    The Title Of The Car? I Don't Have It. Not Quite Paid Off Yet — Since most of you have gas guzzling SUV's and fill up every day, let me remind you that there are more fuel efficient cars out there. On 10 gallons I can cruise for about 525 miles before the next fillup. I average 50 mpg. Need I say more? But I must write 50 words or more. I think I made it.

    Pros: read above review

    Cons: Didn't mention anything in the review, so I guess there is none.

    The Dream Pruis — great gas mileage! It us very fun to drive because you know that you can drive all over and still get great gas mileage. Which is good because it saves you a lot of money! So you should buy a new prius today or tommorow or when ever you want to.

    Pros: gas mileage!

    Cons: nothing!

    Great City Car — This little car has been so fun to drive. It is reasonably peppy, holds our whole family, including a big German Shepherd and is a wonderful CITY car. It is not bad on freeways, but I have not yet taken it out on a highway. It's cute and fun and easy to park in the big city. We call it "Chiclet" because it looks like the little white gum drop.

    Pros: Low Carbon Footprint

    Cons: It beeps at you in reverse.  SO ANNOYING!!!!!  People outside the car can't hear the beeping, so it's not like it is to warn anyone.

    Best Buy. Bit Expencive To Buy, But Cheap To Run. — The toyota Prius is meant for those who want comfort from their car instead of performance. I´ve driven with my prius up 60 mpg under 4l/100km It´s not a car for a test drive because you need to learn to handle it properly to save fuel. This is why the rewiews are so bad. Best car I´ve ever had.

    Pros: Fuel economy, equipment level, handling.

    Cons: Takes people by surprice comming from behind silent.

    Best Commuter Car Ever — best commuter car ever - 55mpg on my 40 minutes commute in the city. just get to 35mph and then it runs on electric. seats are very comfortable and there is a LOT of room in the back - not much for shoulders (not enough for 3 adults i fear) but legroom is impressive !

    Pros: fuel economy, comfortable

    Cons: no cruise control on base model

    Love It! — I love our car! It gets over 50mpg!! Seriously! It is the Package 5, so it has every option available. The tan leather is beautiful. We had the windows tinted and they look awesome, especially with the white paint. The only thing we would change is the navigation. You can't use it when the car is moving, which is terrible. Love everything else about this car!!

    Pros: 50+mpg

    Cons: Navigation is not operable when the car is moving!

    Amazing — I have had this car for a little over a week and I love it. I have the backup camera and smart key system and they constantly amaze me. It's my new toy!

    Pros: Engine not even broken in yet and already I'm averaging 42.6 mpg for city/hwy combined!  Backup camera lets you see people/cars behind you without having to turn completely around while you're trying to back up.  Smart key system lets the car sense the key in my pocket without my having to take it out.  I can put my hand on the door handle and it automatically unlocks.  I sit down and push the power button and it starts...all with the key still in my pocket.  No locking your keys in the car!  The car also shows you how many mpg you are getting at any given time, allowing you to correct your driving in order to maximize your fuel usage...it trains you to drive smarter.  The shifting on this car is also so smooth, you're surprised to see how fast your're going because you don't feel the car shift.  It doesn't have a transmission like a regular car since it has the splitter.

    Cons: Poor rear view.  It's a hatchback so I have a sloped rear window that's pretty small as well as another small window beneath the spoiler.  This is another reason I chose the backup camera option.

    Solid Car, One Of Toyota's Best. Yet, They Still Have All The Old Problems... — Like the headline. its a solid car, and its one of Toyota's best. but the old problems are still there. really annoying beeping sounds, an inaccurate camera for the only thing to help you when you are backing up, and a volume limit to the stereo... why the hell are they limiting the volume?!

    Pros: Modern look, newest technology, super silent.

    Cons: Toyota's problems and a really annoying backing up sound that they
    don't even put in most new cars anymore.

    I Love My Prius, Especially Helpful With The Sky-rocketing Gas Prices. :) — Very reliable car...easy on the wallet when it comes to filling it up & it looks nice too. :)

    Pros: Very efficient; seats four; very quiet; spacious; smooth ride

    Cons: It's black so it gets dirty very easily.  That's the only con I can come up with.

    2008 Toyota Prius — I like how my car handles. My previous car had issues making a simple turn (i.e. the turn radius sucked) but with this one I can whip in and out of parking spots without issue. I love the backup camera, the fact that it's low emissions, and that I get about 47MPG.
