Prius Two: bad seats but overall good car with great reliability

2013 Toyota Prius Two

The car is very reliable. We actually bought it used. It was originally a rental car and even from the use of the other people it still runs well. The only thing I have to say is that the seats are uncomfortable. Even for myself as a 5'5' person on a long drive they become sometimes unbearable. I don't know if this is the same in the upper versions of the car, such as the three and four which have leather seating. But overall I love this car. I would buy another Prius in a minute but still love this one to death.

- Hannah L

Cute, fun, reliable, and efficient!

2013 Toyota Prius Two

I have never had a single problem with my vehicle. I love the great mileage and the dependability of the Prius. It's surprisingly roomy for being a small car, too! It handles well, also. If I had to say anything negative, I would say that it's only downside is that it's kind of annoying that they can never figure out how to turn off the maintenance light when I get my oil changed. However, I love that the vehicle lets me know when I have an oil change due because it's one less thing I have to keep track of!!

Affordable Turn-of-the-Century Commuting with All of the Bells and Whistles

2013 Toyota Prius Two

The vehicle performance far exceeds the expectations that were set in place before final purchase. In regards to reliability, comfort and features, this vehicle has warranted no electrical/mechanical issues or concerns and has proven to be quite spacious while offering various amenities/features for all to enjoy. The turbo feature assists for smooth transitions while cruising on highways or amongst heavily congested areas. Also, this vehicle allows for 5 individuals to be seated comfortably, yet safely.

- Cheryl R

Prius is a car worth buying.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

My car is comfortable for both driver and passenger even folks in the back seat say they have enough room. The hatchback makes hauling things a lot easier, so the small car feels big for storage. It is good on gas, maybe even great (I still average 50 mpg). I live in a busy area so it is easy to park both because of size and because it turns well. The backup camera works well, except for in the rain and snow. It also has plenty of pep for me around town.

- Alex V

Great vehicle, all dislikes are minor and more aesthetic.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

This car gets great gas mileage, in the summer a full tank gets me nearly 500 miles. It drives very smooth and it is very roomy for a compact car. I have had no issues with the way it runs or mechanical issues with in the 6 years I've used it other than the usual maintenance. I love that it has a back wiper. Only cons are that I don't love the beeping sound it makes when going in reverse and the radio interface feels dated and could be a improved.

- Sara S

The gas mileage makes it all worth it! I love my Prius!

2013 Toyota Prius Two

I love my Prius because it is extremely reliable. I never have to worry about it starting and getting me where I need to go. The gas mileage has saved me thousands of dollars. On the other side of the coin, it is frustrating that the general maintenance costs get so high when you reach the 100,000 mile range. The hybrid system takes a lot of care and money after a while. With that said, my next car will still be a Prius.

- Joe C

Prius life and sound is great

2013 Toyota Prius Two

I'm currently at 190,000 miles and I have experienced little to no issues in the five years I've owned this car. I've changed out the rear battery voluntarily to increase the capacity for my sound system. I may be one of only a few Prius owners with a 1400 watt system pulling the most heat from the 100 amp DC-DC converter. Besides the frequent and costly oil changes, my Prius has held up admirably over the years.

- Kevin L

We love our Prius! Economical and convenient.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

Great mileage, smooth handling. Comes with navigation GPS preloaded. Free sample of Sirius radio. Electric battery lasts for a very long time. Ample rear storage. Very comfortable seating even for three kids in the back. Hands free door unlock and ignition is super convenient especially in the winter. No need to remove gloves to fumble with keys. We absolutely love and cherish our Prius.

- Andrew T

Good, reliable and economical transportation.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

The Prius is actually the 2nd one I've owned. Like the first one the car is reliable, comfortable and performs better than other makes when bought new. I've had very few problems and all of them were minor. In addition the dealer service was good in spotting potential problems before they occurred and performed the necessary maintenance to avoid the issue.

- Matt K

The Toyota Prius is awesome!

2013 Toyota Prius Two

The Prius is super reliable. Super great on gas mileage. Very comfortable drive. I've never had any issues with this car. It's fantastic for road trips and great in the city. There's also lots of space in the back seat and in the trunk. Also comes with a great sound system. It's not the fastest car but it definitely does the job and will never fail you!

The stealth machine - so quiet people won't hear you coming.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

Haven't had any problems, though I do miss the back up camera I had on my last one. Gets great gas mileage. It's super quiet. Comfortable for both my 5'4' self and my husband's 6'4' frame. The dealership has also always treated us well. Oil changes and maintenance visits are timely. They even give you fancy coffee and cookies in the lobby!

- Sarah K

Smooth, compact, and fuel efficient

2013 Toyota Prius Two

What I love most about this car is the fuel-efficiency - I drive it about 20 miles a day (to and from work) and only have to fill up gas about once every 2.5 weeks! It runs really smoothly and quietly and is compact, which helps with parking. The dashboard is all digital, making it easy to see the important things while driving.

- Hila M

Safe - Reliable - Economical

2013 Toyota Prius Two

I love my Prius. It's safe and reliable for short and long trips. It's super easy to park in the city and gets great gas mileage no matter how long the trip is on any day. The size looks a lot smaller on the outside than it really is and people are always commenting how on much more spacious it feels when they get in.

- Angie C

One of the best cars for moving.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

It is a great car and I really have good experience driving it. Seats are roomy enough to make you comfortable. There aren't much leg room though. It is reliable but the car struggles while going uphill or downhill. Great cargo area. I could fit twin bed frame in the back with the back seats down.

Practical Prius- A Review of a Toyota Prius

2013 Toyota Prius Two

It is a nice looking car, nice dark gray metal but dents easily. Not the sturdiest car but definitely a practical one. It has air conditioning, nice leather seats, and an aux, Bluetooth, radio option for audio. Also has a built in GPS system. Reliable car and does not have any technical problems

- Kara X

Sleek looking black Prius with tan leather interior.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

Does not stop on a dime and does not do well in rain or snow. However, I love the gas mileage and the acceleration is pretty good. It is very comfortable for my needs, has enough space for storage of everyday items like groceries, and the leather makes it feel like a luxury vehicle.

- Colleen G

Great on gas and also a low profile vehicle.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

Great car and great gas mileage. Small enough to get good parking and big enough inside for cargo or people. Great for city commuting and also for road trips. Aside from that the battery has to be replaced at about 150,000 miles. Would recommend this car to anyone!

- Keenan S

The smooth driving has not diminished through the years.

2013 Toyota Prius Two

I experienced engine / starter problems earlier than I had expected. This appears to be very unusual, but was promptly resolved. Other than that, I have enjoyed this car far beyond any other I've owned. I do think it's overpriced despite my satisfaction with it.

- David L

Very fuel economic and spacious

2013 Toyota Prius Two

It's very comfortable and save. There is a recall for my vehicle currently that I haven't had fixed quite yet. But it runs great. I've had it for over 2 years - bought it used - the AC is starting to act weird. Other than that everything is perfect with my car

- Destiny R

Prius review of console compared to earlier version

2013 Toyota Prius Two

Performance is fine and reliability is good too. The console is difficult to use though and doesn't compare to the previous Prius we owned. It's not as intuitive and requires more steps than what we had before. Everything else is an improvement though.
