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.
Great gas mileage, 30 to 34 MPG.. No mechanical problems for 7 years. Just now have OBD code P0171.
Nice fuel efficient trouble free car. Its a bit small, but great for a family of 3
Has gone through everything, been in a couple crashes/fender benders and even after not being serviced properly for years, keeps going and still 30mpg+ highway after 9 yrs and 220k miles!!!
Reliable, good fuel economy, roomy, sensible.
The dealership has been a nightmare and Toyota U.S.A. does not really care about its customers it seems to me. I really like the solar roof and ventilation, as well as the large sunroof. The cruise control is fantastic because it keeps the car at a constant speed, even when going down steep hills due to the generators charging the batteries. The car is a good value, even at the price. I see the envy in peoples eyes at the gas pump. Overall I am glad I bought the car. Beware of dealers!
