The Prius has generally exceeded my expectations from the MPG perspective. During the summer I tend to see averages around 52-53 and during the winter 45. Overall the car is comfortable and is holding together very well. The best part is the fill-up. Even at the higher gas prices I rarely put in more that $40.
It's a hard top convertible. with the M-Sport pkg. In the iS it has a performance oriented firm ride, which makes for sometimes a jarring ride. (south-eastern PA roads) RFT tires don't add any suppleness to the suspension either. BUT, this is the most fun to drive, best looking (inside or out), best performing vehicle I have ever owned. Ultimate Driving Machine? You Bet! Oh, by the way, it has averaged 22.5 MPG in 20,000 miles of mainly suburban driving. The N-54 engine is sweet & powerful.
the gas millage was great and the space in the back seat was very good. the handling on the freeway was very bad and tracked into other lanes I was told road cond by Nissan the brakes quite when motor died and felt I was not ok.. I traded it off if these things did not happen and the car had a cruise control as std eq as well as a folding rear seat would make it a must have.
Great gas mileage, 30 to 34 MPG.. No mechanical problems for 7 years. Just now have OBD code P0171.
I have the2012 Elantra and am very pleased with the vehicle. I have attained as much as 45 mpg on a road trip. The only con I have is it is hard to see backing up, because of the design of th car. I drove from Va to California and was amazed at how comfortable I was after 2850 miles of driving. That was amazing for a small car. I have had absolutely no problems with the Elantra so far. I also feel that I got a lot for the price. If I had it to do over I would definitely buy this car again.
Wife uses car for work commute, excellent gas mileage. Nice design both outside and inside. Comfort very good on 4-5 hour drives visiting relatives. Had 1 problem with vehicle speed control and it was immediately fixed by dealer, otherwise we would have given 4 stars in performance. I am over 6 feet tall and find driver seat adjustments great! Overall we like this car very much.
Nice fuel efficient trouble free car. Its a bit small, but great for a family of 3
