Drives and handles good. Gas saver.


Small cargo area


Great Little Car. Very Reliable Transportation — It looks small, but you don't feel that while you drive the car. It handles very good. Braking system is perfect. Around $25-28 to fill the tank. I love the gas mileage that this car gets. It is around 42-44 MPG.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

they're not the cheapest car available so everyone doesn't have one


Love My Classic Prius — I have always loved everything about this car and now that fuel is getting pricey, I'm even happier. This car goes as fast as I want to, and more importantly, when I'm stuck in traffic the emissions are zero.

2003 Toyota Prius Base Review

Replaced A '91 Camry And Backup Is '01 Echo, Prius Is Great — Our '91, manual transmission Camry, 32 MPG, was lost in an auto accident. So for a month, I drove our '01 Echo, a nice goin' for groceries car. But the used, '03 Prius has been a step above both cars: 1) quieter - a smaller engine and more time using electric motors 2) efficient - averaging 52 MPG over 30,000 miles 3) creature comforts - electric everything The seats are at the right height but could do with more tilt options. Also, the North American model does not have rear folding seats like the European and Japanese models (but Echo rear seats may work.) Still, it very comfortable for cross country trips because the lack of vibration and noise makes it a comfortable ride. Bob Wilson
