2001 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I own one of the first Priuses delivered in the USA, and at 178,000 miles it is still a joy to drive. I am continually amazed at its reliability, gas mileage, emissions control, regenerative braking, power, and handling. Toyota "hit a home run" with this model. I do keep up the maintenance with 7,500 mile synthetic oil changes, and parts replacements when necessary. I expect 300,000 miles from this car.
Great emissions control. Original brakes still at 60% due to great regenerative braking which slows the car without intensive brake use, excellent power to pass and accelerate for such a gas saving car.
Electric seat adjustment (available on newer models). Fold down rear seating (now available).
