Uncomfortable for long trips

2012 Toyota Prius Three

It is very good on gas and uncomfortable in any drive over an hour or so. I feel like an old person when I get out after driving it for long periods. But great gas mileage. It has been a reliable car with no major breakdowns and it has 150,000 miles on it now. Have only done the standard maintenance on it including shocks and brakes otherwise that is it really.

Fill Up Once A Month Prius

2012 Toyota Prius Three

The Prius is very reliable and has good performance. So far, I haven't had major issues with the car. I only had to change the battery once. The gas mileage is great. I enjoy the sunroof and keyless entry. It has a backup camera and Bluetooth connectivity.
