2001 Prius - Drive it! Love it!

Vehicle

2001 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Other than the initial sale (which was right when the Prius was released for sale in the US), this has been the most amazing automobile experience I have ever had. I've had it for 18 months without a complaint. I have put on about 18K miles so far, and am averaging about 47.7 mpg. I am re-assured by the quality of the vehicle. Not the cheesy tin can that I was expecting from buying an import. It's got a steel body (which takes away from performance/mpg, but adds to the solid feel). It's no slouch when you need acceleration, but that's not why I bought it. I love "hearing the light change" as the Toyota commercial so succinctly put it. Lots of interior room and a comfortable ride.

Favorite Features

Hybrid Engine -- wouldn't have bought it otherwise.

Suggested Improvements

Add cruise control as an option.
