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

Review

What first hooked me on this vehicle is when the salesman moved the car forward and backward with no engine sound. The 2nd thing is the car's ability to go up into the mountains on I-70 from Denver to the Eisentower Tunnel while maintaining the speed limit and carrying 4 people. I had one problem, a faulty accelerator sensor. Have had no problems since. Gas mileage is below the quoted amount - Overall mileage averaging @ 41 mph.

Best Features

Stealth mode, which is moving with the engine off. The touch screen display, which shows whether the engine and/or motor is supplying the power, fuel economy, and provide radio controls.

Worst Features

Relocate radio buttons that are obstructed by steering wheel and/or gear shift lever. Increase horsepower of engine - at highway speeds of 70 mph or greater in a wind, much work from the engine is needed, but I guess this is true for most small vehicles.
