    2008 Toyota Prius

    Great technology

    Pros: hybrid technology

    Cons: The car gets buffeted In high winds

    My 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

    2005 Toyota Prius

    Help save the earth

    Pros: average between 50 to 54 miles per gal., per tank of gas!!!

    Cons: nothing

    Very ahead of its time car! Runs on electric alot of the time, even on interstate! Engine shuts off every time you take foot off gas pedal, even on interstate, at red lights and stop signs to, unless battery needs charging are catalytic converter needs to be heated up for emissions! It is reported that it saves 2 tons of carbon a year in the air compaired to every day gas burning car!!!!

    2006 Toyota Prius

    Love my car; especially the mileage

    Pros: gas economy

    Cons: Couldn't get leather upholstery on model I wanted.

    Very manuverable, lots of speed, easy to care for. Great for hauling large purchases. Lots of room for so small a vehicle.

    2005 Toyota Prius

    Does what it is supposed to do.

    Pros: Ingenious hybrid drive

    Cons: Driver has so little control, just stab and steer.

    Extremely relibile and when driving on mountain roads gets up to 55mpg. The wide windshield pillars are a hazard. The claims are made about safety even telling me that the creep in drive and reverse are for safety.

    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.
