Extra Low Mileage — Love driving, favorite car to drive in over 50 years of driving ! Extremely low mileage 22,777 ! Backup camera (safety . . . . . especially in my neighborhood, lots of little kids !) Smart key system, means you'll never hunting thrugh your pockets/purse for your keys, simply touch the door handle and then push the start button (you don't even have to insert the key !) Average miles per gallon equals 47 !

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Only 22,777 1 owner mi.

Certified (means you have 77,000 more miles left on powertrain warranty)

Cons: At times, it seems underpowered, but those feelings fly away when filling the gas tank once a month !

Amazing Car! — The car was in very good condition, except that the tires were worn, but still passed inspection. The reason it was such a low price was that the mileage was 75,029. I love the car so much I am trying to buy another one!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great gas mileage, about 50 mpg, and fascinating engineering.

Cons: Average or below average acceleration.

Toyota Prius — Pretty cool. Green-tech FTW. I like the rear hatch, and the fact that the dash board has a little T.V. Screen on it to tell me my MPG. I have driven an older one and they seemed too futuristic. This one is just right.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: MPG

Cons: I dunno, nothing I guess.

Great Car, Worth The Money. Was Considering A Corolla Or Camry, Glad I Chose Prius. — Love this car. Great mileage (duh!). Dirt doesn't show. I've put everything from lumber to skis to a toilet in it. Hauls almost as much as my Suburban! If only it seated 6. Maintenance has been suprisingly cheap. Best surprise was 30k mile service for less that $200! Also preferred parking at work and Best Buy. Can't beat that!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Would buy another in a heartbeat (and I'm trying to)!

Cons: Wish it had a sunroof  & leather seats (2010 model does)

Great For Someone Who Does Not Care What The Look Of Their Car Is. — this looks horrible and it impossible to see out of the back the car handles extremely well and feels comfortable while driving. the car costs around 30,000 when all is said and done if you get all the major upgrades (nothing performancewise.)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: appearance

No Frills - It Works Well. — Good car - got 50 mpg last week. Acceleration and handling adequate. Interior comfortable. Low clearance means I drag the front end pulling out of parking lots frequently

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fuel economy

Cons: won't tow a horse trailer

You Are Not Doing Yourself Any Favors By Not Checking Out A Prius — LIKE mpg's (of course), the technology/gadgets; bluetooth, Voice/screen/steering wheel controls of nav/radio/CD/climate/phone and more, smart key (best invention ever) and spaciousness (probably one of the most spacious MID-Sized cars around)! DISLIKE lack of seat adjustments, not big on it's looks, and inability to turn off traction control :(

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: MPG: Avg. about 45mpg, Technology: Voice/screen/steering wheel controls of nav, radio/CD, climate, phone and more, SMART KEY

Cons: lack of seat adjustments and inability to turn traction control off :(

My Thoughts On The Prius — Technology- Navigation system, Backup Camera, Digital Interface, Smart-Key System, Hybrid. Appearance- Interior: Spacious room for size. Build Quality: Sound Fun Factor: Pretty Fun (Electric/Stalker Mode, Good and smooth acceleration, responsive breaking) (Steering doesn't feel like you're feeling the road as much as just driving on it).

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Electric-Mode, So much Technology, Spacious

Cons: The Nav-System sometimes has issues finding addresses..but I survive..but it can work without gps too.., steering to some degree

First Time Driving A Prius — First drive in a Prius. Florida summers aren't the best laboratory for hypermiling -- motor kicks on all the time with the AC on. Good use of space, and very roomy. Think I remember reviewers saying there is huge glare on the information screen, which is true. Must be placed at the wrong angle, or the windshield goes too far back. Not ready to go out and buy one, but curiosity is satisfied. Would be interested to see how the updated 2009 model drives.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good use of space, roomy.

Cons: Air Conditioning negates any electric motoring and mileage bragging rights
