2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

We've had the 02 Prius for about 2 years (our first Prius), and our experience has been great. In fact we bought an 08 Prius and gave the 02 to our son to drive to school. I expect we will always have Prius for the foreseeable future. Gas mileage is lower in winter (35-39), and as high as 48 mpg in summer on a 700 mile road trip. It's still weird when the engine shuts down when at a stop light....but that's just money in my pocket ! There have been zero-nada problems with anything. It just purrs along all the time. We like the 08 even better because Toyota updated many things like a a fold down rear seat, better stereo radio, and even more room in back seat.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage at 40-45 in normal driving. Another positive is the excellent room in the car (for a small car) Very dependable! The standard features (power locks, windows, stereo, outside temp, etc are nice in base package) Resale value.

Suggested Improvements

Fold down rear seats. Small 12v battery should be up front under the hood, so it would warm up in the winter, when driving. (That might help some of the starting issues when cold) The 03 isn't the most stylish car on the road.
