vehicle that's environmentally conscious and saves a lot on gas, sleek design

2010 Toyota Prius I

My car is very reliable when it comes to most qualities. The gas mileage is beyond amazing, it only costs about 25$ to fill up my entire tank, and I can make 10$ in gas last an entire week driving all around town! Driving this car is very smooth and it is extremely quiet it's almost sometimes annoying because people in parking lots won't hear me. The downside is that the car is very low to the ground so going through any bigger puddles sounds terrifying like the bottom of your car is getting scraped off and maintenance on the car can add up to be a lot because oil changes ect require special more expensive options. Overall a great car and I've had this car since 2016 ( used ) with no issues!

Pretty good car but not sure if the 'eco' features live up to the hype.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I like the gas mileage. It doesn't require much maintenance. I'm not sure how much benefit I actually get from the regen braking feature though. It has 'eco mode' and 'power mode', and 'EV mode'. The last is hardly ever usable unless you're going very slow (under 10 mph). Eco mode uses less gas but the car accelerates slower. Power mode is my favorite, the car uses more gas but it accelerates quickly. The car features good AC, aux cord music system, all the features of a typical sedan. It's bigger than you might expect inside from the reputation of the Prius brand is that they're small.

- Rachael L

Prius is great for comfort and adventure!

2010 Toyota Prius I

The Prius is a great practical car. I love that it only takes about $20 to fill it up with gas and it lasts me ages! It has all the features I could ask for, extremely comfortable, easy to drive, and surprisingly roomy for how compact the car is. I am able to fit my kayak on top, with a dog, bike and husband inside! The only thing I don't like is the window configuration. For such a small car, there are some horrible blind spots.

- Jenny K

Eco Friendly and Reliable Car

2010 Toyota Prius I

The car is very reliable and comfortable. It has a nice panel in the front with easy to access buttons to control the cabin temperature and the radio. So far, the only problems with the car has been taking the car to be fixed for a few recalls. The fabric seats has kept up well and there is no fading inside or outside of the car yet. The MPG is still good after many years, with no noticeable decrease in mileage.

- Amy W

Fast. Small. Cute. Driveable.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Once I put my hand on my door knob my car automatically unlocks I have a push start. Lately my car has not been getting as good of gas mileage does it usually get. My windows do not roll fact I want to go back up. My powers start gives me the access to have a quick acceleration. It gets me around places and other than that I really do not have any problems with it especially with the ac being in Florida.

- Angie B

An efficient car to save money.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I love my Prius. It is completely suited to my needs and has no excessive features. It goes relatively fast for the price and I don't have to pay nearly as much for gas as others. A few of the problems it has is that it has a lot of blind spots, which makes it difficult to see around the car. Overall, I really like the car and it saves me money like no other car of this price could.

- Olivia T

The Prius is a money saver

2010 Toyota Prius I

I recently switched to driving the Prius. It does great with gas mileage, especially when living in the city. When I am sitting in standstill traffic, I am not using any gas. I usually have to fill the small tank every 2- 2.5 weeks, which is definitely cost effective. I only wish the engine had more power especially when going up hills or merging on to the highway

- Katie L

Nice Prius... said nobody. Fuel efficiency > comfort

2010 Toyota Prius I

I like that it's great on gas mileage. As for comfort I like that it's a smaller car. I don't like that there is no pick up to it and people on the road do not respect you and you're constantly being cut off. I don't like how noisy it is. You have to turn the radio way up to overpower the noise of the tires. I do like that historically it is a very safe car.

- Jessica M

My car is awesome and it saves me a lot of money on gas.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I love my car. Never had any major. Issues with it except for basic maintenance. Since I drive a lot in long distances, I love the eco friendly aspect and you save a lot on gas. The car is also really quiet so you never know it is on unless you are driving. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who drives a lot and wants to save money on gas..

- Liana M

The good and the bad and the ugly

2010 Toyota Prius I

This car is very reliable and the gas mileage is amazing. I love driving it on the highway the most. Starting and stopping the car they way that you do while driving in the city is slow. The Bluetooth does not connect automatically all of the time and this is the only annoying aspect of the car. Overall, I enjoy driving this car.

- Amy W

The car can be slow but it is cost efficient and good for the earth

2010 Toyota Prius I

The car accelerates very slow and creates problems on the road amongst other drivers, the length of my commute, other riders in my car. I always have to leave the house a bit early. I suppose it is gas efficient and it's quiet but it's not smooth it is a very sensitive car and I can feel every nook and cranny on the road

- Puja P

Prius pretty good but not perfect.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Love the mileage. Love the amount we can carry and that we can seat up to 5 passengers. Do not like the proprietary GPS [don't get one from Toyota!]. Hate the rear visibility and dislike backing up, in part because the back-up camera is old-school. Looking for camera and other safety feature updates in newer models.

