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

Review

When you are sit at a red light, the internal combustion engine stops and you run just on electricity! It's like a golf cart. The car gives the feeling that it has stalled out, but it is fully functional! I LOVE that! I also love that if you run the car in Los Angeles, the exhaust is cleaner than the ambient air!!!! Not a month goes by that some stranger stops me and asks how I love it. And I do. It's a brilliant concept. They do it very well. Oil changes are every 7500 miles, and Toyota has paid for every one of mine. The only thing I have ever paid for is a new set of tires.

Favorite Features

The center display screen is brilliant, as is running in "Stealth mode," which is what we call it when the gas engine turns off and you are driving like a golf cart. It's comfortable, and deceptively roomy in the front and the back. Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV).

Suggested Improvements

They've incorporated all of any that I can think of into the 2004 model.
