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

Review

In many ways this is just a nice family car, in spite of its novel design. It uses mostly stock components, so maintenance is less of an issue that you would think. On the other hand, it really is a car for the next century -- a hybrid gasoline/electric design that has great accelleration for a 48 mpg car (but not to be compared with a 360 ci V8, of course). After 2 years I'm out $0 other than car payments, gasoline and one set of tires.

Favorite Features

Quiet and efficient. And the owners really do stick together. I've yet to meet one that would not buy a 2004!

Suggested Improvements

More full hybrid choices from Toyota (maybe a real compact car, like the Echo, a pickup and a minivan) -- I'd like to have two different Priuses.
