2012 Toyota Prius Plug-InReview

I bought a non plug-in model new in 2011, and wrecked it on the drive home hitting a deer. A few years later I bought a 2014 non plug-in model, and enjoyed it for a long time. I averaged 54mpg regularly mostly highway driving. Being the year 2021 now, I just bought a 9 year old 2012 plug-in model and I couldnt be happier. Im easily going to be averaging in the 60s with the added mileage from the extra battery. Hypermiling this car even further could get me into the 70s on a regular basis. I live at the top of a mountain so that impacts my overall mileage, but going down in the morning is always a free ride. There is nothing to compare this car to because Ive owned dozens of vehicles both new and used and even after all these years this car still feels like home to me. The experience is something you either enjoy, or havent matured enough to understand yet. When I want fun Ill ride my motorcycles. When I want to make my 2 hour daily commute a heck of a lot less expensive, Ill drive the plug-in Prius. At the current price of fuel, this car will save me a minimum of $300 per month in fuel costs alone. If the car and the job last over 33 months, the car will have paid for itself. That is where it where the smart money is at. I have the advanced tech package, so its got more features than a guy like me could ever need already. I dont buy cars to live in them, I buy them as tools. I dont need heated cup holders and blind spot monitors, I can turn my head and look in the side mirrors like people have been doing for decades. If you want to spend the rest of your life working a job you hate just to make a car payment to keep up with the Jones go for it. If you want to have money to do the things you really enjoy in this life, consider buying a used plug-in Prius and see how many smiled per gallon you can achieve as you pass as you pass each gas station.

Review By Guru91HC87

This is a middle*aged car, so I didnt expect miracles. But actually, Im very pleased SO FAR. Im impressed by the bells and whistles that Id missed by driving a cheap and basic SUV for 14 years, but ... Read More

Review By Guru9B6ZSK

Car is a good value. However, the interior package it came with was not as nice as my (current) 2012 Prius. It has fabric seats and a smaller GPS Screen not as easy to use as my current model. The ... Read More

Time will tell. I had a 2010 Prius which I LOVED. It was a delight to drive and to own: From Virginia Beach it took me to places like Ohio and Atlanta. That car, however, lacked three important feat... Read More

Its The Right Car That Needs The "right" Person By Mike

its certainly not a performance car, but it can be fun to drive... or at least saying that you're not using gas is fun! It's also fun to fill your car with $25 and it actually be full from empty a... Read More
