Toyota Prius is perfect! Surprisingly roomy with outstanding gas mileage.

The Toyota Prius has been an exceptionally reliable car. No problems since we purchased it as a used car. The car has excellent pick-up power. I was worried if there would be problems with city driving but I have had no problems keeping up with city traffic. Surprisingly, I have no problems starting the car in the January, February, march months in the state of Minnesota. It does take a little longer than I would like for the car to warm up in below zero mornings. The bar between the back window and hatch if a little difficult to see out the back window. At first, I didn't like the "tinny" sound of the doors when closing but I have gotten used to it. I guess that is the price you pay when you need the car to be as light as possible for miles per hour efficiencies.

A car great for families and young drivers.

This is honestly a great car. I am a college student and it is mileage, as a hybrid, makes it so I do not have to buy gas as often and when I do, it is not too expensive. The car is very comfortable and easy to drive. It is a hatchback trunk which helps provide space because the trunk is not very large. The back seat has a lot of room, as does the front seat. The dashboard has an energy monitor that helps you determine how your energy is being used (gas or electric). If handled well, the Prius is able to use all electric energy for speeds up to 45 mph. I drove from Florida to New Jersey in this car and would happily do it again. I recommend this car to families and young drivers.

The money I have saved in gas makes the payments!

Bought the Prius about 2-3 years ago and I love it. I got the Prius 4 trim which comes with heated leather seats and satellite radio with navigation. It may not look it but it is spacious and comfortable inside and plenty of trunk space. I have made many trips to Ikea and have had no issues loading it up. Cannot beat the gas mileage too. Have saved a ton of money on gas. There's not a whole lot of power (you are not going to win any races except maybe against another Prius) but there's plenty for everyday driving through traffic and freeways. Have had problems with it at all. Toyota's are very reliable and the Prius is no exception.
