2002 Toyota Prius 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
This car definitely delivers on its mileage promise. Like other reviewers, I've been getting about 45-50 mpg in regular driving. The most impressive mileage I got was 53 on a roughly 500 mile journey -- did the whole thing with one tank of gas. Mileage seems to vary with weather (the engine runs more in the cold). I looked up a bunch of the patents behind this car. Man those guys are clever. The connection between the gas engine and electric motor is truly elegant.
Favorite Features
Continuous transmission makes driving almost ethereal sometimes. 'Stealth' mode is a cool feeling. And, of course, the mileage & low pollution are great.
Suggested Improvements
Nothing major. The funny location of the shift doesn't bother me so much, but it does obscure some controls. More logical division of controls between physical buttons and touch- screen might be nice.
