Best I have had - - since 1950!
Pros: Hybrid Drive - - wish it was all-electric
Cons: no dislikesA nice vehicle, larger inside than it looks. Controls are easy, once you learn to start & shift with the brake on. Recalls have been trivial.
Best Car I Ever Owned: Prius
Pros: 52 MPG on the highway, fully loaded with people and cargo
Cons: Glove compartment finish on 2005 model scratches easilyAs kids we thought of taking energy from braking with generators, be we couldn't control the process fast enough with mechanical switching. 30= years later fast microcomputers made it all controllable. Besides the excellent technology, the appointments, gadgets, and performance are great. Traction control on ice and hard pack snow is marvelous. This is bar-none the best vehicle I have ever owned in my 45 years of driving.
Pros: automatic cooling in summer
Cons: no power seathas all the features I wish were on the 2008 prius I previously owned. fantastic mileage more power better power in power mode
Pros: hybrid technology
Cons: The car gets buffeted In high windsMy Prius is a level 6 with leather seats, navigation and all the bells and whistles available. The ride is comfortable with ample leg room in front and rear. I've driven 37000 miles with out any problems at all. The average MPG since we have this car is just under 48mpg. This is a leased vehicle and I am considering buying the car at the end of the lease
