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


Review

After 14 months the mileage began to
fall and the dealer claims to find no
problem. Mileage has never matched
what the computer says, off
consistently 2 to 5 miles, more
lately. I got consistent 46 mpg first
14 months, more on long straight
drives, then it fell to 23 mpg for a
month, then gradually climbed back up
to about 30. Climate control also
stopped working efficiently. Mostly I
like the car, but will switch to Honda
this year as the dealer seems
uninterested in the strange drop in mpg.


Best Features

Computer screen, controls in middle instead of in front of driver - took getting used to, now I like it.

Review

Fun to drive, drove from Michigan to
Florida for $50.26! Very comfortable
car


Best Features

Cheap on gas, comfortable, and fun to drive!


Worst Features

Car needs armrest in the middle, lights in glove box & by the outside mirror adjustments. Also, we don't use our headlights as other drivers flash their brights at us. Had it into the dealership, can't adjust, we use only the driving lights now, still get flashed by other drivers.

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


Review

This car has the smallest turn radius of any car
I've ever driven--smaller even then our miata.
Tooling around in electric mode with the
continuously variable transmission is a lot of
fun. Parking it is a dream as well--reverse gear
is all electric and you have such fine control of
the acceleration on the electric, not anything
like the surge from a gas engine.


Best Features

Continuously variable transmission. High- mounted display. Tall car view from driver's seat.


Worst Features

Most everything has been fixed in the 2004, but I'd still like 802.11b and an MP3 player in the car.
