Prius: great features less comfort.

2013 Toyota Prius Base

The best thing about the car is it is energy efficiency, up to 50 mpg. The interior comfort is not as comfortable as I would like: cloth seats are difficult for sliding in and out and harder to keep clean than leather or other slick material. Also the car is low to the ground which make it less comfortable when one is older as am I. The car runs really quietly and it is a hatchback which is great for cargo. Also it is equipped with Bluetooth which is great.

Fun, reliable & safe Prius: great car for the money.

2013 Toyota Prius Base

Very reliable, roomy & safe. Nothing in the way of any mechanical issues. Car has indicators for when service is needed. Like anything else, the more you treat the vehicle as the manufacturer suggest, you'll have no problem. Space: does not seem like a lot of space inside, but looks can be deceiving...The amount of room in this car is amazing! Very comfortable most almost any size person.

My Royal Blue Prius is a pretty little car.

2013 Toyota Prius Base

I have had no problems with my Prius. It is kind of small but it gets good gas mileage around 50 mpg. It has a backup camera which I love and it also has sensors with a beeper to let you know when you go over the line in the roads. It will automatically slow the car down when you get too close to other cars. It also has a great stereo sound. I love it!

Toyota Prius rave reviews

2013 Toyota Prius Base

I don't have any issues with my current vehicle. I love everything about it and would recommend this vehicle to anyone considering it. Buying a Toyota Prius is one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire life. I've saved so much money on gas, and it's so smooth and comfortable to drive and for being a small car, it has tons of storage space

The car that keeps on going

2013 Toyota Prius Base

My Toyota Prius is a fantastic car. The gas mileage is great at about 45 miles per gallon and it's been going past the 200k mile mark. It features a backup camera, blind spots detection, and the rest of the usual safety features found on cars these days. It also has a pretty spacious interior, however it's not the most luxurious car out there.

- Bob A

Great car good mileage with advanced features.

2013 Toyota Prius Base

Great gas mileage very comfortable great technology good pickup good storage seats five easily. Great glove compartments great maintenance by local dealer. Great last as well as tires. Good radio and CD player I average over 44 miles per gallon. Back seats drop down to make possible hauling large items.

The Plug In Prius, the positive and the negative

2013 Toyota Prius Base

This vehicle gets amazing mileage. It drives well in a couple inches of snow. The plug in feature proves about 10 miles on an electric charge. The only drawbacks are that the interior stains easily, and it is prone to dents and dings. I have had a couple fender benders and the damage is very noticeable.

- Jill K

The fuel economy is an incredible 50 mpg.

2013 Toyota Prius Base

The only problem I can find with my Prius is the seats are not comfortable on long trips, but I have back problems anyway. The Prius is smaller than I am accustomed to. The front plastic bumpers are starting to chip paint and I am not happy about that because otherwise the body is in perfect condition.

- Marie T

Great on gas and much roomier than you would think!

2013 Toyota Prius Base

The only reason I did not give five stars is because the underpinning of my vehicle is constantly falling. I have also had slight issues with the back bumper staying snapped in completely. I owned a 2008 model previously and never experienced these issues.
