Pros

It's super reliable, quiet, and has enough zip to get you into traffic.

Cons

Even at my age 42 I wish it was more macho. I just bask in my quick and cheap gas station trips when it bothers me.

Its A Fine Car. I Would Recommend It To Others — There is nothing really wrong with this car. It's physics that are holding it back. It's 'just enough' and very reliable. Not a race car, not a hauler, great for in town commuting. Feel good if someone in your family gets one. Just hope you don't end up being the one driving it, it'll ruin your rep as a tuff guy.

Pros

Gas mileage and technology

Cons

Acceleration but it is to be expected.

My Prius — The Prius is great for what it is- a hybrid. I needed a car that got good gas mileage when I was driving 200 miles per day. I tend to average around 45 mpg. The acceleration is a bit slow but I have an IS F for that. The main thing is this car can go twice the distance of my 4runner approx. 500 miles on less than half the tank 10 gallons vs 23 gallons for the 4runner. If I don't have need for this car in the next 60 days I will be getting rid of it though.

No guts no glory, and you look like your Crunchy Granola type people!

It Does What It's Suppose To Do — It Does what it says it does, and all the tech gagets make it cool... I don't really like the look esp the liftback and the chrome tail lights. But it is the best MPG around! Cost of Ownership is what it's all about at this point.
