I really like my car because it has been very reliable. I have not had any problems with my 2015 Prius since I got it. This is my second Prius, my first one was totaled by a flood we had in Virginia beach/Norfolk some years ago. The only problem I have had is that people keep running into my car and a rock hit my windshield so I had my windshield replaced. This car has a many features that I have never had before. It tells me the temperature outside, a camera for backing up. You cannot lock yourself out of the car because the car will not lock if you leave the keys in the car. The alarm sounds off.

Fantastic Prius with amazing gas mileage!

Love the vehicle but would like a little more comfort. The gas mileage is fantastic and it is very easy to drive and get in and out of small places. The car seats four adults comfortably but is a little tight with five people. The hatch back holds all the groceries I want and you can lay the back seats down to carry large items. I like the cover in the back, especially when we travel because we can slide the cover over our luggage and no one can see in. The cover is also removable and can lay in the back when you want to lay the back seats down.

I love my car! The gas mileage was the main concern when looking to purchase. It has been very dependable. Love driving it as it has enough power when I need it, such as passing on the interstate. I love the backup camera and the Bluetooth features. I also like the shifter position. I looked at some newer models of Prius but was really turned off by the relocation of the shifter. Like my 2015 much better. Also no complaints with the hatchback storage and those fold down seats are awesome. No complaints at all. I love driving my car.
