My 10 year old reliable Prius.
2007 Toyota Prius Base
The prius has been incredibly reliable and economical! My daughter bought it new and never experienced any difficulties while she drove it both for work and pleasure. I inherited the vehicle at about 60,000 miles and in the last 5-7 years I have driven another 100,000 miles on it. The vehicle fills up with less than $30. And the mileage per gallon is impressive. It is convenient on road trips due to its gas efficiency. This vehicle has only required regular maintenance.
Two problems have developed since I hit 150,000 miles on the odometer. First, occasionally the light on the dashboard turns off even when the car is running. Second, when the dashboard light goes off I can expect that I will experience difficulty in turn the car off! This has occurred at least six times in the past year. Each time this has happened, I google 'what to do if your a prius does not turn off.' apparently, this is an occurring issue with other prius owners as you will find a few tutorials from other prius owners who have experienced this problem and have recorded their remedies for possible solutions.
Overall, in spite of these recent inconveniences, I do recommend the Toyota prius abc ha do not noted that recent models are more jazzy and sporty-looking- a big more appealing than my early model.
