Pros: Fuel Economy
Cons: Very little 'do-it-yourself' maintenance possibleLove the car! Very roomy & comfortable. Plenty of zip when needed. I smile everytime I pull into the gas station.
My favorite ever
Pros: quiet ride low gas
Cons: automaticWonderful car great service
I Love My Prius!
Pros: The seats!
Cons: There is nothing I don't like about my car.My Prius is very comfortable, (I'm 5'6' and a bit overweight). I have the leather seats and it is a IV model. All the gadgets are cool and it runs very well. Wonderful on gas, 50+ mpg. For a small car it is great, doesn't feel small inside. My 6'4' cousin rode in it and was comfortable.
Practical Commuter Car
Pros: Gas Mileage
Cons: Lack of PowerGreat on gas and comfort. Easy to maintain and a quiet, comfortable drive. It has all of the features you want in a commuter car. Don't look for performance, you're not taking anyone off a stop light or a freeway entrance.
66 years experience
Cons: nothingFinally found the perfect sensible car.....
Pros: It's a hybrid
Cons: It's a hybridI love Toyota's Camry so I decided to buy a used hybrid (2007) for the good gas mileage. I did a 10 minute test drive but failed to recognize a slight hesitation during the transition from the battery to the gasoline engine. If felt like the car was skipping and needs attention. Toyota said that was natural for all hybrids. I sold it and returned to my more comfortable but less economical SUV Ford Explorer.
Milage with comfort
Cons: Less luxury than wife's Lexus39-40 MPG highway; 36 city with the comfort of a larger car.
