    2005 Toyota Prius

    Does what it is supposed to do.

    Pros: Ingenious hybrid drive

    Cons: Driver has so little control, just stab and steer.

    Extremely relibile and when driving on mountain roads gets up to 55mpg. The wide windshield pillars are a hazard. The claims are made about safety even telling me that the creep in drive and reverse are for safety.

    2007 Toyota Prius

    Good fuel economy but overall value?

    Pros: Reliable, gas consumption, cargo capacity

    Cons: Cost-initial nad disappointg trade-in

    1) The advtg of good fuel economy 45 mpg over 38500 over 3.25 yrs, mostly hwy miles, is lost taking into consideration 2) the initial price being 2000$ more than a conventional engine (non-hybrid) comparable Honda or Toyota car and 3) ins rate is higher for the Prius (State Farm, rural area, 65 yr old owner w excellent driving record) than for a new Subaru Forester 4) The Priu was reliable excpt for needing a new 12 V (not the 4,000$ or so hybrid battery) battery within a yr of purchase. 5) Resale value was utterly disappointing. Thanks to moderate gas price and Toyota's tarnished reputn, I got NOT A SINGLE offer after having advtd on cars.com for 4 months. The dealer's trade-in was also disappointingly low. Summary: My experience over 3.25 yrs of ownership shows there are better values than a Prius. Consumers Reports calculates that it'd take 8 yrs of use @15,000 miles per yr w gas at current prices, to recover the higher purch price. I'm a tree lover but not at this cost.

    2010 Toyota Prius

    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.

    2010 Toyota Prius

    Practical Commuter Car

    Pros: Gas Mileage

    Cons: Lack of Power

    Great 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.
