    2004 Toyota Camry Solara

    2004 Solara

    Pros: reliability

    Cons: pulls to the left slightly

    Bought this car new in November of 2003 and it has never missed a beat since. It now has 116k miles on it and I keep looking at new cars but this still has everything I need and still doesn't miss a beat. I'm disappointed that the new cars I'm looking at mostly don't have fold down rear seats ... this is very roomy. They get mediocre mileage ... this gets 22 city, 30+ hwy. Etc.

    2007 Toyota Corolla

    Great little car! Takes me wherever I want to go in comfort, with excellent gas miliage. Unlike other behemoths on the road, this car is zippy, handles very well around turns,and road obsticles. Fun to drive at lower cost than most other vehicles.

    2007 Toyota Prius

    Good fuel economy but overall value?

    Pros: Reliable, gas consumption, cargo capacity

    Cons: Cost-initial nad disappointg trade-in

    1) The advtg of good fuel economy 45 mpg over 38500 over 3.25 yrs, mostly hwy miles, is lost taking into consideration 2) the initial price being 2000$ more than a conventional engine (non-hybrid) comparable Honda or Toyota car and 3) ins rate is higher for the Prius (State Farm, rural area, 65 yr old owner w excellent driving record) than for a new Subaru Forester 4) The Priu was reliable excpt for needing a new 12 V (not the 4,000$ or so hybrid battery) battery within a yr of purchase. 5) Resale value was utterly disappointing. Thanks to moderate gas price and Toyota's tarnished reputn, I got NOT A SINGLE offer after having advtd on cars.com for 4 months. The dealer's trade-in was also disappointingly low. Summary: My experience over 3.25 yrs of ownership shows there are better values than a Prius. Consumers Reports calculates that it'd take 8 yrs of use @15,000 miles per yr w gas at current prices, to recover the higher purch price. I'm a tree lover but not at this cost.

    2010 Toyota Prius

    A great Car

    2009 Toyota Prius

    Cons: Very little 'do-it-yourself' maintenance possible
