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.

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

Pros

50 MPG, lots of zip, very sporty and fun to drive, comfortable on long drives.  Blue tooth is great.  A really fun, road gripping car on any mountain road with power to spare.  On the highway, easy to go 86 and not even realize.... in fact, you can be going at 75 mph and step on it and the car jumps!  Seriously, a sporty fun car to drive.

Cons

Cargo cover is a must have add-on.  Stock tires are done at 20k miles, MUST BE REPLACED BY 'LRR' TIRES OR MILEAGE WILL LITERALLY DROP FROM 50+ MPG TO 35 MPG.... that is a FACT!  AND.... SOME TIRE STORES DON'T KNOW AND THEN ARGUE THIS FACT.  Sadly most PRIUS OWNERS ARE UNAWARE.   YOU MUST BUY 'LRR' (Low Rolling Resistance) AS REPLACEMENT TIRES...( yes, we found out the hard way.  Les Schwab sold us the wrong tires, the car was sluggish, slow and we dropped to 36 mpg in half a tank of gas.  Researched the problem and found the LRR to be the key.   We ended up with Bridgestone Ecopias A/S- they ROCK!  Super fast, super fun, and according to other Prius owners, increase mpg!.

A Great, Solid, Fun Car, Would Buy Again Without Any Hesitation. — Love everything about this car! Fun and Efficient. Car is as tight now as the day we drove it home 4 years ago. Reliable, it holds its' value for a reason. Would not hesitate to say have no doubt with proper maintenance this car will last and last ... and stay tight.

Pros

The ride is still great after 16k miles.  Very comfortable and easy to handle car with the best gas mileage around

Cons

Only negative is the visibility through the rear hatch when trunk is loaded; there is a horizontal see-through area on the hatch lid that becomes obstructed, which impacts your ability to see traffic behind you.  Even after 2 years of ownership, that is still an irritation.  Compared to my Honda CRV, storage space is considerably smaller, which is a problem when traveling as a family. Engine strains when climbing hills in the Cumberland Gap area, but since we don't go there so often, that's a minor complaint.  Overall, pickup is adequate.

Overall, A Great Car With Some Minor Downsides — Solid history of great performance. If you have to buy a car these days, it makes the most sense to buy a hybrid because the gas engine is going to be the buggy whip of the 21st century. This car is excellent for a number of applications, but has some downsides. Before you buy, make sure that the visibility issue, mentioned above, is not a problem for you.

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!

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!

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

Great Fuel Economy car! Average 50 mpg. No other model in this category even came closer to this one for years now! Great technology.

Cons

Low power car. You can drive like a normal car, that will get you fuel range of only 35-40 mpg.

Little Dream — Very slim design with looks of a cute car. This nice little TOY is doing its JOB perfectly and keeping up to the expectations by saving the money on GAS! As long as I’m gentle to this TOY, it returns 50 mpg. In my rough times, it gave me 42 mpg! If you are obsessed with aggressive driving, I don't recommend this car to you! No major complaints. I may start to think about the battery after hitting 10 years or so on this car... by then, I may have plenty of options with current fuel prices!!

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.)
