The Prius is great in snow as it is a front wheel drive vehicle.

I love my Prius. It is fun to drive. I can pass trucks in the mountains so has plenty of get up and go. It gets 42 miles to the gallon. The only things I have had to replace in 160,000 miles are tires, one battery and windshield wiper blades. Checked my brake pads the last oil change and they are still like new as the way a Prius is designed is to use the system as brakes. It charges the big battery when I brake somehow also. It is not real comfortable on long trips but the mileage makes up for the less comfortable seats. I do need to get the headlights buffed as they are scratched looking and the dealership said they could do that for $100 I think to make them look new again. I have been told the big Prius battery should last 400,000 miles or more and I will keep this Prius for as long as it runs and then buy another one. You only change oil every 10,000 miles and rotate tire. I was told that it is the least expensive vehicle on the road today. Costs $.07 a mile to drive it. I love it when I fill it up. Has a 11 gallon tank and goes 400 miles without a fill up. I love the money I save with my Toyota Prius.

Toyota Prius: excellent for roaming the heart of la.

My Toyota Prius is a fine little car. Compact and easy to drive, especially on a casual basis without needing to worry so much about fuel economy. It performs just right I feel for an urban vehicle and can easily get you around a crowded city with, once again, great fuel economy. Performance has never been an issue with me, even with an older model (2010), and was able to maintain a very steady 90 mph for the whole duration of a recent 50+ hour road trip across the country. Once again I have to mention the great fuel economy for this hybrid, because for only $20 at the pump in the middle of la I can get a full tank and still outlast most tanks twice that size. I have never really had any problems with my Prius outside of wear and tear that would be typical for any vehicle, although sometimes, when the car is off the horn will beep 7 times out of the blue and I still haven't been able to figure out why it does that. It is a great car, very economical and plenty of power to get by.

Older Prius still performs and is fantastic value.

Absolutely love it. This compact hybrid is surprisingly roomy and offers lots of utility. I have had this car for about three years, put about 40, 000 miles on it and have had no major issues. The fuel economy is the main attraction, pulling 45 mpg highway, and slightly better in town. If I really baby it I can get 53 mpg in town. The back seats fold down and have enough room to fit plenty of whatever you need to carry. Fantastic work vehicle and every day driver. My only gripe is the driver's seat is not vertically adjustable and I am a tall guy, so my rear view mirror is sometimes in my way when I need to make a sharp right. I found out recently I couldn't jumpstart another car with it. Tried to help a stranded motorist about a week ago and I ended up having to give him a ride home because the 12 volt battery on board just does not have the juice to jump another car.
