2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
The 2002 Toyota Prius is without a
doubt the best car I have owned in
terms of quality and reliablity. In the
18 months I have owned the car I have
not had even one problem; only
returning to the dealer for oil changes
and scheduled maintenance. The car is
very quite and comfortable even for
long trips (Austin to Los Angeles,
Austin to Mexico City for example).
Great mileage. Low noise, minimal
vibration even at 70+ mph. Nice
The 2002 lacked cruise control. New
models now have this feature. Also
larger wheels. Disc brakes on the rear
wheels would be nice. Amenities like
sun roof and leather seats would
enhance the driving experience.
