Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
I have no doubt I would give the overall rating of this car 5 stars were it not for the arrogance of the manufacturer to own up to problems and provided quality customer service. But, Toyota, like most auto manufacturers is only interested in the bottom line and will ignore known problems, even try to hide them. This car is superb in so many ways, that it is disgusting the manufacturer would allow ill will to exist on peripheral issues. Our big issue is the abominable navigation system.
Love IT! The ride is so quiet and smooth. Plenty of power and solid feel. Electronics are great - lots of info and links to my phone seamlessly. I have a 40 mile (RT) commute and I'm still on my first tank of gas after 4 1/2 months!
The overall quality of the Volt is well above average for a Chevrolet car of any kind. The drive is very smooth, a little eerie how quite it is, acceleration is good and the brakes are strong. Body roll is low and handling is overall impressive considering the hard compound tires and eco nature of the car. It is nice having the 2 screens with more information than you could want. With the tax incentives factored in the car is a great price. I have only put gas in it 3 times in 8 months!
This New Version of the 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!!!!!!! I Love it, I Want it & I Gotta' Have it; Forever!!!
Size is perfect. Plenty of cabin room for 4 adults. Lots of head room. Only car close is the Bentley GTC for $130K more. I'll take the E350A.
The Prius has generally exceeded my expectations from the MPG perspective. During the summer I tend to see averages around 52-53 and during the winter 45. Overall the car is comfortable and is holding together very well. The best part is the fill-up. Even at the higher gas prices I rarely put in more that $40.
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.
