    2009 Toyota Prius

    Dangerous on highway

    Pros: Gas mileage

    Cons: The car (performance, comfort, material quality)

    My Prius returns very good gas mileage but at a price. It is too slow to safely merge with freeway traffic. I can't pass anyone and I feel any accident may be my last (at speed). I will not buy another. The brakes are only fair and the car does not inspire confidence in spirited driving. Lastly, for what I paid I would expect a higher quality of materials in the interior.

    2009 Toyota Prius

    Pros: Fuel Economy

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

    Love the car! Very roomy & comfortable. Plenty of zip when needed. I smile everytime I pull into the gas station.

    2009 Toyota Prius

    Some what of a disappointment

    Pros: Economy

    Cons: ride

    I was able to spend several hours in a 2009 Toyota Prius, and was somewhat disappointed. Road noise was much louder than expected, and the ride was not as good as you would expect from a $26,000.00 car. It was not as refined as one might hope, considering all of the hype about how quiet the car is. Admittedly, the engine starting up was almost imperceptible , but there was a slight shake as the engine shut down at a light. The car seemed to wallow more than expected with three passengers, perhaps because of the weight of the battery. Performance was acceptable. My thoughts are that the car, considering how complex it is would be a good choice for those who trade in every few years. For those of us who keep their cars for years, and put well over 100,000 miles on them, the cost consequences of repair of the complex drive line, relays, battery, and controls might make considering a simpler, less complex fuel efficient design, such as the VW Diesel vehicles a more appropriate choice.
