A good commuter ride

Vehicle
2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
This car is solidly built for cars in its class. Road noise is average. The fit and finish is excellent. Despite its small size, the interior feels roomy for passenger and driver. Seating for four is adequete, for five is uncomfortable. The audio and heater controls could be better located for the driver. The acceleration is surprising considering the 1.4L motor. There is plenty of power to deal with quick jumps into the flow of traffic. The brakes are a little grabby, but I got used to it. The biggest drawback is the low friction tires: the car tends to roll over the sidewall a bit during cornering.
Favorite Features
The vastly improved fuel mileage and low emmisions without huge performance deficits is the best feature of this car. The generous warranty on the new technology makes the buying experience less nerve wracking.
Suggested Improvements
Dealers should offer a higher performance tire as an option. Data regarding mileage differences between types of tires would help consumers make a decision. Audio controls are hard to reach and require the driver to lean forward to search through menus on a touch screen.
