    2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

    Our Fusion has been a remarkable vehicle. It's quiet, refined,comfortable and can be fun to drive as well, due to the well sorted handling dynamics. Of course, one of the main reasons we purchased the car was its fuel economy. Over the past three years, we've averaged just over 35 mpg, but we've had many tanks that have returned well past the 40mpg range. Road trips go by with more stops for the restroom and refreshments than for fuel. The car has been completely trouble free so far.

    2011 Toyota Prius - Five

    The dealership has been a nightmare and Toyota U.S.A. does not really care about its customers it seems to me. I really like the solar roof and ventilation, as well as the large sunroof. The cruise control is fantastic because it keeps the car at a constant speed, even when going down steep hills due to the generators charging the batteries. The car is a good value, even at the price. I see the envy in peoples eyes at the gas pump. Overall I am glad I bought the car. Beware of dealers!

    2007 Toyota Prius - Touring

    This is an excellent vehicle. It is comfortable and roomy specially for cargo. With the back seats folded down you have more than enough room for carting anything around. There is plenty of head and leg room. The MPG is the best. I am getting 45 MPG after 5 years of long distance driving. This is not a sports car so yes the pick up is a bit slow but considering the MPG it is well worth it.

    2008 Toyota Prius - Standard

    The wife loves the proximity key feature. Great on gas and surprisingly roomy. I wasn't too happy with the style initially but it has grown on me. It's a little low on power but what do you expect. I am happy to be saving a lot on gas. I recommend this car, I will be buying another Prius when this one gives up.

    2008 Toyota Prius - Base

    Not going to win a lot of style points but for practicality in an era of $4 a gallon gasoline it's hard to beat. The car is actually pretty roomy for both passengers and cargo given it's MPG. The quality is great - I've never had a problem with it. And with it's hybrid electric/gas engine it has surprisingly nice pickup.

    2011 Honda Insight

    Pros: mpg and very helpful MID

    Cons: back seat space

    I have driven from Dallas to Orlando and back averaging 52 mpg. Another short trip from Houston to Dallas averaging 59 mpg. Overall I get between 52-54 mpg with 90% city and 10% hwy. Extremely pleased with my 2011 Insight LX. My fellow co-workers still can't believe this little Insight can do just as well as a 26K Prius for 6K less.
