A Low-testosterone Car That's High On Fuel Economy. — It saves me money, but it's beating me to death on my 90-mile round-trip commute to work. The hatchback is great; The way the opening is shaped, I can load a lot of whatever by folding down the back seats.

Pros: economy

Cons: comfort

Prius Is Great, Very Hi-tech, Well Designed. — I started with a Gen1, 2002 Prius with almost 300,000 miles but ran great with only the need of replacement of the OEM12 volt battery. However, the one time I had a system warning light Iite (Tiangle of Death). I took it to the dealer and they told me to they would have to replace the HV Traction battery, for almost $3500 (more than i paid for the car). Took it home and went on line, read the manuals and did my own testing. Traced problem to the 12 volt battery having low voltage and corroded connections. Used jumper battery to prove that this was the problem and it was. Replaced the 12 volt with Optima Yellow Top and never hand another problem. Have since sold that car to a friend and she loves it (once she got beyond the concern about the high mileage) and "just enjoy" the fine ride. I now have a 2007 Gen2 Prius that I am in the process of converting to Plug-in-Hybrid/EV. Steve

Pros: Well designed and reliable for such a complex system.
There are a few independent shops in major cities that can reliably diagnose and repair the Prius.

Cons: Systems are understandably complex and beyond the repair ability of most non dealer shops/service mechanics. The dealers are frequently unable to properly diagnose problems correctly and too quick to blame problems on the most expensive Hybrid system components, ie. HV battery or power converter, etc. Owners need to become informed about the possible problems, though rear,. or find a reliable independent shops. Or subscribe to the very good Prius forums online, such as Prius Chat.

Every One Should Own A Prius — Great handling and very safe vehicle. It drives well in all kinds of weather. Never done towing but handles well on mountain roads. I recommend as a first car as it's easy to drive and the rear camera makes for easy, bumpless parking.

Pros: I'm 6'4" and it's very comfortable to drive. Great car with over 200 original patents. Keyless starting and entry is awesome.

Cons: Not the fastest horse out of the gate.

Guilt Free Car Trips — Back in 2007 we saw Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" we went out and bought a Prius. I've never regretted it, should have bought two. It's hard to describe to younger generations what it's like to drive guilt-free, but driving the prius in todays world comes close that feeling I had in high school back in 1968 when I got my license and gas was $0.34/gal. Driving was a blast. The Prius isn't quite as exhilarating as my motorcycle, but I can go really long distances much more comfortably.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 50 mpg., toyota reliability, eco-friendly.

Cons: paint

Very Nice Toyota Prius With Leather Seats And Gets 40-50+ Mpg! — This is the best and favorite car I have ever owned. It is great for in town and highway driving. I have put over 20k miles on this car in about half a year, and I would sell it to someone I know and recommend a Prius to anyone.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Amazing gas mileage, comfort, style, handling, space for passengers and cargo, eco-friendly, wallet-friendly. Easy to maintain, never had an issue with the battery or electrical system.

Cons: A few nics and bumps, small blemishes in the interior.

Buy It If You Absolutely Must Have The Best Fuel Economy, Or Want To Present An Eco-frienldy Image. —

I started my Driver’s Education class in the summer of 2008, and after a couple hours of class work, my instructor put me at the wheel of a brand new Prius. This example was designed specifically for driving instruction, since it had a second brake pedal for the passenger and “Student Driver” decals along the sides. My initial snail-pace cruise around the parking lot was, at that moment, the most fun I had ever had in my life. I relished the feeling of being in total control (save for the occasional stomp on the passenger-brake by my instructor when we got too close to a curb). The experience of driving a modern hybrid was a bit disconcerting for me as a novice driver. Most of the traditionally mechanical controls were electronic in the Prius. The parking brake, gear selector, and starter were all buttons on the dashboard. Speed was indicated by a digital display, and the tachometer was absent entirely. Acceleration was silent (until the gas engine started), and the brake pedal provided no feedback. Driving the Prius felt more like operating a computer than controlling a vehicle. The Prius had a back-up camera to make up for its poor rearward visibility, but since this was a luxury most cars didn’t have, the instructor kept a towel draped over the screen, requiring me to turn around and look out the split rear window to reverse. It was only after driving my Mom’s Corolla that I finally got accustomed to what it felt like to drive a "real" car. This car was not one that I would ever choose to drive of my own free will, but it provided a door into a world that I would soon fall in love with, and so I have developed a respect for it (with mild reservations).

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Smooth ride and control response.
Epic gas mileage.

Cons: It's a computer that could be mistaken for a car to the untrained eye.
Drive-by-wire controls mean no feedback.
The amazing fuel economy will probably never cover the premium you will pay for an overpriced hybrid.

Technologically Superior Vehicle. — Until you drive a car like this, you don't appreciate it. Say good-bye to the gas station, 44 MPG, typically fill it up with 8 gallons and you are off for another 350 miles, 5,000 miles between service, brake pads last forever. Silent and clean in parking lots, stop lights and drive thru's. Very safe car, easy to drive, quick, agile, and yet surprisingly roomy. Speed or power is not an issue. The cargo room will shock you.

Pros: This car uses half the gas of most others and it seats five.  Good sound system, great cargo space, good head room, great climate system.  It is a great driving machine.

Cons: May have enjoyed turning off stability control sometimes, but it probably saved me from an accident on the interstate at 80 miles an hour when hitting water one time.

2007 Prius — This is a great economy car that can transport people and cargo for as cheap as possible. Minor imperfections but overall a fantastic car. I Would buy another and have heard that the newer ones get better gas mileage and some have lumbar support which is a major plus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage.

Cons: Poor front seat comfort.

A Great Car For The Practical Minded! — the prius is an excellent car for people who drive a lot but don't mind the trade off of handling. after all, the prius was designed to be a practical car, not a high performance car! if you're looking for amazing fuel economy and a low cost vehicle to maintain, and you're ok with the odd looking shape and a bare bones driving experience, i recommend the prius.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: so reliable! excellent gas mileage, zero maintenance issues (beyond normal scheduled things like oil change, replace tires)

Cons: if you're into great handling, this car is a bit of a bore
