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.

Great Little Car For Getting Around Cities And On Longer Trips — Traded in my minivan just in time to see gas prices skyrocket. Prius is great for gas mileage, parking and even long trips. I do miss the ease of putting things in a minivan, but everything has its advantages and disadvantages. Not as good at cooling hot California summers as my Honda, but the gas pump is in charge!

Miles Driven per Year:8,000

Pros: gas mileage, parking, roomy even for a tall person

Cons: cooling and heating not as efficient

A Solid Choice For A Comfortable, And Efficient Cruiser. — The car is smooth and has a quiet ride. The 1.5L gas engine can shudder a bit when first activated at low speeds and be a tad raspy. But combined with the electric motor, the overall effect is low noise levels. The front seats are very comfortable, and there is plenty of legroom for both front and rear seat passengers. The rear passengers will suffer from tight headroom, but leg and hiproom is plentiful. I've been averaging over 50 mpg in the occaisons that I've had to drive the Prius. It's a solid buy.

Pros: Exemplary fuel economy, comfortable seats, legroom, hiproom, fit and finish, build quality, quietness, ride, ergonomics

Cons: Somewhat of an odd appearance, large blind spots

Great Mileage And Better For The Environment — Gas mileage, 50 summer, 43 winter (the gas engine runs more in the colder weather to keep the engine warm). I can go anywhere from 430-500 mi. on a 10 gal tank, depending on the season. The car handles surprisingly well. More than adequate acceleration for getting on highways, etc, but once you are beyond 60, passing acceleration just isn't there. Pretty well appointed for the price. I have package 4, which includes Premium stereo and Bluetooth. It's larger than I would have thought, and while I can't load up like an SUV, with the back seats folded down, I can get a fair amount of stuff in there. I highly recommend it for anyone that has a hefty daily commute (I travel 85 mi. miles round trip each day). Also interesting to note that you get better mileage in heavy traffic or city than you do on the open highway (at slower speeds, the car runs more on electric than gas). I am definitely pleased with teh car and would buy another in a minute. The 2009 will be the next generation...can't wait to see it!

Pros: Handles extremely well, awesome gas mileage, nice features for the price

Cons: I could complain that it's not a speed demon, but that's not why anyone buys it.

A Fabulous, Fuel Efficient Vehicle — I purchased my '08 Prius mostly to take a step in helping the environment. The 44 mpg that I have been receiving was just the beginning. My Prius is spacious, comfortable and has a nav system that brings you into the 21st century. I have also read that it produces 70% less polutants than other vehicles in its class.

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Pros: fuel efficiency, navigation system, stereo, styling and space!

Cons: needs automatic driver seat.

Awesome Gas Mileage — I got this car mainly for the gas mileage, 46 mpg around town. It actually rides very nice and I have enjoyed all the options on it. I wish it has a power driver's seat.

Pros: gas mileage, stereo, backup camera

Cons: pickup (but that is understandable) - if you want a car with great pickup you obviously are not concerned about gas mileage

Fun To Drive — Easy to handle, back up cameria and IPod port is great -- installed a Sirius Radio makes the drive to work more fun.

Pros: Getting 45 MPG

Cons: Forgetting to put gas in since you don't need to very often.
