Pros

I purchased our 2010 Prius several months ago using this website to steer me toward the best available choices.  This car is extremely comfortable and deceptive in how much carrying capacity.  There is sufficient room for four adults and with the rear seat backs folded down, one can haul all kinds of stuff.  Having just had an small SUV for five years, I am not missing its hauling capacity.

Cons

I can't find anything I don't like about this car!

Great Prius — I especially liked the fact that this was a lease trade-in by someone who drove the car to and from work daily and gave it great care up until the time her new car was ready. I have gotten away from needing to have a current model when one that is two years old with 34K miles is available and saves me from absorbing first year's depreciation. I love the comfort of this car as well as the luxury of the way the Level 4 model is equipped. The fuel mileage is always at least in the high forties and most often shows 50-51 mpg. We drove from OH to ME several weeks ago in it and couldn't have been more pleased with it.

Overall one of the best vehicles I've ever driven or owned. Good things to say about it all around.

Cons

Limited rear visibility.

An Example For Future Auto Developers To Look Upon When Designing A Car. — What did you like or dislike about this car?The appearance of the car (3rd Generation Prius) is far better than its predecessors. The car is one of the most comfortable I've ever been in, suprisingly. Blind spots are obvious with this vehicles hatchback design, so if you're concerned about your ability to drive with limited vision, don't buy or complain about it. Decent level of road noise reduction. Maintenance on this car is extremely cheap, and gas mileage is amazing (48-57 mpg). Performance-wise, she isn't a hot-rod, and she's not a golf-cart. She's simply a very well designed commuter car that can get up and go, or sputter around town if you need her to.

Pros

Fuel economy is the best thing about it. (and saving the environment, of course)

Cons

Wheels need alignment and no one has the right settings to do it properly.

Halve Your Fuel Bill! — Great fuel economy. 5l/100km (20km/l) Had rust issues, but repaired (took a week) under warranty. Toyota reliability. Price is high on a new model. Look for 2nd hand. Has service plan, so no maintenance costs... yet... It is obviously under powered compared to most cars, but it's not meant to be raced or driven the way I do. Handling could be better, but will see once I put performance tyres on it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good Looking & Low Maintenance Too — Love it all, pretty much. Fun to drive, low cost/high efficiency, and good looking to boot. Really enjoy the JBL sound system, and the fact that you can drive over 400 miles without refilling the gas tank. Thumbs up!

Awesome Commuter! — What can I say, there's not a car on the road with an internal combustion engine that gets better gas mileage! Styling is an acquired taste, but I like it. Tons of technologhy, and phenomenal gas mileage! I regularly get 58+ MPG!

Darwinian Product — Survival in our world means increasing your mobility. Car manufactures are slow to create affordable economy cars. Toyota happens to be on the leading edge of marketing and distribution..I recommend this car and any Toyota product for everyone. YES

Unless Something Better Comes Along, I'll Buy Anohter. — The Prius is my second hybrid with a 2006 Civic as my first. The Civic would outrun the Prius on curvy roads and was a bit more fun to drive. I'm very impressed by the high degree of comfort, convenience and its ability to cruise comfortably at 90+ m.p.h. while achieving 45 m.p.g. with the Prius (Recent 225 mile trip home from NYC). Toyota made a wise decision to replace the smaller engine with the 1.8 Corolla engine. High build quality makes the car feel like it will stay new for many years and makes me feel like Toyota’s bad press is contrived. Even though this is not a high performance car, it is fun to drive and can achieve a respectable average speeds most anywhere. The most fun however is driving in the city when one's able to silently sneak up on people and cause them to stare and wonder how this car can pass silently. I also find it entertaining to beat the EPA 50 m.p.g. estimate. I recently achieved 51.3 m.p.g. on a round trip to Boston while setting my cruise control on 80 m.p.h. as often as I could (notice an emerging addiction?). I applaud an organization that can build a product that actually delivers what is promised. I eagerly await Toyota's plug-in Prius! I also eagerly await the Model S Tesla!

Go Get One. You Won't Regret It. — LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. What a great car for town driving. Fun to drive and suprisingly roomy for cargo and passengers alike. The seats fold all the way down into a large platform. Back seat is roomy enough for an adult to sit comfortably. I just filled my tank having only 1/4 tank left and it only cost me $18.00 (7 gallons). You can travel over 550 miles on a single tank of gas!!! A quality product at a reasonable price. I highly recommend for cost/enviornmentaly conscious people.

Overall Excellent, Unmatched By What I Had Or Looked At Previously — I like virtually everything about this car except the moderate-sized blind spot on both sides of the rear window. Fortunately, the excellent mirrows compensate for that in part, but not completely. The car feels extremely solid, runs very quite, and the seating is very comfortable with good back support.
