$4,000.00 to replace the battery is a good enough reason to stay away from this vehicle.

The front structs / shocks to be replaced. Interior is good but car needs some repair work. A little expensive in terms of price but not bad deal If compare with relative 2008 models.

I Loved This Car. —

I used this car for my daily commute as well as several long trips. I'd set the cruise control at 10 MPH above the speed limit, and relax. Traffic jams became a matter of pride as I knew that my engine would shut off when I wasn't moving. (Ironically, the Camry Hybrid gets BETTER fuel economy in stop and go driving that it does cruising the highway at 65 MPH. It's all in the way the Synergy Drive System works.) I enjoyed saving money on gas while remaining relatively anonymous in my normal looking car. As a nice bonus, Massachusetts allows you to travel in the HOV lane without passengers if you are driving a hybrid. Also, the Hybrid Only spaces at the Boston Common garage are usually available and in a primo location :-) The car has plenty of power (I used to jokingly say to my passengers "that's TWO engines" when I'd have to accelerate to merge in traffic or for some other reason. The handling is fine, once you get used to it. This car is not for a slalom course, it's for driving to work in comfort. The braking is different from a non-hybrid. The car is slowed by regenerative braking until you get down to 12 MPH, in regular situations. So the brakes get almost no wear if you brake slowly and smoothly. In a panic the regular brakes kick in immediately and stop you in plenty of time. This is a fantastic car. I'm replacing it with a newer hybrid and wanted to sell it while there is still plenty of miles left on it for the next owner.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, fantastic mileage, reliable, very cheap to maintain.

Cons: Trunk space

Hybrid Just Not Worth It Yet — The car is a great car but I feel we would have been just as happy with a non-hybrid car. Actually may have been more happy since a big portion of trunk is lost to battery cooling. The car is now running in mid 30's for fuel economy which could easily be done with a diesel car and not the extra cost upfront from the battery. If you are looking for best fuel economy, diesel is still king. If you want to save the earth, remember the nickel in the battery is mined in canada, transported to Europe to be made into the battery, then shipped to the US or Japan to be assembled. If you recycle the car when you are done you still have consumed more energy than you saved.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Many confort items, quiet ride, smooth ride

Cons: heavy and handles like it.

Excellent Blend Of Comfort And Economy —

She likes it so far, although the seat is not as good as her old Lexus. We will see how it holds up, our previous hybrids have done well. This one is much more comfortable. Good power with the electric assist. We had an issue with the brakes recently. The lights came on and alarms screamed and scared her to death. When I took it to my mechanic the next day I could feel the brakes engaging although I wasn't doing it. When I got to the shop the left front wheel was warm. The mechanic said the code said "low pressure in the accumulator" in the brake actuator and maybe I should take it to the dealer. While he was backing out of the garage very slowly, the brakes engaged on their own, then the lights all went off and the alarm stopped and it's been fine ever since. The dealer said everything looked good, and they wouldn't advise do anything. A new actuator is $2800.00 for the part alone.So we are just driving it. Might have been a computer glich, no one seems to know. Update: They had a recall for a brake problem, it only messed up that one time. We have grown to like it very much, my Prius's seats are not as comfortable for a long trip, the mileage is under 40 MPG but still very good. I can see why Consumer Reports ranks it #1.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good mileage, comfortable and quiet ride, well equipped.

Cons: Keyless system is a little confusing.
