Prius - good but weak spots.

2012 Toyota Prius Five

It is a great, solid, reliable car. The back window is ridiculously small and hard to see through, but it has a backup cam, which I find hard to adjust to. The interior is also crazy dark. If you drop something at night and turn on the interior light, it is still impossible to see anything. Overall, I think the backseat and hatch are very roomy. I have fit a surprising amount of furniture in my car. Gas mileage is good but I do not see a huge difference between the echo and the Prius. Even though the echo was not a hybrid.

Love the reliability and gas mileage of our Prius!

2012 Toyota Prius Five

My 2012 Toyota Prius has been incredibly reliable since we purchased it in 2013 with under 20000 miles on it. We have kept up regular maintenance through the dealership, and needed little to no extra repairs. It now has just over 100,000 miles and drives the same as the day we got it.
