    2008 Toyota Prius - Standard

    The wife loves the proximity key feature. Great on gas and surprisingly roomy. I wasn't too happy with the style initially but it has grown on me. It's a little low on power but what do you expect. I am happy to be saving a lot on gas. I recommend this car, I will be buying another Prius when this one gives up.

    2008 Toyota Prius - Base

    Not going to win a lot of style points but for practicality in an era of $4 a gallon gasoline it's hard to beat. The car is actually pretty roomy for both passengers and cargo given it's MPG. The quality is great - I've never had a problem with it. And with it's hybrid electric/gas engine it has surprisingly nice pickup.

    2008 Toyota Prius

    An Excellent Vehicle

    Pros: MPG, interior size is excellent relative to exterior dimensions.

    Cons: Needing a front wheel bearing at 34k miles.

    The vehicle is comfortable and reliable. It's great on long trips. Blizzak tires in the winter cut down on fuel economy by 2 or 3 mpg, something I anticipated. Ethanol in gasoline cuts down mileage perhaps 6 to 10 percent, something that affects every driver (meaning that we are all subsidizing the ethanol industry with reduced mileage).

    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

    2008 Toyota Prius

    GREAT HYBRID VEHICLE, VERY PLEASED!

    Pros: Mileage

    Cons: noisey under acceleration

    My only complaints are: noisy under acceleration, telescopic steering wheel would make it even more comfortable and a seat that can be lowered and raised and the brakes are very touchy, not smooth and predictable. But very impressed otherwise, good value.
