Cons: REAR VISIONThe Prius has been a joy to own and drive. It is more than adequate for high-speed merging and handles well at all speeds. Our mileage for the entire time we have owned it has been over 40 MPG. The space available for luggage is large enough to take golf clubs and go away for 6 weeks. Love the 'hidden space' in back.
They can do better
Pros: Good mileage
Cons: Hard ride.Wonderful car to drive. Good turning radius and easy to like. Car rides very stiff and is too low to ground to clear parking chocks. Have had to replace fender shields due to low profile. Good mileage as advertised and very serviceable. Do not understand hard ride.l Could be improved with better shocks and raising level above ground.
Cons: BACK WINDOW VIEWThis car has delivered and MORE. The hatch back is a great feature, without it I would have purchased a Honda Civic .
Best I have had - - since 1950!
Pros: Hybrid Drive - - wish it was all-electric
Cons: no dislikesA nice vehicle, larger inside than it looks. Controls are easy, once you learn to start & shift with the brake on. Recalls have been trivial.
Best Car I Ever Owned: Prius
Pros: 52 MPG on the highway, fully loaded with people and cargo
Cons: Glove compartment finish on 2005 model scratches easilyAs kids we thought of taking energy from braking with generators, be we couldn't control the process fast enough with mechanical switching. 30= years later fast microcomputers made it all controllable. Besides the excellent technology, the appointments, gadgets, and performance are great. Traction control on ice and hard pack snow is marvelous. This is bar-none the best vehicle I have ever owned in my 45 years of driving.
Pros: automatic cooling in summer
Cons: no power seathas all the features I wish were on the 2008 prius I previously owned. fantastic mileage more power better power in power mode
Pros: hybrid technology
Cons: The car gets buffeted In high windsMy 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