- Nancy G

Very quiet, comfortable, and reliable.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I have been really happy with this car. It has not had any problems or issues since I bought it. It is a 2010 so it does not really have the bells and whistles that newer models come with. Gas mileage is great. It is been very reliable. Only downside is the blind spot based on design of the car.

- Cassie C

Comfortable to drive and saves on gas, but doesn't handle weather well.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I have owned this car for over a year now. It's reliable and very fuel-efficient. A full tank will get you 415 miles. It is comfortable and easy to drive, with good control and turn radius. It does horrible in rain and snow, however. Drive slowly in weather, it tends to slide around a lot.

- Anonymous A

I take more vacations now!

2010 Toyota Prius I

My prius gets fantastic mileage when I run it on the battery/eco settings. . The only problem I have experienced is the fascia under the car is constantly coming loose, but it is a simple fix. Since I have owned my prius, I have been able to take more trips because of the great mileage.

- Katie C

Heated Seats Save Lives.. seriously

2010 Toyota Prius I

My Toyota Prius is the best car I have ever owned. It is reliable, great on gas mileage and has a few features I am truly grateful for (AC, Heated Seats, Sunroof + a hatchback). It certainly gets me where I need to go and is also extremely fun to camp in because of the hatchback.

- Ashley H

Low fuel prices & efficient driving machine

2010 Toyota Prius I

Purchased my vehicle used. Drove it from Brooklyn NY to Los Angeles CA. Love going to the gas station. Love the low maintenance that has been required over the years. Great handling. Easy to drive and park, especially in all of the compact parking spaces all over Los Angeles.

- Marc C

2010 Toyota Prius parts experience.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Parts for the Prius are outrageous. The navigation map system went and the dealership quoted us $3000 to replace it. They never suggested to update the map DVD which is all it probably needed to be done. We have had more recalls on this vehicle then any of our other vehicles.

- Sydney H

Trusted and reliable for everyday driving

2010 Toyota Prius I

My Toyota Prius was purchased used and currently has over 205,000 miles on it. Maintained, I have never really had any issues with my car. It does not do well in heavy, wet snow, but otherwise, drives fine in all weather conditions. I highly recommend driving a Toyota Prius.

- Anna-Therese K

Full efficient!! Low maintenance cost and drives well.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Energy efficient & saves money on gas. The performance is great! Drives quietly & offers a smooth ride. It is very reliable, the maintenance is inexpensive. It is fully loaded, heated seats, great brake system, seats 5 people. I dislike that it does not include a sunroof.

- Pamela D

Prius is an awesome car for anyone

2010 Toyota Prius I

No problems ever. Just regular maintenance needed. Awesome on gas and runs excellent. Love my car and would buy a new one again in a heartbeat. We take long trips regularly and have no comfort issues. Can also haul large things because of the hatchback and seats go down.

- Stephanie C

Pretty blue color and runs good.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Seat falling apart couple of recalls but it is good all and all. GPS needs upgrade Bluetooth does not always hook up to phone. Lots of mileage. Everyday wear and tear. Speaker not so loud. Cannot put stereo system in the car. Need new tires. Warranty has ended.

- Natalie M

Toyota Prius 2010 used automobile review.

2010 Toyota Prius I

None to speak of. Nothing to write home about. It gets excellent gas mileage and so far there haven; t been major maintenance costs. I would recommend Toyota Prius to anyone looking for a new or a used car especially anyone who may be looking for a hybrid car.

- Ed S

The gas mileages is wonderful.

2010 Toyota Prius I

The hybrid battery needs replacement and it's expensive. Other than that the car is great and peppy and get me where I need to go and I love the 49 miles to the gallon I get in gas. It is kind of small compared to some other cars that I have previously driven.

- Dave G

Expensive but efficient for commuters.

2010 Toyota Prius I

I love this car. Helpful data on my long commutes let me know how fuel efficiently I am driving so I can adjust. Handles well, breaks good. My only critique is the bumper of my and many others look a bit beat up from minor dings that are hidden on other cars.

- Megan F

White Prius. Good but not bad.

2010 Toyota Prius I

Brake lights, slide light and ABS light is on but no mechanic sees an issue. Not my most comfortable vehicle. No additional feature. Good gas mileage. There's a lot that I wish was better about this vehicle but it's really difficult to beat the gas mileage.
