I get can get up to 60/mpg which is AMAZING. My husband drives a truck and spends almost 3x as much as I do each month on gas. My car is such a money saver.

I love my because of the good gas mileage it gets. Makes it totally worth it. The only two complaints I would have about it is 1.) it doesn't do great in the snow but I understand that is because it's so light so I usually weigh it down with sandbags and 2.) my seat isn't that comfortable. The headrest come forward in a weird way and I feel like my head is leaning forward. Also the seat doesn't have great lumbar support and I drive a lot so that can become uncomfortable. But the gas milage makes up for all of that.

Fuel efficient 2014 Toyota Prius.

This is an extremely fuel efficient car. It is a much more spacious car than it looks, it is comfortable for a family of four to five and for road trips. I have leather seats which are easy to clean. I also have the power locks and windows. It is easy to put a car seat and child in the car quickly. I like the two glove boxes, and the overhead lights inside the car. Sometimes the car slides in the rain even with brand new tires so I am not a fan of the anti slide feature.

Great gas mileage year round but a little lower in the winter.

Great gas mileage and can store a lot more than what people think. Also have not had any major issues on either Prius I have owned. Very easy vehicle to maintain. My family of four took a Prius to door county and had plenty of space and I am a tall man. In addition, the seats are very comfortable and the car handles very well in Wisconsin winter weather. I would recommend a Prius to anyone especially if commuting long distance.

Safety Recalls (2)

Electrical System > Software Feb 11, 2014
Report Receipt Date:
Feb 11, 2014
NHTSA Campaign:
14V053000
Summary:
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2010 through 2014 Prius vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) inside the inverter module (a component of the hybrid system) contains transistors that may become damaged from high operating temperatures. If this occurs, various warning lamps will be illuminated on the instrument panel and the vehicle will have reduced power allowing it to only drive a short distance.
Consequence:
The vehicle may enter a fail-safe/limp-home mode that limits the drivability of the vehicle. The hybrid system could also shut down completely resulting in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners and dealers will update the software for both the motor/generator control electronic control unit (ECU) and the hybrid control ECU, free of charge. If an owner experiences a failure of the inverter before the vehicle receives updated software, the dealer will repair or replace the inverter assembly with a new one at no charge. The recall began on March 21, 2014. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Hybrid Propulsion System Oct 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V684000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2010-2014 Toyota Prius and 2012-2014 Toyota Prius V vehicles. Excessive voltage in the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) within the inverter may cause the hybrid system to shut down, causing the vehicle to stall while being driven.
Consequence:
If the hybrid system shuts down unexpectedly, it can increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the motor/generator control electronic control unit (ECU) and the hybrid control ECU as necessary, free of charge. Interim notification letters were mailed on November 6, 2018. Owners will receive a second notice when the remedy becomes available. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is J0V. Note: The software updates in this recall are needed even if the vehicle had the software previously updated under recalls 14V-053 or 15V-449.
