30-miles per hour are handled by the electric motor -- the gasoline engine comes on only when you need more power or are driving at highway speeds. Nothing says "I'm Green" like a Prius parked in your driveway.

That it uses both gas and electricity to help to cut down on the carbon footprint you leave on the earth. I really love this car. Easy to drive.

I love the low gas use. It is a small car but it carries a load of wood great. I do not like the outside trunk key pressure pad. It is hard to get it to open and feels like hot weather makes it like putty. But all in all, it is a great little car, very comfortable. I am 4'11 and my sweetie is 6'5 and we both fit into it with no problem. We have taken many vacations in it and it is a very comfortable ride. I highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a great car.

One of a kind 2007, Toyota Prius.

One of a kind Prius. Eco-friendly. Gas saver. Can give you the most of your mileage. Quiet, comfortable. Back seats are very spacious; a lot of legroom. Has backup camera and a navigational map system. Sound system is amazing. Some maintenance parts may be extremely expensive to fix, but so far our vehicle has had general maintenance. We haven't had any breakdown issues. Back trunk is very spacious as well, beneficial for carrying bulk items, vacationing, etc.

The little Prius can pack a lot in!

Or being a small car, I have tons space four hauling things. I like the gas mileage. One thing that I have a problem with is that the speedometer reflects up on my windshield right in my line of vision at night. That makes it difficult to drive at night! But this is an older model. Also the headlights to be replaced are very expensive, like $300 each. But after 11 years I finally have to change one. I have 160, 000 miles and have had little problems.

NHTSA Campaign:
09V388000
Summary:
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2004-2010 PASSENGER VEHICLES. THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL CAN GET STUCK IN THE WIDE OPEN POSITION DUE TO ITS BEING TRAPPED BY AN UNSECURED OR INCOMPATIBLE DRIVER'S FLOOR MAT.

Steering Nov 14, 2012
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 14, 2012
NHTSA Campaign:
12V537000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004-2009 Prius vehicles manufactured August 5, 2003, through March 30, 2009. The affected vehicles have a steering intermediate extension shaft assembly built with metal splines that complete the connection from the steering wheel to the steering gear. These splines may have been manufactured with an insufficient hardness.
Consequence:
Over time, the splines may wear and eventually fail resulting in a loss of steering ability, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the extension shaft and replace it if it is one with insufficient hardness, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2012. Owners may contact their Toyota dealer or the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
Engine And Engine Cooling Nov 14, 2012
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 14, 2012
NHTSA Campaign:
12V536000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2004-2009 Prius vehicles manufactured August 6, 2003, through March 30, 2009 and FCHV-adv vehicles manufactured December 12, 2008, through September 13, 2011. During manufacturing, a scratch may have occurred inside of the electrically driven water pump at the coil wire. The coil wire may corrode at the scratched portion.
Consequence:
The corroded coil wire may break and the water pump could stop. The corroded coil wire could cause a short circuit between coil wires and a possible open fuse, creating a stall-like condition of the hybrid system while the vehicle is being driven. This may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify its owners, and dealers will replace the electric water pump, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact their Toyota dealer or the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
