A Great Choice For Gas Price Or Environmentally Concious — The car is simply wonderful and will appeal to any technophile, environmentalist or economical person. I am very happy with all the high-tech features this car has standards, that others only get in a luxury car (bluetooth phone integration, lcd dashboard screen, rear back-up cam, auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, keyless RF entry and ignition, etc.) Some people complain that the gas milage is no different, but you have to learn how to drive the car to get the full benefits of the electric motor. I easily average between 45 and 55 mpg (depending how much city/highway I do). If you are futilely zipping from red light to red light as fast as you can - the gas mileage will not be any better than any other vehicle.

Love My Prius — We have had this Toyota Prius for two years and still love it. It gets 53 mpg in the summer and 45 mpg in the winter overall. The fit and finish is impeccable. We've had not one single thing wrong with the vehicle since we've owned it and would highly recommend it. It's quiet, very zippy, good handling. No rattles. It's fun to drive and I don't feel guilty driving around!

2007 Toyota Prius 4 Dr Review — Gas mileage is unbelievable but rear visibility isn't that great. It handles nicely but lacks power, and the brakes are a little touchy. And while the exterior styling isn't perfect, the interior makes up for it. Not a bad car if yoiu are looking for a hybrid.

My Prius — I am laughing all the way to the pump. 50 mpg, gotta love it!! Car runs great, takes a little to get use too. Considering how small it is, the car is very roomy. For only having a 4 cylinder engine, the car has a lot of get up and go when you step on the gas.

Pros

Well designed and reliable for such a complex system.
There are a few independent shops in major cities that can reliably diagnose and repair the Prius.

Cons

Systems are understandably complex and beyond the repair ability of most non dealer shops/service mechanics. The dealers are frequently unable to properly diagnose problems correctly and too quick to blame problems on the most expensive Hybrid system components, ie. HV battery or power converter, etc. Owners need to become informed about the possible problems, though rear,. or find a reliable independent shops. Or subscribe to the very good Prius forums online, such as Prius Chat.

Prius Is Great, Very Hi-tech, Well Designed. — I started with a Gen1, 2002 Prius with almost 300,000 miles but ran great with only the need of replacement of the OEM12 volt battery. However, the one time I had a system warning light Iite (Tiangle of Death). I took it to the dealer and they told me to they would have to replace the HV Traction battery, for almost $3500 (more than i paid for the car). Took it home and went on line, read the manuals and did my own testing. Traced problem to the 12 volt battery having low voltage and corroded connections. Used jumper battery to prove that this was the problem and it was. Replaced the 12 volt with Optima Yellow Top and never hand another problem. Have since sold that car to a friend and she loves it (once she got beyond the concern about the high mileage) and "just enjoy" the fine ride. I now have a 2007 Gen2 Prius that I am in the process of converting to Plug-in-Hybrid/EV. Steve

Pros

Smooth ride and control response.
Epic gas mileage.

Cons

It's a computer that could be mistaken for a car to the untrained eye.
Drive-by-wire controls mean no feedback.
The amazing fuel economy will probably never cover the premium you will pay for an overpriced hybrid.

Buy It If You Absolutely Must Have The Best Fuel Economy, Or Want To Present An Eco-frienldy Image. — I started my Driver’s Education class in the summer of 2008, and after a couple hours of class work, my instructor put me at the wheel of a brand new Prius. This example was designed specifically for driving instruction, since it had a second brake pedal for the passenger and “Student Driver” decals along the sides. My initial snail-pace cruise around the parking lot was, at that moment, the most fun I had ever had in my life. I relished the feeling of being in total control (save for the occasional stomp on the passenger-brake by my instructor when we got too close to a curb). The experience of driving a modern hybrid was a bit disconcerting for me as a novice driver. Most of the traditionally mechanical controls were electronic in the Prius. The parking brake, gear selector, and starter were all buttons on the dashboard. Speed was indicated by a digital display, and the tachometer was absent entirely. Acceleration was silent (until the gas engine started), and the brake pedal provided no feedback. Driving the Prius felt more like operating a computer than controlling a vehicle. The Prius had a back-up camera to make up for its poor rearward visibility, but since this was a luxury most cars didn’t have, the instructor kept a towel draped over the screen, requiring me to turn around and look out the split rear window to reverse. It was only after driving my Mom’s Corolla that I finally got accustomed to what it felt like to drive a "real" car. This car was not one that I would ever choose to drive of my own free will, but it provided a door into a world that I would soon fall in love with, and so I have developed a respect for it (with mild reservations).

Fantastic mileage and very spacious car

Fantastic Car — Excellent car with great mileage and fantastic looks. The single owner factor is critical as the family has handled the vehicle with great care. The power is excellent does not present any challenge for fast ramp ups. The surprise element is the hatchback gives it a huge amount of space making it a true utility vehicle as well.

Toyota Prius Rocks! — This is the most awesome car on the road today. It's got a unique style, makes a statement about me, and saves me loads of money with gas near 4.00 a gallon. I love my Prius. She's beautiful and is a pleasure to drive. First of all, it's quiet - you can only hear her at select times. It hasn't needed any repairs at all, just keep up with the maintenance on it (oil changes, battery checks). Interiors are extremely nice, they've got that Toyota quality right in there, and the exterior is gorgeous. It takes a while to get used to, but you love them once you do. I get around 48mpg everywhere, and if I alter my driving style I can get better. It's hard to maximize the mileage because of all the other assholes on the road. It is so fun to drive! There are lots of bells and whistles and you can go for a Sunday drive and not feel guilty because you are using less gas than most people.

2007 Touring Edition Is Worth It! — I just purchased a fully loaded 2007 Prius Touring model and I cannot say enough good things about it. I started taking Prius test drives in 2004, but the one I took last week (Jan 28, 2007) made me want to buy it immediately. The ride is smooth, the acceleration and noise levels reduced, the stylish rear bumper and larger interior space makes the Prius arrive as a REAL CAR! Other drivers on the road including Prius drivers will be gawking at you as you drive it down the road. I love the navigation system and the fact that all of my passengers are protected by front and rear curtain air bags. I have heard that the 2008 model will change significantly but feel that the 2007 Touring model of this fine Prius genre will remain a cult car. -Ken Graham Napa, CA

Pros

Engine Break gear is handy and saves the brakes when on steep hills. Cruise control maintains speed on the steepest of hills.

Cons

I really have nothing negative to say about it.

Very Dependable And Fun Car To Drive And The 41.4 Overall Average Miles Per Gallon Can't Be Beat. — I really like the engine break gear when traveling over the Sierra's. When I put on the cruise control, the Prius maintains its speed even on the steepest of hills. Its aerodynamic design handles the high winds extremely well. The constant consumption and energy guidance system trained me to not jack rabbit start and stop, improving miles per gallon and making the brakes last longer.
