Cute If You're Into It, You Can Run It Into The Ground. — My prius had to have been one of the greatest purchases I've made in my life. Although it is not a luxury car, you can count on it to get you from point A to point B. Not only that there is a fair amount of cargo space in the trunk, especially for such a small car that it is. I would not recommend this car to anyone trying to reinstate their masculinity, though. It's too cute.

Pros

Save gas, reliable and easy maintenance

Cons

Because it is a hybrid, you trade the gas savings with less speed power

Prius — This is a great car to own if you do a lot of commute. Switch to Prius because I was driving my friend's car for a while. Found out the savings I get from the gas. Maintenance cost is affordable, as you know Japan's car maintenance is not expensive. Great handling and did not have a complain at all.

Pros

Great Gas mileage and very comfortable for long trips. Tons of room for 2 to travel

Cons

Not the greatest on icy conditions. You must drive very slowly and carefully

Love It — Actually nothing negative except it doesn't have my wants and needs for right now. I prefer a sunroof and navigation, but without those two items, it is a great car. The last snow storm, we had to drive slow because it did slide if you are not careful.

Great Car — this car has the bells and whistles, automatic doors and windows, remote start, keyless entry, smart key technology, push button start and bluetooth. Nice to drive and no need to plug in like other fuel efficient vehicles. just gas and go.

Pros

The 2010 Prius 3 has a sleek appearance, handles beautifully, and gets unbelievable mileage (49 mpg on the highway!).

Cons

The back seats are a bit cramped and the car is expensive for its size category, but the benefits are worth the price.

Love It! — This was my very first car, and wow; did I get a great first car! I consistently get 45-51 mpg and the engine runs so quietly you never even notice it. The Prius drives smoothly and looks beautiful, to boot. Since it's a Toyota, I'll be able to drive it for years. I couldn't be happier with it.

Pros

I am loving the gas mileage! 400 miles for about $25 is great in my opinion.

Cons

There is very little power in the car when engaged in eco mode. part of the trade off for great gas mileage.

City Runner — I bought the car in May and have been driving it everywhere! within the first week i took it on a 400 mile road trip and was surprised that i didn't have to stop for gas till i reached my destination. I was very comfortable for the whole ride and enjoyed how well the car was overall. I can't even tell when the vehicle came in and out of electric mode unless I am stuck in traffic for longer then 5 mins. I would recommend this vehicle for anyone looking for a cheaper everyday car.

Great all around car.  Awesome gas mileage, good power for a hybrid, comfortable ride and nice features like the solar power roof (circulates air in car while car is off), rear camera, navigation system and eco/power modes.

Cons

Beeping noise (inside the car) when in reverse can get annoying.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned — My 2010 Prius III has been great! I bought it for the obvious reasons, I travel a lot and want a reliable car with great gas mileage. But it is so much more than that, it drives and responds well, comfortably seats four with room for cargo, has an engaging dash and lots of extras. I enjoy driving this car. The mileage is increadible, but unless I really make a point to use the dash displays to maximize your mileage (which you can), it rarely reaches 50 mpg but I'm not complaining. I've been getting 45-47 while traveling at highway speeds of 75mph plus. No real negatives. I suppose it would be nice to have a manual option and in my dream world it would drive and handle like a sports car. Love this Car!

Most Reliable Car You Can Buy. — Great car to own, best gas mileage you will ever get, very reliable, never brakes down. If you drive a lot this is the car to have; if you dont then you should still consider getting it. Absolutely Love it
