Update: After a year, the car remains great. On a 1000-mile trip in the summer averaging 70 mph on interstates, it returned 47.9 mpg (based on fill-ups, which matched the computer exactly!). On the same trip the year before, our Prius C did only slightly better at 48.2 mpg. On rural highways around here going 60 mph, our Eco gets 53-54 mpg. Around town in the summer, I easily average 45 mpg. Right now in colder temps (teens and 20s), it gets 36 mpg around town. Love it! It had to go back to the dealer twice. First, the cruise control stopped working (a computer glitch that was quickly corrected). Second, the left rear brake had to be replaced because it was making a loud squeaking sound. Frustrating problems, but both were covered under warranty. On long trips, the car is comfortable and quiet. The driver's seat fits me perfectly for long trips. However, I couldn't spend a great deal of time in the back seat on long trips - the seats are too stiff. I also still can't figure out why they didn't put any kind of cup holders in the rear seat of the base Eco. Mostly, I just continue to be impressed by the efficiency of the manual transmission Eco engine.Report it
