2012 Toyota Prius v Five 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I traded a 2008 Buick Enclave for my 2012 Toyota Prius. Overall, I agree with the other reviews with one HUGE caution.
On the turnpike the road noise is deafening... So much so that having a conversation or listening to the radio, CD, I Pod etc results is a challenge. The Buick was whisper quiet and my Prius V is similar to driving a tin can.
Other than the above the car is perfection but the cabin noise is irritating.
I sincerely don't know if purchasing a loaded Prius to gain excellent fuel economy was worth giving up the creature comforts of peace and quiet.
Excellent Fuel Economy
Added insulation for road noise
Operable roof window
