Not all bad but room for improvement. No resale value?

Console is not comfortable, paint has started to peel even with regular care, the fuzzy dash is hard to clean and comes off if rubbed, the back seat is very uncomfortable for longer than 30 minutes with weird vent inside. The reason for purchase was the gas mileage and after 5 years the mileage has dropped steady rate. Also the tires seem to wear faster on this car then any other we have even when buying from dealer. The one thing I can say is we have not had any major issues only minor. We do regular maintenance at dealer. The most annoying issue is the headlights, They constantly blew out and we got no answer, I have been researching online for few years hoping a bulletin would come out because dealer said they didn't know what issue was. Headlights are $40 as we had to replace at least once a month. Finally this last year a replace order came out and they replaced the wiring. We have still had to replace once since then but it's better. I would like if the blind spots on the front window were better I do not like my teenagers to drive it because of them.

Pros and Cons of a Prius owner.

I love the gas mileage on the vehicle, with that said, I do miss extra space in the hatch area. The back seat has a lot of legroom and the front is fairly comfortable until you look for a space to put your purse - on the floor on the passenger side. I wish I had a sunroof, but this model does not. It performs extremely well in all conditions just a bit slow off the line. I am not a fan of the fabric on the seats; not easy to clean. I have WeatherTech mats and they really help to keep the floor clean. It has an average stereo system. I also appreciate the beeping when backing up. The car is quiet, so you do have to be careful not to leave the car and leave it running. Overall the car is great on gas, rides smooth, has good seating space, but lacks cargo space. It is great for everyday use and a long trip for two people without a lot of luggage.

Roominess. Cargo area. Gas savings. Well designed interior. Comfort.

I used to drive to/from work M-F and used to put a minimum of 350 miles per week on my car. Oh my gosh, has the Prius ever saved me gas money. This is my second Prius, the first was a 2006. I loved that car down to the cup holders. Now I am a full time artist (fine art) and large canvases, such as 3 ft. x 3 ft. and 30" x 40" fit into the hatchback when both seats are lowered. There's even room for these sizes when they are framed. You wouldn't believe what I've packed into my Prius. Once, for a tent art show, I packed all of my stainless steel display stands (for a 10' x 10' booth. Two 6' folding tables, tablecloths and hangers, and so much framed art measuring 20" x 24" and smaller. Even included two boxes of my images blank greeting cards.
