I’ve never driven a Prius before I had to get used to it drivability but I enjoy being modest in my gas usage and this car is perfect. Just love it

I loved this car. I even drove an 05 Prius and 2010 model back to back and preferred the 05 over the 2010. It had many more features, and just more like a car for myself. Loved it, felt like I was in space but moving!

Do Not Buy This Car — I was amazed that a three year old car driven by adults was so poorly made from such cheap materials that it was already self destructing. And that unless you drove it like a complete jerk you only realized about 30-35 mpg

Pros: Gets you from A to B

Cons: Flimsy, poor quality, electrical problems, horrible in the wet

Excellent Overall Daily Driver. — This car rocks on fuel economy! I only fill up once every 3-4 weeks. Lots of cargo space for hauling things. Low maintenance. A great car for both sporting around town and longer distance driving - trips, etc. This is my 2nd Prius.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I have found this car both roomy and spacious. The cargo area, with the rear seats folded down is comparable to my Chevy Blazer.

Cons: The seats are a little on the hard side.

Great Value — Overall great vehicle. Well kept, reliable, lots of room, economical with great gas mileage. Would highly recommend a Prius to anyone looking to purchase a front wheel drive vehicle. It handles well in traffic with decent acceleration and is easy to maneuver.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, comfort, technology, reliability

Cons: Would be nice if it has AWD

Gas Sipper, Armadillo-looking — I always thought the prius looked like an armadillo - not the most attractive animal. Some cars take styling ques from other animals like the shark, or jaguar, but this one gets the dorky animal of the year award. At least they didn't use the platypus as inspiration for this car's body style. It gets great mpg, but you know that.

Pros: Gas sipper

Cons: Kinda ugly

Beauty And The Beast — When this car first came out, everyone thought it looked ugly, but when the economy turned south in 2008, people started really looking at them more carefully, and behold, in 2014, it is kind of a status symbol now to own a prius. what a turn of events. i bought it from my company when we sold off all the fleet vehicles. i got it for a song, i tell ya. anywhere from 38 to 60 mpg is my driving spectrum. like it or not, it is true. i can get 60 mpg on a highway trip, coming from the upstate of SC to the midlands.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas sipper

Cons: Kinda ugly

Great Car — I wish I had another one. I have over 300k miles on my 2005 prius. It's been a great car. I drive well over 1500 miles a week and still get in the mid 40s mpg. The gas tank can be a little goovy in the winter, but I can live with it.

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: none

Amazing Dependable Fuel Saving Transportation — This is my first hybrid car purchase. For a combo electric hybrid battery is very peppy & have no problems merging into traffic. Automatic climate controls never have to fiddle around with the heat & A/C just set it and forget it. This car has just over 180k but is still going strong, lots of power and is getting an average of 50-MPG. This is a Generation (2) Prius with a package IV has the standard features plus more, such as HID lights, Navigation System blue tooth phone auto dim rear view mirror heated side view mirror's home link for garage door opener. The only thing missing on the 2005 package IV is rear back up camera, and TPMS tire pressure monitor system. Car has lot's of room for the kid's Has LATCH system for the baby car seat. Rear hatch has amazing space. I once carried a New Hot Water Heater in it's box in my Prius Has easy Fold down rear seats. All I can say to sum it all up is that it's truly an AMAZING CAR. In fact my roommate just bought a Prius & my best friend Just bought his 2011 Prius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love everything about my Prius, I've owned this amazing automobile for 3-years.

Cons: I can't say anything negative about it, it's a Toyota enough said.

Unfortunately it was too expensive for me. It is very much like a 2021 Prius in having similar look and similar interior. Driving it felt the same. It is probably a good value. Read More
